If you are in the Hamptons this summer, you must check out the most charming home and garden shop, East Hampton Gardens, tucked away on Gingerbread Lane. East Hampton Gardens offers floral, landscaping, garden designs, and a delightful shop full of one-of-a-kind treasures curated by owner Michael Giannelli.
After 30 years as a retail fashion executive, Michael jumped at the chance to take over East Hampton Gardens when the owners decided to retire. A loyal customer with a lifelong passion for gardening, Michael bought the business and relaunched with a thorough renovation and fresh new perspective in summer 2017. The new East Hampton Gardens still has all of the high quality flowers and plants the store has long been known for, but Michael has broadened the offerings to create an idyllic gardening and entertaining oasis in the heart of East Hampton including a new Flower Shop, professional interior design services, outdoor furniture, garden ornamentation, and an exquisite selection of entertaining, tabletop, gift, and home décor lines—with many brands exclusive to East Hampton Gardens. Longtime established clients include Martha Stewart, Ina Garten, Victoria Hagen, and Charlotte Moss.
East Hampton Gardens has become the go-to place for home and garden aficionados in the Hamptons who adore the “formally informal” sensibility Michael brings to the shop with its French and English garden-style influences. With his husband, interior designer Greg Shano, Michael has resided in the seaside community of East Hampton for more than 20 years, where their beautifully curated Hamptons home impeccably reflects a shared love of gardening and home design… Please check back on Monday, as Michael and Greg will be giving The Glam Pad a special tour of their home! You won’t want to miss!
