Visions for Vacancies: Lealand Eve

Patch asks residents what type of business would be a good fit for this vacant storefront on South Main Street, Sayville.

Lealand Eve of Sayville went out of business at its 52 South Main St. location several months ago.

Lealand Eve was a specialty boutique owned by a young Bellport couple that carried beautiful work by individual artisans, such as home and fashion accessories and jewelry. An artist herself, Lealand integrated gallery space into the boutique. The space featured revolving exhibits by local emerging artists as well as the work of Lealand Eve, which was often inspired by fairytales, carnivals and Coney Island.

The cool blue and white color staples, whimsical decor and unique items weren't enough to keep the store in business. Lealand Eve's experience on South Main Street was short-lived.

As only one of several vacant storefronts in the downtown Sayville area, Patch would like to know what our readers envision for the space once occupied by Lealand Eve.

So tell us, what vision do you have for this vacant space up for rent- a spa, restaurant, or other speciality store? Let us know what you think in the comments.

For more information, call  realtor Sue Byrnes at (631) 806-7456.

A family deli such as that of the old Pauls Deli that was one of the original Sayville businesses back in the 60s and 70s.

A shoe or clothing store that sells moderately prices casual items.

There are so many young musicians in Sayville. A vintage music store would be fun. vInyl records and vintage music paraphernaila. We already have so many spas and restaurants. A book store is a great idea too.

Internet cafe that sells gourmet coffee, has an "old fashion" book trade (take a book / leave a book), open mic night, etc.

Another idea is a high quality art supply store like Utrecht or Dick Blick - one that caters to artists, not crafts people, and sells oil primed linen canvases, transfer paper and other needed supplies unavailable at Michael's (which just doesn't cut it).
