This shop gets its name from the historical cottage community the owners once lived in before opening this shop in Greenport in 2011. The shop’s aesthetic is inspired by nature. Think: earthy, aromatic scents of hand poured candles alongside an extensive bath and body collection displayed in elegant amber toned bottles. Additional treasures include old street lamp bulbs recycled into hanging flower vases; driftwood, pebbles and shells repurposed into home décor; and handmade jewelry.
