Known as the oldest artist supplier in the Hamptons, The Golden Eagle in East Hampton will return at a new location starting this Friday, October 18. On Wednesday morning the store released two photos on Facebook previewing its new space at 79 Newtown Lane (pictured above), and it looks as good as ever.
In July, the Golden Eagle announced that its landlord was forcing the store to shut its doors and allow a new tenant to take over. Following weeks of clearance sales, the shop finally closed its doors on September 24, but it rebounded quickly and is now ready to open after less than a month of hard work and preparation.
Located directly across from the East Hampton Middle School, next to the UPS Store, the new Golden Eagle will feature the supplies and gifts local artists, hobbyists and children have enjoyed buying there. The store has also been a place for area artists to show their work in rotating exhibitions, as well as offering local crafts and a variety of art workshops for adults and children. Unfortunately there is no longer room for classes, but the exhibitions will likely continue.
The Golden Eagle’s official reopening is this Friday, October 18 at 10 a.m. Fall hours will be: Monday – Saturday 10 a.m. – 5:30 p.m., and Sundays noon – 4 p.m. They still have the same phone number (631-324-0603) and website goldeneagleart.com.
Make sure to check out The Golden Eagle’s regularly updated Facebook page for news and developments as they settle in the new space.
NOTE: If what we’re hearing is true, just wait till you see who’s taking over The Golden Eagle’s former store at 14 Gingerbread Lane…
