It would appear our beloved shops are finally coming out of hibernation with tons of hot new places and sales.
Sylvester & Co. has closed their flagship Sag Harbor store for a brief renovation, but their extended winter sale is continuing at the Amagansett location all the way until March 15.

Now is your chance to score the latest trends in home furnishings, apparel, gifts and accessories. The shop is devoted to eco-friendly, sustainable manufacturing. Their merchandise, from side tables to candles and teapots, are simultaneously en vogue and timeless, sourced from quality suppliers around the world.
