Anyone who lives in or frequents Long Island City can attest to our lack of retail stores. (We have Matted, which is a frame/accessories store, but that’s about it!) That is why I am particularly excited about the opening of LIC: living, a style and home goods store. The store is curated by two LIC residents, Jillian Tangen and Rebekah Witzke. You will find their taste clearly marked in everything the store has to offer–from dresses to glassware and other home goods. Stop by the store tonight (Friday, Nov. 16) at 6pm for some sparkling wine at their grand-opening celebration, “Bubbles + Bites.” The events continue with a cider and doughnuts day on Saturday, November 17 from 11am-3pm. LIC: living 535 51st Ave. Long Island City, NY 11101 RSVP on their Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/LICliving if you plan to attend, or just stop in!
