The ocean has long enchanted mankind with its mysterious depths, exotic sealife, and skill at squeezing into shells it donned during college. Bring the briny deep to your abode with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of jewelry, art, and accessories at The Blue Bungalow in Rockaway.
The Blue Bungalow's white-washed brick walls and ocean-themed interior peacefully house handmade art, refinished antiques, and vintage accessories. Dozens of items on display are fashioned by owners Liz and Jeanne, such as wall-gracing beach writings (priced after consultation) bearing thoughtful messages. Browse seaside-inspired décor and knickknacks, from 1920s-inspired bathing beauties ($24 each) to blue distressed frames ($38 each), holding starfish and sand dollars as snugly as an overgrown hermit crab's house. A chic turquoise starfish-encrusted bracelet ($30) adds flair to arm wrestling, and a pair of medium shell earrings ($32) evokes a vacation vibe to keep earlobes from going on strike.
