What is old is new again and this is one of Lakeside’s greatest strengths: a cool, vintage vibe. One-of-a-kind shops dot the the avenue. Shoppers can hunt for all kinds of treasures: repurposed goods, custom-jewelry, outdoor and garden art, salvage, collectibles, handmade goods, and vintage décor. A year-round Farmer’s Market two days a week adds to the local flavor.
Lakeside is one of the few shopping districts in Henrico with sidewalks, making it extremely walkable. The location can’t be beat; close to major highways and on the Richmond City/Henrico County line. For more than 70 years people have been coming to Lakeside to shop; a section called The Hub was one of Henrico’s first shopping centers, founded in 1948.
It’s no wonder many young families are moving to the neighborhood and more and more people are re-discovering Lakeside.
