Did you know that the historic East Hampton Sea Spray Inn was Big Edie's go-to spot? Situated right on the ocean the Sea Spray was a very popular bohemian place to hang out. While sitting at the famed Inn, Big Edie would enjoy lobster, complete with the piano playing in the background, while gazing at the sea. Could it be that she picked up her famous catch-phrase, "Oceans of Happiness," while lounging at the Sea Spray?
The Sea Spray Inn goes way back, in the '70s there was a restaurant and bar complete with wicker-furnished sun porches that became an extension of the bar. As one of the "Original Bohemians" in East Hampton, Big Edie loved to get away from it all by enjoying the eclectic hidden gems of her time, such as this place. With the likes of Andy Warhol and Peter Beard, Big Edie fit right in. What we wouldn't give to go back in time and be part of that scene. Wouldn't you agree?
Inspired by the Sea Spray Inn and the very mantra of "Oceans of Happiness," we created the Grey Gardens "Sea Spray" Canvas Tote. Check out our latest piece to learn more.
