Bridgehampton, NY – Aug. 31, 2021 – Beauty and elegance are celebrated everywhere on the Hampton Classic’s 60-acre showgrounds, evidenced by its spectacular competition rings as well as the magnificent Agneta Currey Boutique Garden and Stable Row. 
 
Marsia Holzer of New York, N.Y., brought her expertise to the Hampton Classic as this year’s boutique contest judge. She is a dedicated horseperson, artist, and designer whose Marsia Holzer Studio works with natural materials, recycled metals, and salvaged wood to create modern furniture, lighting, and sculpture.
 
Tabbethia Haubold-Magee’s Long Island Yarn and Farm caught Holzer's eye the most while walking around the Agneta Currey Boutique Garden. Ultimately crowned the winner, their boutique features a collection of bath and body products, clothing, and yarn from local llamas and alpacas. 
 
“I thought it was very inviting,” Holzer said. “How they set up the boutique really makes you want to come in, sit down, and look at everything. The way they have all the colors lined up is so beautiful and dramatic. Then I found out everything’s organic, which is wonderful. It was so beautifully laid out, and I love the products as well.”

“It’s a great honor,” said the shop’s Jill Kazel, who accepted the award on behalf of Haubold-Magee. “It’s fantastic to be out here every year, and we are excited to be this year’s winners. We love the Hampton Classic, and we love everything that it stands for.”
 
Second place was awarded to Polished Coconut, a curated selection of beautiful, sustainable, fair-trade handmade items, the sales and trade of which help empower women and support local economies. Third place was awarded to Wellington and Company Antiques, a rare and diverse collection of antiques representing all equestrian disciplines from polo and foxhunting to horse racing and showjumping.
