You've been warned that Bellus on Main is offering 40% off on their Winter stock, which includes creatively cool leather boots like the ones at right. Word of the sale has gotten around, so supplies are now limited. Don't miss a deal - be sure to go in and look on all of the shelves, behind all of the tables, for something to treat yourself with.

Luxe Optique
183 Main Street

Kicking off our "Frames on the Faces of Beacon" series for Luxe Optique, meet Irma, co-owner of Bellus (and mother of Fabhaus!) who is wearing glasses from Luxe. These are an Alain Mikli frame, handmade in France. The frame is a perfect fit for Irma because the uplifted shape of the frame matches the curve of her face and her vibrant personality. The colors perfectly complement the combination of her eye color, hair, and skin tone. The light tortoiseshell color accented with white highlights make this frame extremely versatile and feminine. It is a beautiful frame for a beautiful lady!

Daniel Aubry
Daniel Aubry knows a good location when he sees one. The best eyes in real estate know to invest in an area before it has a tipping point, and before it becomes hot.

His real estate office, which doubles as his photo gallery, is located in what is now becoming the heart of the East End of Beacon. See his new Dedicated Sponsor Page at A Little Beacon Blog!
