Back in the day, the general store was a staple, but that species is virtually extinct. Which got Bruce and Susan Jackey to thinking, wouldn't it be nice to have a beach town shop with a little of this and a little of that? The year-round Westhampton residents just opened their take on the modern general store that offers, well, a little bit of everything. Susan, who is a retail and design executive, has scoured the marketplace for unique merchandise with a special bent toward American-made products. There are housewares ranging from unusual candles to pottery to flatware and a small section devoted to dogs offering fun collars and leads. You can buy whimsical cards and bulk ribbon here, and sweet-tooth types will be sated with taffy sold out of glass jars, along with some fine cookies and cakes by local bakers. For kids, find small handmade toys, as well as some simple clothes."It's stuff you just don't see everywhere," says Bruce.
