Last week I had the pleasure of meeting up with Ovidio Teja, owner of Kitchen Plus More, a shop carrying housewares and hardware in one place. It’s a pretty great addition to the LIC retail scene, since some serious one-stop home repair/improvement/maintenance action can happen there. They carry everything from coffee makers of all kinds to hammers, pots and pans to pillows, spatulas to screws, and much more.

Ovidio has worked with Food Bazaar for many years and is bringing his expertise to this smaller shop across the street. He strives to fill his shop with quality items at an affordable prices, and I think he has managed to accomplish this goal. Things you might have gone to Target or The Container Store for can be found in his independently owned shop.

He is dedicated to the neighborhood and used local vendors/businesses in putting together the physical store, which just amplifies his love of local. Here are some shots from the interior which I hope will help you get a picture of what to expect. He hopes to open in a couple of weeks.

Various wooden bowls.

Hooray for key cutting! Seriously, you can’t have too many places that cut keys.

Our organization is to help children/families that need our help. We have been doing fundraising so we can get them the things that they need. We know that these children and their families are in need so we have been doing fundraiser for them for the last three years.

Our fundraiser this year is a Beach Party on August 1, 2015 at Lido Beach 235 Lido Blvd Lido Beach, NY 11561 so all family members can join in the fun. Our fundraiser this year is to help The INN a nonprofit agency based in Hempstead that addresses the issues of hunger and homelessness here on Long Island.

We realize we cannot thank every person individually as there are so many people who we know and don’t know, but all the same heartfelt thanks for the donations, help and supports that you all have shown. We are truly blessed to have all of you in our lives.
