OCEAN GROVE, NJ — Face masks with a patriotic flair are among the latest styles being handcrafted by Serenity by the Sea owner Sarah Taylor Izzo — just in time with Fourth of July celebrations right around the corner.

Based on a growing number of customer requests, she’s added a plethora of fabrics that boast American pride, featuring the stars and stripes, bald eagle, fireworks and so many more designs in red, white and blue patterns.

Offering a wide array of combinations, Izzo suggests that a lightweight blue denim fabric may be the ideal choice for one side because “nothing is more American than denim.”
