Out of the Closet
720 Montauk Hwy. Water Mill, NY 631-537-2470
Rare Victorian era to '80s clothing, shoes, accessories and hats. The ultraclean, carefully curated store could double as an art gallery. Co-owners Lucy Martin and Ruth Chernaik count Sarah Jessica Parker, Rachel Zoe and Betsey Johnson as clients. Check out the backroom with ball gowns and eclectic '70s jumpers. Vintage items are cleaned and restored by an in-store seamstress. "We call ourselves rescuers," Martin says.
