laurie scheinman, veteran family therapist, redefines the meaning of “retail therapy” with her fresh new concept shop she aptly names, wit & whim. the cleverly edited collection is housed in a recently restored, 1885 hallmark home along the waterfront town of port washington, ny. it is a whimsical place to stop, shop and play.

wit & whim is a treasure house filled with curiosities for people of all ages. scheinman’s eclectic style mixes vintage, contemporary, americana and global goods. one added twist…wit & whim is committed to donating 100% of it’s profits to organizations that benefit individuals, communities and our world. it’s an original way to gift and give back!

“i’ve spent my career connecting with people,” says scheinman.
“wit & whim takes that connection to a new level–one that is visual, tactile and hopefully fun. my goal is to create a home setting with a relaxed atmosphere where shoppers can treat themselves, and others, to an international selection of art, design, craft and fashion.”

a place to stop. a place to shop. a place to gift & give back.
