Lakeside, one of Richmond’s oldest residential districts, is also a fine stop for shoppers and is accessible from I-95 North and from Broad Street via Glenside Drive. Franco’s Fine Clothier, Fin and Feather Pet Store, Embellish, Feathernesters and Coleman Brothers Flowers are in the area, plus you can pamper yourself with a visit to one of the many nearby salons. You’ll also find not-so-hidden treasures at Consignment Connection, and Hunter Lange Antiques & Vintage Chic. At the intersection of Lakeside Avenue and Hillard Road is the Hub, one of Richmond’s oldest shopping centers. There you’ll find I Cater, a bistro style luncheon shop. In the same strip is Robin’s Nest antiques and MacAdoo's.

The Garden is a member of the Lakeside Business Association.
