One of our favorite things to do in the summer is to go out east. Which means visiting our friends who have a house in the Hamptons and hanging out at our favorite bed and breakfast at Seatuck. On our way back and forth we always stop in Sag Harbor.
They had a terrible fire that destroyed a couple of buildings on the main drag including the movie theater and the wife's favorite consignment shop. This joint has a bunch of stuff that celebrities sell like Chanel and Prada bags that have never been used. They get them in swag bags and then sell them. Still pricey but not what pay bust out retail. The lady that owns it was very nice and was formerly a garmento like us so we have a lot of stories to tell when we visit.
From the story from the NY Post:
A raging fire ripped through Sag Harbor’s Main Street early Friday morning, gutting several buildings, including a historic cinema built in the 1930s.
“We are all sad,” said longtime resident Jack Tagliasacchi, who’s lived in Sag Harbor since 1963 and owns an Italian restaurant in town.
“It’s really terrible. We lost the theater, which was a landmark.”
Firefighters from at least 13 departments endured strong winds and frigid temperatures to battle the fire, which broke out on a deck behind a coffee shop around 6:15 a.m., a spokesperson for the Sag Harbor Fire Department said.
It then spread to a real estate office and into the Sag Harbor Cinema, a historic treasure that was put on the market for $14 million in January.
This is just a shame. I have been in every one of those stores and I feel for the small businessmen who run. Sure they have a lot of dough relatively speaking by they are still trying to eek out a living.
Merry Christmas eh?
