This is 3

This is 3. It is hard to believe that we launched Ryland Life Equipment three years ago. It feels like just yesterday that I was frantically setting up the store and the website in time for our first weekend in March of 2019. When we first opened at our former location on Madison Street there was so much nervousness and excitement all wrapped up in one. Would people find us? Would they like the assortment? Can I pull this off? Fast forward three years and the business has grown and changed in many ways that are beyond what I had dreamed of. Never has the old saying  “Necessity is the mother of all invention” been truer! Owning a small business...

Ryland Life Equipment: 155 Main St. History

There’s nothing we love more than an interesting story, so it comes as no surprise that our new location at 155 Main Street in Sag Harbor is rich in history, real and local lore alike, that dates all the way back to the 1700s. Today, what is known as The Stanton House was actually the location of The Hand House until 1840 when it was moved to its present location of Church Street.  Built in 1840, The Stanton House is tucked right behind the Soldiers’ Monument on the corner of Madison and Main. This two-story Greek Revival Treasure serves as a window to Sag Harbor’s past with it’s lacy gingerbread Victorian porch, delicate triangular windows, and a striking front doorway....

Two Year Anniversary

Ryland Life Equipment was started two years ago with the idea of bringing a sophisticated take on a modern-day men’s store. There was a void in the marketplace for curated mens’ boutiques in a place where women have so many options but men do not. On this idea, I wanted to bring in a product that had an interesting story and providence.  Our first year was a whirlwind and we have so many friends, team members, brand partners and customers to be thankful for. When we approached our one year anniversary we were faced with very tough challenges and decisions for any business, let alone a small business. The novel virus forced us to temporarily shut our doors for an...
