As the summer season winds down (and the crowds disperse), it's an opportune time to take a trip to the Hamptons to investigate the shops. Sag Harbor store Bloom is always my first stop; owner Mona Nerenberg has an unerring eye, and her impeccably styled merchandise includes a mix of antiques and newer pieces (including our favorite linens line from Society Limonta). A favorite recent find: bamboo and willow woven chairs from Belgium (shown below). Bloom is located at 43 Madison Street in Sag Harbor, NY (631-725-5940).
