Golden Eagle, an arts supply store founded in 1954, has reopened in a new location in East Hampton Village.

Just over a week ago, the store opened at 79 Newtown Lane, next to the UPS Store and across the street from the East Hampton Middle School.

In July, store owners announced the landlord leased their space at 14 Gingerbread Lane in the village to another tenant, which turned out to be Amagansett Applied Arts. The owners said they would close Sept. 30.

Established nearly 60 years ago, Golden Eagle is the oldest arts store on the South Fork, according to the business website. It touted clients such as Jackson Pollack and Willem de Kooning.

Golden Eagle found its new home, in a building that also houses the Halsey McKay Gallery. It opened Oct. 18 and signs went up this past Friday.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., except for Sunday, when it is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
