Maritime Must Haves

By Rachel Bosworth - September 5, 2019

In the spirit of Greenport’s 30th annual Maritime Festival, we’re getting our nautical design on. For you and the home, these local products are perfect for seafaring folk and landlubbers alike.

FUNCTIONAL ART

Inspired by her love of color, North Fork artist Melissa Hyatt painted a blue claw crab, capturing him in all of his glory. This watercolor piece has been printed on eco canvas fabric, making this pillow cover a natural addition for coastal-inspired living spaces.

IT’S A SIGN

In addition to sweets and chocolates stocking the shelves of Love Lane Sweet Shoppe in Mattituck, seasonal cute and kitschy items make for great gifts. This customizable wooden sign reminds us that beach days on the North Fork are a gentle way of life.

BRETON STRIPES

One can’t talk about maritime history without looking to Preston’s Chandlery in Greenport. Since 1880 they have served the boating community, outfitting every type of craft from rowboats to yachts. The wool Breton stripe scarf gives a classic nautical look to keep you cozy on high seas or on land in cooler weather.

DRIFTWOOD INSPIRED

This hand crafted, delicate garland necklace from Metal Monk in Greenport features individually painted or patina, stacked and layered creating a dimensional look. Part of the Driftwood collection, it is inspired by the neutral colors of the local, coastal landscape.
