|The future home of Home Goods in Wainscott.|
In case you haven't been paying attention, there's been a lot of complaining about the new Home Goods Store currently under construction in Wainscott. The building has been criticized for everything from being too close to the road to out of character for the Hamptons! Really people? Really? It has cedar shingles, dormers and is no bigger than some guest cottages here on the east end. It's also alot better looking than the old Plitt Ford car dealership. So why all the fuss?!!! Well I guess some people here in the Hamptons have nothing else better to do. So, that's I'm here to put some of these Debbie and Donald Downers in line. Besides, if you people stop the new Home Goods from coming to town, where else will I be able to buy an irregular coffee table, brand new Patrick Nagel prints or discontinued Isaac Mizrahi soap dishes? In fact, there are bigger ugly fish to fry. So, how about doing something with these local eyesores?

Holy creepazoids Batman, how come nobody is complaining about this seasoned greeting in Wainscott? Is it the pale complexion? Is it the beady eyes or the gaping open mouth that I find so odd? I'm frightened every time I drive by! This Santa looks like he's an advertisement for Jerry Sandusky's Christmas Kayaking adventure Camp. I have nothing against Main Beach surf shop, Kayaks or even Santa but that mannequin is scarier than H-E-Double hockey sticks!! There has to be a friendlier looking figure to go into this boat ? What about a real guy in Santa outfit or simplify with some holiday lights on a kayak without anybody on board?

Time to wrap this up. Other than the simple fear of an unintended drive through, the building is attractive and done by a group of professionals who in my opinion did a good job of keeping within the area's aesthetic. The business will bring jobs to the area and help a lot of residents pull a home together on a tight budget. Let's not waste our breath complaining about what is essentially a nice building that will help the community while there are empty shelves at the food pantries and actual homeless folks on the street! Happy Holidays and remember you are lucky and blessed you live in one of the most beautiful places on earth!
