The Hamptons are full of great shops tucked away in neat little spots. Beachy style for the home and fashion is one of my favorite aesthetics. Here are a few of my favorite shops that range from Sag Harbor to Montauk.
The store Bloom in Sag Harbor is located on Madison Street in a classic Hamptons style house. Mona, the owner, curates a beautiful collection each season. She also features my favorite photographer, Michael Dweck, who captured some of the best photos on the East End.
Clic Gallery is very well known for their fantastic bookstore and gallery in the city. It was founded by Christiane Celle who started one of my favorite destinations for Bohemian Chic clothes, Calypso. Clic Gallery now has a general store outpost on Newtown Street in East Hampton which has a great, eclectic mix of items.
Another favorite is Melet Mercantile in Montauk which is owned by Bob Melet, former head of vintage buying for Ralph Lauren. He has a great selection of antiques and vintage clothing that works perfectly in his Montauk setting.
The Surf Lodge Hotel in Montauk has a great shop called The Surf Bazaar. I absolutely love the colorful array of clothing and accessories. Be sure to grab a drink at the hotel designed by Robert McKinley.
