Beard Oil is back in stock at reMADE, and it's not just any beard oil. This vegan and animal friendly solution is made by Roosevelt Grooming Co. Handmade in small batches with natural ingredients found in New York.

Where is reMADE? Across from Tito's, next to Bank Square.

Bellus on Main

Pineda Covalin ties are available in two patterns and lots of colors at Bellus on Main! Designs inspired by the biodiversity, history and traditions of Mexico.

Where is Bellus? Next door to Luxe Optique, up the road from Notions-n-Potions.

Luxe Optique

 Anne & Valentin frames are made in France and hard to find! It's rare to be able to see the entire collection (take a peek here on their website to get a preview). These frames are high quality, high fashion and handmade to last. Try on a pair to see what fits your face, and your personality, best. For the men out there, this is your weekend to treat yourself.
Where is Luxe Optique? Across the block from Beacon Bread Company, and across the street from Beacon Barkery.

Tin Shingle

Empower yourself by making or changing your Squarespace website. You can do a really good job! Knowing which design buttons to push or drag around is half the battle. Stream this webinar Training TuneUp anytime from Tin Shingle called "Squarespace Intro: Tips & Tricks". Watch it from your computer, tablet or phone. Tin Shingle's owner Katie will take you behind the scenes of Squarespace websites to see how to use their tools to make the website you want.

InHouse Design Media

The flexibility that comes from a Squarespace website is really incredible. On this website design pictured above, the client was a pottery studio selling classes using the Occasion scheduling platform. InHouse Design Media wanted to present the class options in a very design friendly way for the potential customer before they clicked into Occasion's own design interface. The result? Happy customers who clearly saw what classes were offered and when, and then bought a class. There's lots InHouse can do for you. See their portfolio for ideas and reach out to see how they can help.
