Luxe Optique

183 Main Street
(across Cliff Street from Beacon Bread Company)
If you still have cable and caught some recent episodes of Wonder Woman from the 1970s, you'll have noticed Lynda Carter's signature very large glasses. Right now, Luxe Optique has a pair of designer frames from Christian Roth that can give you a similar signature look. Go visit the stylists at Luxe and try these on.


L a M è r e Clothing + Goods
436 Main Street
Jeans are in! Stacks of 'em. April at L a M è r e has brought you this iconic display inspired by the old days of Express, where you could find many different fits and flares from the wall of denim, organized by style. She can help you find the size you need, so go in and see if you want stretch, full leg, distressed, all of it? You pick.

A special welcome to our new Shopping Guide Sponsor Binnacle Books! Their Book Club meets the first Wednesday of the month, so save the date! Their next Book Club is in partnership with Dennings Point Distillery and will discuss "Educated" by Tara Westover.


Lambs Hill Bridal Boutique
1 East Main, Retail #3

(near the historic dummy light)
Did you catch the live sketching of bridal gowns down at Lambs Hill Bridal Boutique last weekend? Tony Mentel, designer for Justin Alexander, was at the Justin Alexander Signature Trunk Show last weekend (despite the storm) sketching brides once they picked their perfect dress. Watch him go!
