|Lighting the Hamptons one lamp at a time!|
Wainscott, the land of quarries and Speedway Stations has two new things to actually brag about. The opening of the new Home Goods and the arrival of Osteria Salina at the former site of Georgica Restaurant and night club. I’ll have more on the restaurant tomorrow!
|See I’m not kidding!|
So why was it so crowded? Well the discounted purveyor of all things domestic featured everything from Pratesi sheets to Baccrat and Waterford wine glasses at around 50% off of normal retail prices. They also have a good collection of linens and even some furniture and rugs. Yes, the Hamptons may be considered a land of excess but that doesn’t mean they don’t like a good bargain here on the east end. I really believe this will be good for all the business owners in the area since it will attract folks who normally wouldn’t travel to Wainscott to shop. The more the merrier and the more cash for everyone who buys lunch, doesn’t find the right sofa, needs a new bed or has been wanting to get some new blinds!Meanwhile, after about a month the gym in Sag Harbor is open once again. It’s cleaner, lighter and has a slew of fancy new lockers. While much of the old equipment has returned, the fresh coat of paint and what I guess was a really good cleaning has actually made a difference. The gym has never looked better and the towels are new too! If you don’t believe me… see for yourselves! By the way, don’t get confused, the entrance has moved to the center of the building and there’s a fancy new reception desk as well.
