Located in the beautiful town of Port Jefferson Village, on the trendy and charming East Main Street, Breathe is one of those stores that makes you want to spend an hour browsing and exploring unique items you’d have a hard time finding anywhere else local. It’s an eclectic new age shop with everything from candles to healing stones, jewelry to statues, Buddhas to lip balms and a lot more. At night they offer workshops, reiki circles and meditation. Recently I got to chat with Jena, the friendly owner.
