Made in the Shade
    Eleni Preston, a longtime Sag Harbor resident, designer, and goldsmith, has opened a new store in East Hampton. Made, tucked comfortably into its spot on Race Lane, is, according to a release, “a fusion of studio, gallery, and retail, celebrating the work of artisans with a passion for what they make.”
    The store will sell items both functional and beautiful, original and reclaimed, from around the world. There are household and personal items, and the store also boasts vintage finds “imbued with personality.” Exploration and experiment, said the release, means the wares will be ever changing.
