It’s summertime, when the living is easy, so why rush across Shelter Island just to get in line for the ferry? Be sure to do some island shopping at the sumptuous new home accessories store Shelter Ego. Inside the freshly designed space, which is whimsically tented to resemble a cutting-edge souk, the store’s French, Swedish and Polish owners offer an artful selection of glass, wood and ceramic objects, among other wares.
