The Flower Cupboard Continues To Thrive In New Location

YORK-A new location has brought a change of pace for long-time Williamsburg fixture The Flower Cupboard.

The florist shop moved a few months ago from its downtown Williamsburg location to a larger space on Bypass Road next to Rocco’s Smokehouse Grill.

“The move has not affected our business in any negative way whatsoever,” said Cathy Nester, who has owned the business since 1996. “We are busier than ever. The new space is more efficient for work production, and easier access for customer parking.”

The additional space will also enable The Flower Cupboard to expand events and offer more classes, demonstrations, and hands-on opportunities.

“We are also able to display our wedding and rental items to brides and customers now that the restrictions are being lifted,” Nester said.

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
