Fredericksburg will once again have a chocolatier

Downtown Fredericksburg will once again have a chocolatier when Sweets on Caroline, a new confectionary shop, opens early this fall.
Sweet on Caroline will sell high quality chocolates and other confections at 817 Caroline St.

Jennifer Beach, former manager of Frenchman’s Corner in Culpeper, is opening Sweets on Caroline in the storefront where Tanya Richey’s art studio has been located for the last five years.

TASTE Oil Vinegar Spice owners Jan Davis and George Farrar will partner with Beach to open the new business. Their business at 815 Caroline St. shares the more than 4,000-square-foot building with the shop.

Richey said her decision to close the studio on July 28 coincided with an opportunity for her to go to Japan and paint in a town outside of Tokyo.  She said her popular cards will still be available for purchase at the new shop and an auction of her work is slated for the end of August at Castiglia’s downtown.
