NORGE — The Sipping Flea just got a lot cooler.
As part of the Flipping Flea markets, located at 6927 Richmond Road in the Colonial Towne Plaza Shopping Center, the coffee shop will be adding ice cream to the mix of fun already found at the markets.
Nancy Lee, owner and founder of the Flipping Flea markets, announced the new addition on Facebook earlier this month. The “Frozen Flea” will feature 16 gourmet flavors from The Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream, a company based out of Madison, WI.
“Their ice cream is made with this amazing Wisconsin cream so you end up with a nice creamy ice cream,” Lee said. “I like good ice cream and this is good ice cream.”
The ice cream shop will be located right next to the Flipping Flea #3 Midway. Lee said that a tentative opening date will be sometime in late May.
Also starting in late May, the Sipping Flea will also be introducing a lunch menu. The coffee shop will begin offering “simple lunches,” such as assorted chicken salad, from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
Though the Sipping Flea just opened last August, Lee said that the shop has seen tremendous feedback from the community.

“The local community has just really responded and been incredibly supportive,” she said.
The Flipping Flea markets have also seen a steady amount of growth. What started off as one Flipping Flea in 2018 has grown to three markets with over 100 local vendor booths.
“You never know what you’re going to find here,” Lee said. “But now people can come out, enjoy a coffee or ice cream, and wander the shops. It’s a perfect way to spend a day.”
The Flipping Flea markets are open 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday, and 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday.
