So Vintage Brings New Life To Old Finds

So Vintage, on School Street in Glen Cove, has been giving Glen Cove a taste of the vintage lifestyle since mid-November of last year. They specialize in refurbishing Art Deco, mid-century modern, and industrial furnishings, lightings and accessories.

 

Patricia Holman and Jack Ricotta, co-owners of the store, gained an interest in these vintage items when Holman started refurbishing pieces from the 1890s.

 

“I’ve always loved antiques,” Holman said. “I started when I refurbished a piece [of furniture] from the 1890s. It showed me what I was capable of doing.”

 

Holman and Ricotta both visit antique markets in the Northeast in search of items to refurbish.

 

“Everything we purchase is something that we’ve already been drawn to,” Holman said. “The fun thing about this store is that I can buy everything that I love and actually own it for a short time.”

 

Holman enjoys putting creative spins on many of her vintage finds. She has restored, repainted and refurbished everything from a 1930s chase lounge to a mid-modern bar.

 

“I enjoy the feeling of how I get up and walk through and something hits me with what I want to do with the piece,” Holman said. 

 

Aside from refurbishing, Holman paints Art Deco lights based on paintings and books from a certain time period. 

 

“The light painting is from something that has inspired me from history,” Holman said. “I enjoy each one as I’m ready to create them.”

 

So Vintage also stores and remodels furs for the winter season. The furs are stored in an ice-cold vault owned by Dimitri Furs. Holman works one-on-one with the customer in restoring and remodeling the fur so that it can be ready for the winter season. So Vintage is hoping to start special events with Dimitri Furs in the future.

 

So Vintage also offers design consulting and estate sales. For more information, contact Holman or Ricotta at 516-399-2200, visit the store or their website www.sovintageinc.com. 


News

Glen Cove residents may see a 1.64 percent increase in the tax levy next year, the amount proposed at last week’s public hearing. Mayor Reginald Spinello and the Glen Cove City Council held an initial reading of the proposed budget for 2015, and will take final vote on Tuesday, Oct. 28, at the next city council meeting.

 

“It’s very easy for a first time mayor to raise the taxes and blame it on a prior administration, and that is not what I am doing,” said Mayor Spinello. “In the past three administrations there were budgets with increases of  almost 28 percent to down to 12 percent, but it’s a different time now...I think that the residents are certainly going to feel relief. I put together a budget...that I believe is fair and reasonable and a good budget.”

Richie Cannata may be best known for his song credits but his name will become a part of history this week. Cannata, a 28-year resident and business owner of Glen Cove, will be inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame on Thursday, Oct. 23 at The Paramount in Huntington.

 

As a member of the Billy Joel Band, the saxophone player was propelled to fame in 1975 when he joined the band and played on songs including “New York State of Mind” and “Scenes from an Italian Restaurant.”
