If everything is starting to feel the same and you're wondering where that New Year change is in your life, you might start with little baby steps, such as decluttering with bins and things found at Brett's Hardware, or clean(er) eating at Beacon Natural (see their freezer section - lots of easy options) or taking any kind of class found in A Little Beacon Blog's Adult Classes Guide. Adult Beginner Tap from Ballet Arts Studio was just added!

BOUTIQUES ON THE WEST END
Luxe Optique 183 Main Street www.luxeoptique.com (across Cliff Street from Beacon Bread Company)
Cutie Alert! Luxe Optique has a range of affordable prices (and colors) for glasses for kids. If you're concerned about protecting eyes from the blue light coming from screens and devices, consider getting the blue-light protection added to your frames - it comes with the "transitions." You could even get it with purple tinting! Think about it.
BOUTIQUES IN THE MIDDLE
L a M è r e Clothing + Goods 436 Main Street
The jewelry selection is getting good at L a M è r e - a very easy #treatyoself. Plus, April is getting more home decor goods in, and may have a box-opening reveal in her Instagram. Have you seen her recent video about "120 more days of winter"? AND, a Winter Tag Sale is going on. Time to snag some sweaters that were $88, and now are $68.
BOUTIQUES ON THE EAST END
Lambs Hill Bridal Boutique
1 East Main, Retail #3 www.lambshillbridalboutique.com (near the dummy light)

With its iconic and always-evolving look, Lambs Hill is helping to define the east end of town. Do take yourself down there, and visit the soap store and designer jewelry store next door! Plus, grab a cup of coffee at Trax.
8 Sunset Hill Road, Glenham, NY
A cutie starter home or project home in Glenham - just look at the kitchen - all vintage! These pieces would be hard to part with.

It's Website Design Time at Katie James, Inc.! Our latest client is our landlord, Deborah Bigelow, owner and renovator of the Telephone Building. We are working with her to bring the story of the building to more people.
