133 Main St., Beacon, NY

Cute stuffed animal alert! Crafted by Naka Nora Knits, this wiggly squid and his friends look great popping out of someone's stocking, or as the first Hanukkah gift. Pick one out at reMADE.

Mountain Tops
144 Main St., Beacon, NY

Cozy! The foot pampering continues at Mountain Tops. These slipper socks with sturdy soles are perfect for cozying up near a tree, buried in wrapping paper, or tiptoeing outside for fresh air with a cup of hot cocoa.

Bellus on Main
181 Main St., Beacon, NY

Guess what this is? An iPhone case/sling, custom-made by a teacher who now does these laser cut patterns for a living. You'll find more from her in Bellus (the new boutique next to Luxe Optique), so head for the black shelves and take a look.

Luxe Optique
183 Main St., Beacon, NY

The Dita line of glasses is one of the favorites at Luxe Optique, who are known for matching the right pair of glasses with your personality. Just ask the mayor, the fine folks in Dream in Plastic, Tourmaline Home, or the many other shop owners and townpeople near and far who have had their eyewear experience changed by Luxe.


Raven Rose
474 Main St., Beacon, NY

Unicorns, pigs and owls! All at Raven Rose right now on their front table. This looks to be the perfect dish to hold rings, earrings, and other delicate things. Dress up the dresser with the gold-lined dishes for other important littles. Plus, all holiday items are on sale right now, if you're still decorating, or if you are one of those collectors who waits to get next year's decorations during this year's post-season.

Style Storehouse
484 Main St., Beacon, NY

Those who want to have a kick-butt day will want to browse the stationery, card and mug collection at Style Storehouse. Owner Michelle is a do-er, and you can catch her vibes with her "Doing It My Way" and "Glitter and Goals" mugs. Plus, plan your week with her "Weekly Boss Plans" calendar pads that bring the seriousness of pen and paper back to your life.

The East End (formerly Pfotoshop)
493 Main St., Beacon, NY

For that new gym membership you're going to start, pick up a fresh and sexy workout t-shirt at The East End. It'll look great layered, with this handsome duffel bag from Brouk & Co. for the new you after class.
