At the Whalebone

The Whalebone General Store in Noyac, Sag Harbor is the hub of the neighborhood. It is where to go for the morning newspapers, lottery tickets, birthday cards, toys, and gifts, many locally produced. The huge candy counter is a destination point for sugar deprived children on the way home from a day at the beach. The store's selections change to satisfy seasonal desires. The Whalebone is also the place to get all of the latest neighborhood news. I say news, not gossip (wink). Just recently, Linda and George Heine have expanded the locally sourced artisanal products to include fine art by local artists.
You may be familiar with some of the artists.
