133 Main Street

The process by which these art-to-wear scarves from Huzzah! Unique Handmade Wearables are made is fascinating. Dyed silk gauze fabric and only the finest, very soft merino wool "top" meticulously are arranged by hand. In the process of felting, the fibers merge with the silk and shrink to create the finished product. These pieces are light as a feather and can be worn year-round. You may have seen Huzzah! at Hudson Valley Farm and Flea, and she's a part of Makers on the Hudson. But lucky you, you can find these pieces at reMADE because owner Liz has a great eye.

Bellus on Main
181 Main Street

Maybe you've been trying to get into Bellus on Main but the "Closed" sign was up. It was because they are inside setting up for Spring! They are back from the fashion trade shows and inventory is in. Those who love the flowy Boho Chic look with off-the-shoulder shirts, dramatic sleeves with eyelet decoration, and beaded necklaces from Mexico and Turkey will love what they find in Bellus this weekend.

Classic Couture
178 Main Street

These little Prada pretties are waiting for a size 40.5 foot to slip them on. Covered in a pewter-gray silk and made in Italy, this d’Orsay pump with a strap will punch up your shoe collection. Add to that the high-couture Jack McConnell vintage cashmere felt hat with the feather plumes (pictured wih the pumps). You could hunt for these pieces on eBay, or you can find these treasures right here in Beacon at Classic Couture, near Artisan Wine Shop.

Luxe Optique
183 Main Street

Come on, Spring! Almost here! The sun rays reflecting off the snow are requiring protective eyewear, and DITA's modern interpretation of the classic cat-eye style is available at  Luxe Optique right now. Just one of many vintage-inspired styles you will find in this high-fashion optique boutique.

Raven Rose
474 Main Street

First of all, you need this cagey shelf in your life. Second of all that is a succulent you see growing from that vase, and there are more where those came from at Raven Rose. So much so, that we have been privy to owner Courtney's future plans for succulents, terrariums, and you. Stay tuned! But first, duck inside to see this shelf. 

Style Storehouse
484 Main Street

Spring is in at Style Storehouse and so are the sleeveless T-shirt dresses you can wear over stretch pants or skinny jeans. Need to tone those arms to look good for summer? Just head over to A Little Beacon Blog's Beauty Guide and Adult Classes Guide to find gyms you can join and classes you can drop in on...

Antalek & Moore

Cybersecurity isn't usually on the mind of a business owner or artist once they finally launch their website. Luckily, Antalek & Moore thinks about it a lot. They are Beacon's local insurance agency and can talk to you about Cyber Insurance and Business Insurance. See what they have to say about it.

Daniel Aubry
Daniel Aubry knows of a few good business deals happening around town. Who will be the next to own the Pleasant Ridge II & Restaurant building? The business is also for sale, or bring your own ideas. This building offers two Main Street storefronts, one side office space, one 2-bedroom apartment and four 1-bedroom apartments. It is located on a corner lot with seven approved spaces, next to a municipal lot, across from a bank lot and a second municipal lot, so parking is not an issue. No vacancies, no leases and all under what Beacon warrants. This long-established pizzeria/restaurant has been in this location for over 17 years. Bring your business and ideas, and own a piece of what Beacon has to offer. See the details here at DanielAubryRealty.com.
