JAMES CITY- The Sipping Flea announced plans on September 29 to expand the business and open a location at Williamsburg Premium Outlets on Richmond Road.
The Sipping Flea will open a coffee shop called The Sip at Williamsburg Premium Outlets in November ahead of the holiday shopping season. The Sip will also specialize in pastries and sandwiches.
The original The Sipping Flea, a coffee shop and tea room that is also popular for its donuts, is located in the Colonial Towne Plaza shopping center, which is also on Richmond Road. In May, the business added an ice cream shop called The Frozen Flea Ice Cream Shoppe to its services.
The Sipping Flea is an offshoot of The Flipping Flea, an indoor flea market with three spaces: The Flipping Flea 1, 2, and Midway. The Flipping Flea first opened in 2018.
