Fall continues to be all about change. Settling into a slower pace, my senses are awakened. The water of Shinnecock Bay seems a brighter blue, the village green even seems greener. Biting into a crisp apple hand-picked from a farm on the North Fork amidst the aromas of cinnamon-cider donuts and roasted corn, feeling direct warmth from the sunlight—it’s all heavenly. It’s not surprising that the editorial staff at Dan’s is in search of the perfect PSL (pumpkin spice latte, that is) and the best local pumpkin brew. While no one wanted summer to end, we’re becoming okay with it. Personally, I’m embracing it. It’s a wonderful time of year to stroll through town, PSL in hand, and scope out the sales.
This week, I’m hitting up Southampton. A good place to start for all you sales-savvy shoppers is C. Wonder.

Take a break from all the shopping with a refreshing juice or smoothie from Second Nature Markets, appropriate for that fall cleanse you’ve been thinking of doing. A simple way of starting to bring about good changes is just by opting for nourishing foods.

On your way to checking out the sales up on Hill Street (across from the movie theater), take a peek in Tripoli Gallery and allow yourself to be immersed in the beautiful colors of Eric Freeman’s new paintings.
