With just two weekends left before Labor Day, a trio of friends are testing their idea for a make-up salon, setting up shop in Water Mill.
Made opened last weekend in the Water Mill Shoppes, and the pop-up shop will be opened in the former Water Mill Cupcake Store just through Labor Day.
"We jumped on an opportunity," Tracy Parsons, one of the owners, said. "It's a quick adventure" to get their feet wet before opening their first store.
Parsons and her business partners Ana Lubar and Nicole Holbrook have been friends for 11 years, since meeting at Bucknell University. They are preparing to open their flagship store in the Flatiron District in New York City in early 2014.
From North Fork:
Customers hankering for something sweet and cold now have a delicious new choice in Mattituck: A new hand-dipped, hard serve frozen yogurt and ice cream bar has opened at Yogurt Expressions, located at 13175 Main Road.
"Now customers can get ice cream, as well," owner Susan Orioli said. "We have many exciting and new frozen yogurt and ice cream flavors."
For Thaddeus Hill, executive director of the Timothy Hill Children's Ranch in Riverhead, the opening of a new girls' home this week on Sound Avenue is the answer to a long-held dream.
"I'm ecstatic," he said.
The new home opened this week as two girls moved in Monday; the house has room for four girls in total.
