Boutiques and a Barber Shop: Your 2019 Fire Island Pines Shopping Guide

Shut up and take our money.

Between teas, pool parties, Showtune Sundays, and drag shows, there’s a lot to keep you busy during your stay in the Pines on Fire Island. Now you can add shopping to that list—and no, not just grabbing a Shero at Pines Pantry or a handle of vodka at the Pines Liquor Store.

Thanks to Steven Giles, founder and creative director of BASE USA and BASE Project, the “long-standing beach destination for the LGBTQ community will offer a cohesive and creative vision of limited-edition and first-time-to-retail brands to the retail curious Fire Island Pines consumer—homeowners and weekend visitors, alike.”

Check out the shopping guide below from cute new stores you can peruse while waiting for Low Tea to get swinging. See ya on the ferry!

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
