Recognize this woodwork? It's from Peekskill-based artist Robert Powchik, maker of "the coolest cooler ever". His work is usually only available at the Beacon Flea Market, but now you can find his wooden spoons at reMADE any day of the week!

Bellus on Main

Easter Dress season is coming! As is the Pre-K mini-graduation season. Bellus on Main has high-fashion for women, but included in their collection is this adorable, flouncy dress for kids as well, available in various sizes. It's wise to peek onto all of the shelves and racks at Bellus, because you never know what you might find with these collectors of fashion from all over the world.

Luxe Optique
183 Main Street

In our continuing series, "Luxe Frames On Faces Of Beacon" for Luxe Optique, we visit Steph in her store, Society of Lash, during a break between lash extension applications, to snap a photo of her in her exaggerated Dita Superstition cat-eye glasses. This frame is handmade in Japan, and Luxe Optique is having a Dita trunk show next weekend so that you can see more from the line.

Raven Rose
474 Main Street

Herbs! Glorious herbs. Even if you haven't started seeding for Spring yet, you can grow mint or basil right now from your kitchen window. These self-watering mason jars, filled with rock and seed, are waiting for you at Raven Rose. Several herbs are available, so that you can sprinkle fresh flavors into your cocktails, sauces or salads. Did you catch the part about how they water themselves? Because they do.

Style Storehouse
484 Main Street

New "sunnies" are in, says Style Storehouse in this Instagram video. They are ready for spring, with long and short shirts, stretchy, loose or fitted. Stop in to see their collection of sunglasses that can go with any of your styles.

The Vault
446 Main Street

Fresh garnishes are ready for the delicious cocktails served up at The Vault. The freshly picked mint in this glass pictured here is for "The Beacon Made," which you'll find on the Cocktail Menu. The bartender muddles the mint, lime, and cucumber. It's shaken and served in the perfect glass. Ask for it to be served with Great 9 Gin from Denning's Point Distillery!
