Island Farmhouse, East Wind Shoppes’ newest boutique at the Inn at East Wind complex in Wading River, opened in February. The boutique specializes in home decor and unique hand-finished furniture with a farmhouse touch.

There’s a line of soy candles from Moore’s Lights & Lather of Mastic, bracelets from Comet Brands of Shirley, photos by Yaphank photographer Anthony Graziano, and My Succulent Shop of East Moriches succulents in a variety of fun jars, including mini ceramic animals and vintage trucks. .
On the clothing side, there’s Coram’s Under the Bleach tie-dyed sweatshirts and Island Farmhouse’s own line of t-shirts, sweatshirts and caps, all made in Wading River.
“Anything that’s not tie-dye is stuff we made ourselves,” says Gillin.
The shop also has many whimsical seasonal items, like Easter items, succulents in bunny pots, festive signs, and stuffed animals.
