Still, I can totally see why everyone wants to be here in the summer.
Today's CVG Star honors a shop that both locals and summertime tourists will really enjoy.
The White-Weathered Barn
41 Front Street
Greenport, NY 11944
This unique boutique is good local karma at work. Shopowners and artists themselves, Rena and Jason Wilhelm are committed to highlighting regional artisans, many of whom are from Long Island. They offer a number of in-house custom made products, including beautiful wood signs. I fell in love with the little tongue-in-cheek charms, made from antique silver seafood forks and appropriately stamped "north":
Such a fun conversation piece to add to a chain or charm bracelet.
Less than $25, it's a great way to support local craftsmanship. I wear mine a lot.
The shop has a breezy, wabi-sabi feel that suits any homeowner looking for antique, natural or coastal décor.
Beautiful local prints, canvas totes and wine bags, silk shawls
Unique handmade jewelry pervades the boutique...
...as well as linen waters, soaps, scrubs and candles in a variety of scents.
A dreamy mantelpiece offers inspiration for home decorating and features candles,
mercury glass arrangements and other wares that are for sale.
