Sag Harbor Village mainstay Sylvester & Co. Modern General, a 35-year-old boutique home goods, coffee shop and uniquely contemporary general store located on Main Street, just got a new roommate.

San Francisco-born brand Hudson Grace, a company that specializes in offering a curated selection of housewares, decor and goods geared toward entertaining, recently moved from their former Washington Street storefront just around the corner and will now be sharing the same space as Sylvester’s, operating as what company co-owner Monelle “Mo” Totah calls a “shop within a shop.” Open in the new digs since April 15, there was an official welcome party/all-day shopping event for members of the public last Saturday with Totah on-hand to help kick-off the summer season and showcase her wares in their new home.

“We want to be that place you go to when you need another half dozen linen napkins, or four more wine glasses,” says Totah, who has a background in textiles and (before founding Hudson Grace) worked at Williams Sonoma for the better part of 20 years. “Because odds are, we’ll probably have it. That’s what we’re all about.”

With 10 locations nation-wide, with most clustered in the Bay Area as well as in Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, New York City and Connecticut, Hudson Grace made its east coast debut in Sag Harbor back in the summer of 2020.

Open since 2012 and named after two late dogs individually owned by Totah and her business partner Gary McNatton, Hudson Grace prides itself as being the premier place to grab those super last minute entertaining essentials, offering goods ranging from bedding and garden tools to serveware, barware and scented candles. The “pop-up,” “shop-within-a-shop” will be at Sylvester through the summer.
