Pop-up retail shops featuring everything from clothing to fresh flowers have sprung up everywhere in the Hamptons for summer — with the store ownership reflecting quite the range as well — from Hollywood’s Gwyneth Paltrow and designer Cynthia Rowley to London’s White Company founder Chrissie Rucker.
Here’s a sampling of what's around — for now.

There's also Paula Torres handmade shoes with styles “representing all the activities of a chic Hampton’s woman” and shoes by Andrew Stevens – “designed with resort and leisure in mind.”

GOOP MRKT, SAG HARBOR, 4 BAY ST., SAG HARBOR
“There are the hallmarks of summer: that first sip of icy sangria, that first bite of grilled sweet corn, that first step into our Hamptons pop-up …” — that’s what the Goop website says about its pop-up shop in Sag Harbor, which is returning for the second year in a row. Goop, an extension of actress Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle brand and website, goop.com, looks like a quaint house from the outside but inside is a bright and airy general store — but one with Prada selections, of course. The shop will host in-store events — this month's programming including tarot readings and an anti-aging master class.
