East Hampton Community Notes, September 19


As you may have heard, the Golden Eagle arts supply store has found a new home. After being in business for more than 10 years at the location on Gingerbread Lane, storeowner Nancy Rowan the had lost her lease, because someone offered more money.

Like anywhere else, there is a major problem with integrity in this small town and people who stand by their word. I found myself in the same situation last year when I had been negotiating a lease for gallery space in Bridgehampton. When I went in to sign the papers, the landlord informed me that someone else stepped up and offered more money, so I did not get the lease. I really do not know how people live with themselves. I have to laugh when one complains about the city people. The locals are not much better.

Anyway, the new location will be on Newtown Lane right next to the UPS Store with, hopefully, an opening date of October 1. The space is smaller than the location on Gingerbread Lane so I am not sure if there will be classes. But, the ladies at the store are super creative and something good will definitely come from this move. Good luck, Nancy.
