Renee Goldfarb of Bay Shore is preparing to close Origin in Era in Port Jefferson in November.

She’ll be reopening soon in downtown Bay Shore.

“We won’t have vintage in the new space, but we will continue to sell small batch, independent, female-only brands,” she said. “The only thing that will feel new is the building, the shell.”

“Coming back there after all this time is a homecoming for me.”

The location will be announced soon. Follow GreaterBayShore for that news.
