The Oysterponds Historical Society (OHS) will host its beloved Beach Plum Holiday Shop over Thanksgiving weekend.

"In the midst of the pandemic, making shopping for holiday items convenient and easy is needed more than ever," Sarah Olmstead, who has for years curated and run the shop, noted.

Located at the OId Point Schoolhouse in Orient, The Beach Plum Holiday Shop will feature a myriad of exceptional items, including decorations, ornaments, North Fork art, traditional crafts, games, and OHS merchandise.

"The Beach Plum Shop has been an OHS tradition for decades and we thought it was very important to continue the tradition this year - especially given the current challenges we all face," Olmstead noted. "The community would no doubt be very disappointed if it wasn't open."

While unfortunately there will not be an Art Show & Sale this year, there will be an "Artist Tree," beautifully embellished with stunning ornaments created and donated by local artists. They will be available to purchase for $10 each. Local artists interested in donating their own festive tree-hangings should contact OHS.

The Beach Plum Holiday Shop will be open on Saturday, November 28 and Sunday, November 29 from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Attendees must don a face mask and follow OHS's social distancing and sanitization protocols.

Proceeds from the seasonal extravaganza directly support the mission of the Oysterponds Historical Society, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that commemorates the North Fork's culture and heritage. Established in 1944, OHS's mission "is to collect, preserve, interpret, and share—through education, exhibitions, and scholarship—the history of the hamlets of Orient and East Marion."

The OId Point Schoolhouse is located at 1555 Village Lane in Orient. For more information, visit oysterpondshistoricalsociety.org.

Southrifty Drug 54 Jagger Lane, Southampton Village
Southrifty Drug is a small, neighborhood pharmacy with limited shelf space, and we have to be very selective about which over-the-counter items we carry. As a result you'll find a no nonsense concentration of very effective, high quality and useful products on our shelves. In this new section, we feature a number of these products that we feel are especially worthy of your consideration.
