Three Southold shops expanded this year in downtown Southold.
White Flower Farmhouse opened a second location just across the street in the building that formerly was home to Ye Old Party Shoppe. White Flower, focused on all things garden and outdoor living, is a partnership between White Flower Farmhouse’s Lori Guyer and floral designer Nathaniel Savage, who launched his own company, Navanel, last year.
The expansion allows Guyer to indulge in all of her vintage garden finds and also spotlights Savage’s beautiful floral creations. Dried and fresh flowers are sold alongside candles, flower pots, plant markets, seed packets, macrame plant hangers, tote bags and other items. White Flower is located at 53850 Main Road, Southold.
touchGOODS also expanded its footprint in 2022 taking over the adjoining space that for years was occupied by Complement the Chef. In the new space, Norine Pennacchia has expanded her offerings, reenvisioning the new touchGOODS as a one-stop shop for your home with a curated selection of bedding, cookware, dinner, glassware, linens and cleaning items. And as a nod to Complement the Chef, she continued stocking kitchen tools. touchGOODS is located at 53740 Main Road, Southold.
But that’s not all. Fez & Ivy also took on more space this year.
When Laura O’Brien opened Fez & Ivy in 2019, she maximized the space in her narrow shop to showcase a chic selection of antiques, rugs, furniture, home accessories and gifts.
In the three years since, she’s quickly outgrown the space and recently pursued an opportunity to expand her Main Road storefront when a hair salon next door shut down earlier this year.
The new space doubled the shop’s footprint and allowed O’Brien to broaden her range of offerings. “Now, I feel like I can have bigger pieces of furniture and spread out the rugs,” she explained, in addition to stocking textiles, antique and vintage glassware, art, note cards, soap, candles, jewelry and other gift items. Fez & Ivy is located at 53800 Main Road in Southold.
