The Dusty Attic Shop Announces the Grand Opening of Port Jefferson NY Retail Shop
The Dusty Attic Shop, a collection of artist inspired, handmade, up cycled home décor, furnishings and accessories, has announced the grand opening of its retail shop located at 98 Main Street, Port Jefferson NY.
June 19th, 2014
The Dusty Attic Shop is the vision of shop owners Lori Sampson & Sal Belkin in finding unique pieces of home décor and furniture that is hand crafted and created by artist around the world. The idea was conceived out of the shop owner’s frustration to find home décor that isn’t mass produced and you won’t find in your neighbor’s home.
“As a home owner who liked to change out her pieces in her home often, I couldn’t find unique pieces that weren’t expensive for the home. I was forced to shop in the big box stores where everyone else was shopping. So, you would go to a friend’s home and they would have the same thing you just purchased on their wall in their home. It was very frustrating to me to find something that only I had, so I knew if I was looking for this other people must be too, so we decided to fulfill the need in the home décor market.”
The Dusty Attic acts as the vehicle for the conscious consumer by providing high quality, artist inspired work and upcycled/recycled pieces for the home. Socially conscious of bringing the old pieces back to life again.
The grand opening party was hosted on June 19th, 2014 by shop owners where our family & friends both old and new came to join us. The Port Jefferson Chamber of Commerce members joined the Dusty Attic family with Suzanne Velazquez, President of the Chamber, Mary Joe Pipe, 3rd Vice President of the Chamber, Maryanne Douglas, Treasurer of the Chamber, Michael Sceiford, Director of the Chamber Leah Dunalef, Director of the Chamber, Marites (Tess) Son, Director of the Chamber. It was a huge success for us and to be so welcomed into the community. We look forward to many years with the shop and being here for our clients.
