OCEAN GROVE, NJ — When it comes to Serenity by the Sea’s vast selection of specialty merchandise, it’s literally raining cats and dogs.

The boutique at 53 Main Avenue in Ocean Grove boasts home textiles and furnishings, as well as trinkets and charms for pet lovers. In addition, shop owner Sarah Taylor Izzo creates her own lines of potholders and hotholders designed from pet-inspired fabrics, as well as tutus for your pooch or kitty.

At Serenity by the Sea, it’s all about “creating beautiful things” for Izzo, who on any given day, is seated behind the sewing machine making her uniquely crafted items. That’s when she’s not busy greeting visitors to her “little shop of wonders,” where her unique offerings abound in both creativity and diversity — from handcrafted and fair trade treasures to one-of-a-kind artwork and unique jewelry.
