Suzie Q here with the Buzz around Stony Brook Village….
I am officially in full swing trying to get all of my holiday shopping done!
I dropped my car off at the new “Penny’s Car Care” located in the Stony Brook Village Gas Station for an overdue oil change and then made my way around my favorite village to get all my tasks done. How convenient! Brian Barton, the owner, found this sign from 1912 in Penney’s Garage in St. James and brought it to Stony Brook. Here are Brian Jr. and Tom (who are amazing by the way).
I’ve discovered that the Educational & Cultural Center’s Gift Shop, located behind Jos. A. Bank, has over 150 amazing items including Stony Brook apparel, Stony Brook signs, local photography, handmade holiday cards, holiday glass mosaics, one of a kind tote bags, and much more! A really unusual piece is a sterling silver bracelet in the shape of Long Island with Sand Street Beach sand in it. I will definitely be stopping back.
I also picked up a few Stony Brook Village Center Gift Certificates. You can use them anywhere in the village – in one or multiple businesses – which I did not know until now! I’m going to give one of them to my Aunt who loves musical theatre performances – and she especially likes Linda Ronstadt and Olivia Newton-John – which is the tribute show running now through January 10.
I needed to treat myself with something sweet so I stopped at Sweet Mama’s for a big ice cream sundae and found out another important piece of information which is that the stores will be open Thursday nights until 8 pm until Christmas Eve!
Happy Holidays to everyone and a very Happy New Year.
