The family trade
For the last 56 years, the Sweeney's have been the East End's premier auto upholsterer. It all started when Philip Sr. and his wife and 3 (soon to be 4!) sons moved to a potato farming town on the North Fork and took a chance to open his own upholstery business in Jamesport.
After business started booming, he and his wife picked up shop and moved it to the busy North Highway in Southampton where his sons Steve and Mike run the show today, specializing in classic restoration and expanding into marine upholstery.
But their talent does not end there! They jobs have taken them to creating awnings, repairing horse buggies and airplane seats, and occasionally their own children's Halloween costumes!
