Elle and I are quickly learning a lot about the Hamptons: the one most evident thing? It’s crowded! Not only is traffic just always slow moving (I don’t see why the speed limits signs are even there) but the parking lots are crowded with people too, as are the grocery stores. I know the Hamptons are supposed to be an escape from the city (and with beautiful beaches and wonderful nightlife, it certainly is) but enter any of the stores and it’s enough to make two girls from South Carolina feel like we’re in downtown Manhattan.
We’ve had a chance to meet some great people though (unfortunately no celebrities yet.. to my knowledge). One man we met was very Woody Allen-esque exclaimed to us “You two are going to heaven, you know, if there is one!” He had a very cynical wit and similar demeanor. It was quite an enjoyable addition to our day.
We also met a woman who lives in the Hamptons year round. We asked her how it was living with this traffic daily. She filled us in on some secret back roads that will cut more than half of travel time. Thank you very much ma’am, we plan on executing your advice starting tomorrow and wish you wonderful Ciao Bella wishes!
Another couple told us they used to live in the city and loved Ciao Bella so much that when they moved to the Hamptons they actually had the mass packaged products delivered to them so they wouldn’t have to give it up. Needless to say they were happy to learn we were now sold at their local King Kullen and Citarella.
As many people have learned that the trek to the Hamptons is well worth it, we have to say that we agree. Ok, we haven’t experienced the beaches yet or attended any posh parties, but it’s been a pleasure meeting everyone and learning about their vacations or lives there year-round while helping them fall in love with our product. I hear that Renee Zellweger, Nathan Lane and Steven Spielberg also reside in the Hamptons. I know you want your Ciao Bella sample too, don’t hesitate to visit us.
