JAMES CITY-What first began as an online business on Etsy selling vintage home décor and collectibles has turned into a brick-and-mortar retail establishment that opens this spring.

A grand opening is planned for Vintage Summers, Ltd. on Poplar Creek Lane on Saturday, May 8. Sue Summers, a mother of six, first started the business from her home in 2014 so she could work while raising her children. As the popularity of Vintage Summers grew, she decided to expand and open a physical location for her products.

Vintage Summers, Ltd. carries various items including vintage home décor, clothing, jewelry, and collectibles as well as eco-friendly products from local vendors and artists including candles and beauty products. Vintage Summers, Ltd. will also sell items such as smudge sticks and saplings to benefit local charities.

“We are so excited to bring an eco-friendly sustainable shopping experience to the community,” Summers said in a release. “Whether you’re looking for a piece of your grandmother’s china, plastic-free beauty products, or ethically sourced gifts, you will find it at Vintage Summers Ltd, where bygone meets mindful change.”

The grand opening celebration for the new retail store will include raffles, giveaways, and refreshments. Vintage Summers will be open Tuesday through Friday 10am to 4pm and Saturday 9am to 6pm.

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
