Bird Is Opening a Pop-Up on Shelter Island

bird_shelter_island.jpgThough Shelter Island residents probably feel a little queasy at the thought of thier laid-back weekend community becoming Montauk 2.0 (see these photos of André Balazs playing ping pong with Pippa Middleton at his Shelter Island hotel from last summer), there's one cool addition to the scene that's sure to be welcomed with open arms: Beach Bird. The Brooklyn-based boutique with shops in Williamsburg, Cobble Hill and Park Slope is opening a Shelter Island-friendly version of their 'high fashion-with-an-L Train twist' store. The pop-up will emphasize "easy dresses, pretty jewelry, sandals and swimsuits" over the more conceptual fare found in their city locations, owner Jen Mankins tells us. "I want the store to make sense in the context of its community and being by the beach," she adds. Mankins, who herself has been going out to Shelter Island for over a decade, tells us the store will also carry travel-friendly items like toothbrushes and soap -- though don't expect Dove or Dial. (In this case, it's saltwater soap from Sweden.) Vacation goers can also find hostess gifts like Turkish hamman towels, East African beach blankets, art and design books and hand-dyed ikat pillows.

Beach Bird will be located at 183 North Ferry Road and will be open from June 1 through September 1.
