Sophisticated Scraps

GRAYTON BEACH — Sophisticated Scraps is not your average antique store.

The eclectic shop offers its patrons antique linens, century-old post cards and niche pieces dating back 60 years and it was all a part of the owner's collection.

"There‘s no other place where you can get everything that we offer," said Mathew Lasing, operations manager of the shop. "This is a place to get unique gift items and collectibles."

Lasing said he and his mother have made a hobby of antiquing and last year when he found more time on his hands he decided to sort through some of the dozens of bins they had filled over the years.

That‘s when the pair decided to open up a shop selling their collections. Now, they offer their customers antique buttons, quilts, toys and dozens of other items along with a select few items from retailers.

The shop is filled with items in every corner from the bed covered in antique linens and blankets to the center island with drawers of Lasing's unique finds.
