How about matching Keds for the whole family to wear as they walk into summer’s sunset? American’s first sneaker can span the transition from sandals to boots. That journey begins with one step—in Keds.

You may have noticed that people are still leaving donations on the steps of the former Dominican Sisters Thrift Store on Washington Street in Sag Harbor. Is it inattention or a subtle form of protest at the loss of the village’s only second-hand store? Probably a mixture of both. The Sag Harbor Chamber says that Henry Lehr, the high-end men’s clothing chain, is moving into the space from its current spot on Washington Street. The old bank across the street is rapidly becoming a new, high-tech Chase Bank. Greenport also recently said farewell to its Dominican Sisters store. Changing times.
