Supervisor Romaine Encourages Shoppers to Support Small Business Saturday on November 24th 257

Town of Brookhaven Supervisor Ed Romaine is asking that Brookhaven residents participate in Small Business Saturday on November 24 by shopping at local small businesses across Brookhaven Town. The Chambers of Commerce are joining together to support this initiative which was founded in 2010 by American Express in partnership with the non-profit National Trust for Historic Preservation, Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino, and Roslindale Village Main Street.  

It is celebrated every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Many of the local businesses in Brookhaven Town are having special sales and promotions to celebrate the event.

Supervisor Ed Romaine said, “Small, local businesses are the backbone of our economy in Brookhaven Town and throughout the country. I encourage everyone to take a break from online shopping, the big boxes and the mall to shop in the stores that are owned by your neighbors. It’s important that we support these businesses that serve our community and create thousands of jobs for our residents.”

Patchogue Welcomes Amulet Arts 395

We were thrilled to be a part of the Official Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Grand Opening Celebration for Amulet Arts on June 8th.  You can tell as soon as you walk through the door that details are important to owners Michael Cappel and Mandolynne Hopkins.  Every inch of the newly opened shop is designed to create an inspiring experience.  It is truly a unique and elegant boutique.  A family owned and operated shop, with more than 30 years in the industry, Amulet Arts offers piercing, jewelry installation services, microblading and fine jewelry.  Proud members of The Association of Professional Piercers, their staff offers the most current, hygienic and professional services to their clients.  They are one of the most highly credentialed and certified piercing/body art studios in New York State.

Although concerned at first about how they might be received, Mr. Cappel got emotional yesterday when asked about their experience opening in Patchogue.  “I have to tell you that Patchogue welcomed us with open arms, and I could not be more grateful to you guys”.

In addition to body art, Amulet Arts also has an amazing gallery where artists are able to showcase their work.  We met two local artists, Mary Searles (@calicoqueen) and Christie Jones (@swellanchor), who both had several pieces of their work on display. and were thrilled with the space and opportunity Amulet provided.  Make sure to check out their instagram accounts for more of their work.
