Home: Hire Them: Mark W. Eggleston and David Allieri
To Long Beach Boulevard shoppers, David Allieri (left) and Mark W. Eggleston are the bon vivant owners of boxy and bustling shelter shop Wyndecrest Home. To a growing number of the island’s second-home-owning design clients, they’re “markanddavid,” one word. To everyone else along the 18-mile stretch, they are, simply, “The Boys.” Stocking their six-years-old-this-summer shop with seashell chandeliers, vintage signage, original art, hostess gifts and hard-to-find furnishings, the pair also use the storefront as command central for their booming residential design biz. Their specialty: refreshing old Shore houses and giving salt-air patina to newer ones via nautical fabrics, classic antiques and maritime anything. Let’s hear it for The Boys. Wyndecrest Home, 233 Second Street, Beach Haven, 609-492-7030, wyndecresthome.com.
