The Museum Shop, 215 Main Street, Northport
History of the Museum Shop
In 1974, shortly after the Society found a home--and museum--in the former Carnegie Library at 215 Main Street, two volunteers were asked to sell a box of used goods that was taking up space. The items were priced at $.25 each, and from that box on the museum’s lobby steps, the Shop was "born." Several years later, with a donation from the Cavagnaro family, an addition was constructed to house the Museum Shop.
Shown below are featured items currently in the Museum Shop inventory. All items are subject to prior sale.
