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.

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
