I have been featuring my Favorite Fridays for several months now and want to give you a few updates.


A. Dodson’s just opened their third store (the first one in Virginia Beach).  You can visit their new location at 500 Laskin Rd – at the corner of Holly. They have great gifts, unique apparel and items for the home.  www.adodsons.com


Amazing Glazed Donuts, located in the Great Bridge section of Chesapeake, has served over 20,000 donuts in the past 11 weeks.  They make them fresh and are served hot.  Amazing Glazed also serves Italian gelato, sorbet and custard.  Can’t decide between custard and donuts?  No problem.  You can order a donut ice cream sundae or a donut ice cream sandwich.  Check their Facebook page for flavors of the day.


Buttercream Cupcake Cafe has fantastic cupcakes.  Flavors change daily so check their Facebook page as well.  One of their new cupcakes is a Chicken and Waffle Cupcake.  Let me know if you try it.  My favorite flavor is Peach Cobbler.  A new menu will start in September.  Buttercream Cupcake Cafe is located in the Greenbrier section of Chesapeake at 732 Eden Way.


Second Sale Consigment, The Wise Owl, Lady Antiquity, and 3 Little Blackbirds are consignment  stores selling unique, antique and affordable home furnishings.  A new shop, Refreshed Coastal Inspired Living, is opening this weekend in the same shopping center.  Be sure to support these local businesses.
