Rosie's Handmade Revolution brings Etsy Nation to Bellport, New York

The opening of Rosie's Handmade Revolution in Bellport this past weekend was cause for celebration for a couple of particular reasons one of which is that Bellport finally has a hip store that has a great collection of affordable, hip and handmade clothing.

Second and of particular interest to us is the small, but nicely put together selection of high end desserts and teas from hipster bakeries like Whimsy and Spice and Cafe Portofino in Northport, NY. We particularly liked Whimsy's delicate, scalloped Honey Lavender offering which Lynn thought had a taste of Provence; a perfect compliment to one of Rosie's teas.
Lynn was also particularly fond of the Hazelnut Chocolate Whiskey Cookies from the Brooklyn Confectioner. Here, Lynn detected a nice pairing of whiskey flavor with a creamy hazlenut ganache in the center of the confection.Lynn also loved Cafe Portofino's lemon bars made with fresh lemon curd. To round this out, we also loved the truffles from the Calabass Candy Company. (for more about the store see our other post from today's date).
