Shop Rockaway for the Holidays


I can’t go to Rockaway without stopping at my two favorite unique shops, Blue Bungalow and The Gift is Love x5 (see article from last Valentine’s day), both on Beach 116th Street. Swing by on Christmas Eve and help local Rockaway businesses rebuild! The Gift is Love has their trademark “Memories of Rockaway Beach” ornaments featuring the Marine Park Bridge (given to me by my sister this morning as an early Christmas present). Blue Bungalow is having a special “SHOP LOCAL” sale for the holidays. Mention “SHOP LOCAL” at the store and you will receive 50% off all jewelry and 25% off your entire purchase. They also sell the cute sand dollar ornament presently gracing my Christmas tree! Christmas Eve Hours: The Gift is Love 223 Beach 116th Street Rockaway Beach, NY 11694 718-945-4206 9am - 5pm
Blue Bungalow 165 Beach 116th Street Rockaway Beach, NY 11694 718-318-4663 9am - 8pm
