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.

How long have you been in business?

It will be eight years this August.

What made you choose the name Breathe?

When my dad used to see me stressed, he’d tell me not to sweat the small stuff, breathe really does translate to that.

Finding Inspiration in Disappointment

After working in the corporate world for 15 years, Nancy found inspiration after receiving a disappointing baby product after the birth of her daughter. Calling upon the entrepreneurial spirit instilled in Nancy by her parents she started AllBaby.com.

Sharing The Spotlight

My baby boy is due in a month. Of course, I’m worrying about the little guy’s health, labor and delivery, and how I’m going to lose my baby weight. But I also can’t stop wondering how my daughter is going to adjust to sharing the spotlight.
