Our Fireflies have traded in their elving gear for Cupid bows! For the last month, they’ve been bringing in lovely things — cards, a wide array of  jewelry, paintings and photos, pretty pottery, lovely felted wool things…so much more. The glasswork is divine. Come find that unique and perfect gift for yourself or someone you care for.

We’re also a great place to stop in with a love, savor the art, perhaps chat with an artist or two and find that perfect thing together… Come see! 

Our address is 162 Main Street, Northport. We’re open:

Tues – Thurs, 11am-6pm

Fri – Sat 11am-8pm

Sunday 11-5.

We’re usually closed on Mondays but will be open Valentine’s Day until at least 6pm!

We boast some extraordinary talent, while maintaining a very down to earth and supportive atmosphere that is unique to Long Island. Every time you shop at The Firefly, you help make sure we can continue to serve local artists and people like you who appreciate them. Now, you’ve made us the Best Art Gallery on Long Island.
