The Blue Bungalow
This spacious shop has two floors of home decor, beachy gifts and treats for the eye everywhere. Own ers Liz Smith-Breslin and Jeanne Jamin, both "hometown girls," tear through the markets and shows, shopping for unique and affordable gifts that all Rockawayites can enjoy. You can find Liz on a photo shoot with clients on location or on the beach creating her beach writings that are so unique to The Blue Bungalow, while Jeanne's at home painting furniture or framing a mirror or piece of artwork. This holiday season look for Blue Bungalow House Parties, or art fairs. Liz's annual Shop ping Extravaganza will be held at the Blue Bun - galow on Thursday night, December 3, from 7-11 p.m. It will be a Red Carpet event at which Blue Bungalow will introduce other great vendors from the neighborhood and where they will be offering great holiday discounts. All of this makes the store, and the services it offers, one of a kind.
Liz says, "I look around and see so many beautiful things. I think I am on a vacation. It takes me a second to smile and say, this is our hometown. Thank God! Come on in!"
The staff is friendly, experienced and will assist you with the perfect gift for your loved ones. "You won't get that at the mall," she adds.
"No driving. No traffic. No gas or tolls. The Blue Bun - galow is the perfect destination for your holiday shopping."
