Photo by Julie Lane | Paspartou is a new retailer on Washington Street, directly across from the Chequit Inn on Shelter Island. It’s owned by former Shelter Ego operator Gosia Regek. Shown are some of the items available at the shop.

Come celebrate the holidays a little bit early this year as you shop for family, friends, or just yourself.

PasParTou, an artisanal gift shop in Greenport, will host a Holiday Sip & Shop event on Saturday, Nov. 21.

Beginning at 11 a.m. and all through the day shoppers can enjoy libations and snacks as they shop the store, which specializes in an eclectic collection of European houseware goods like pottery, linens, handmade jewelry, furniture and sailing paraphenalia. There will also be pre-holiday discounts offered, as well as door prizes and raffles.

Owner Gosia Rojek, who is a native of Poland, collects all of the store’s items and artifacts during her several trips abroad each year, then brings them back to sell here in the U.S.  This is her second shop, as the original Paspartou opened in Brooklyn several years ago. Rojek now spends her time at both stores.

PasparTou is located at 10 Front Street in Greenport. For more information call (631) 749-5888 or visit
