Great news! After the success of our Christmas season cookie sales via Very Virginia Shop, I’ve decided to once again offer cookies for pick up the same way for the week of Valentines Day.

Once again, I’m offering local pickup of Lola’s fresh-baked, from-scratch cookies, sold by the baker’s dozen and sugar cookies by the half dozen. Order online and then pick them up in historic downtown Leesburg.

You can buy a dozen of one of my popular flavors, or an assortment that includes some Valentines Day-themed sugar cookies. I’ll be packing them in bakery boxes with red tissue paper and a Lola sticker, just as we did at the bakery.

There are a few things you should know.

First, the address of Very Virginia is 16 South King Street. Second, pickup is from 1pm to 5pm only — so please select a pickup day when you can definitely make it into downtown Leesburg during the afternoon. Third, my online store is a bit finicky and will act like you’ve placed a shipping order. Please ignore that: All cookie orders are for pickup only.

(We’ll send an e-mail reminder to everyone who orders.)

And last, I recommend ordering early to ensure availability. This is important: I’ll be deleting the most popular pickup dates from the online order form as I reach capacity — so if you absolutely need a February 14th pickup, for example, now’s the time to order.

My deep thanks to Very Virginia’s owner, Sola Pallotta, for enabling me to bake for Leesburg again this season. Be sure to get other Virginia-themed gifts when you’re in her store!
