        After the surprising and unwelcome discovery in June that their lease at 14 Gingerbread Lane in East Hampton would not be renewed, Nancy and Tom Rowan, owners of the Golden Eagle, embarked on a search for a new location. Meanwhile, patrons of the local institution mourned the imminent loss of their go-to provider of fine art supplies, children’s art supplies and toys, and fun and unusual gifts. After a 30, then 50, then 75-percent-off sale, the store on Gingerbread Lane closed in mid-September.
