10 Shopping Days Left: New Local-Run Web Store Offers Vintage Items

Robin's Roost is brand-new online shop run by a Bayport resident.

If you haven't discovered the perfect gift yet Patch wants to make sure you do and will be spotlighting ideas at local businesses every day until Dec. 25 between Blue Point and West Sayville.

Today Patch spotlights Robin’s Roost Vintage, a web shopping site run by a lifelong Bayport resident that features very unique accessories, home décor and other extraordinary finds.

Elizabeth Plotz, 28, launched the shop at the start of November though the Bayport-Blue Point graduate of 2002 has been selling goods online for over a decade.

She scours estate and garage sales for unique items and does purchase certain vintage items from private sellers.

Plotz is hoping to open a brick and mortar location in Sayville in the next year.

“Meanwhile I am continuing to build my inventory which stretches far beyond what is listed in my online shop. My store will include vintage and refinished/upcycled furniture as well as a broader array of not only vintage home decor and housewares, but newer items as well,” Plotz told Patch in an email.

“Think Pottery Barn or Crate & Barrel, but on a budget. Everything will be affordable.”

Plotz said the business combines her love for interior decorating and vintage with her expertise in reselling.

“I feel that Sayville will be a perfect fit for my store as Main Street already has so many lovely shops, including antique and vintage stores, but none are exactly like what I am doing.”

And if you find what you like at her online shop and you're local, you don't have to worry about shipping as local pick-up is available.
