JAMES CITY-The Sipping Flea is expanding its services to include an ice cream shop just in time for the summer season.

The business announced on social media its plans to open The Frozen Flea Ice Cream Shoppe in May. An exact date has not been released.

Currently, The Sipping Flea, located in the Colonial Towne Plaza shopping center on Richmond Road, sells specialty coffees and teas, mini donuts, pastries, and smoothies. The Sipping Flea opened last year as an offshoot of The Flipping Flea, an indoor flea market in Williamsburg.

The Frozen Flea Ice Cream Shoppe will specialize in ice cream made in Wisconsin in a variety of flavors.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
