The owners of Laurel’s In the Attic Too have salvaged so many antiques and reclaimed materials over the years that they’re opening a second location in Jamesport this weekend.
Situated in a 1,400-square-foot red barn behind Duffy’s Deli on Main Road, In the Attic Too’s second location will open at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 11. The barn is the former longtime home of Gloria’s Antiques.
“All the stuff we’re going to be selling in Jamesport we already sell in Laurel,” said Dan McCallister of East Quogue, who co-owns In the Attic Too with his wife, Susan. “We just have so much of it that we decided to expand somewhere people can see it all.”
Specializing in what McCallister called “architectural salvage,” In the Attic Too sells reclaimed and repurposed materials and vintage and customized furniture. The couple purchases most of their merchandise from clients who are cleaning out their houses and they salvage wood when local barns and garages are torn down.
McCallister, a former Southampton Town police officer who opened In the Attic Too in 2009 on Franklinville Road in Laurel, said he enjoys giving old furniture and materials a “new life.”
“It’s the creativity, the sense of accomplishment,” he said.
In the Attic Too’s new Jamesport location will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. beginning tomorrow. After that, it will be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. In the Attic Too’s Laurel location is open Thursday through Monday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Check them out on Facebook for more details.
