It's time for the weekend! From now until at least mid-May, there are lots of events requesting your time.

133 Main Street

Time flies, but really, who's keeping track? A subtle way of displaying a clock on the wall, made by Beaconite Chris Faroe @faeroplane and available at reMADE. One-of-a-kind reclaimed creations that won't have you counting down the minutes. Looking at the driftwood will keep you in that dock-of-the-bay state of mind.

Bellus on Main
181 Main Street

Stunning. That's how they roll at Bellus on Main. But stunning isn't the only quality held by items that make it onto the shelves of Bellus. The creation of the design has to be special. These rings are made from recycled alcohol bottles, including SKYY vodka, Corona beer, or Cabernet wine. Each ring comes with a reference sheet, should you have a preference for consumption.

Luxe Optique
183 Main Street

Tiny baby Ray-Ban sunglasses! You'll find them at Luxe Optique, and they are as cute in your hand as they are on little faces. You must check them out. Choose from the John Lennon hippie style (left), or the Tom Cruise aviator style (right).

Style Storehouse
484 Main Street

The pop-up shopping night is almost here! Style Storehouse will host a pop-up shop event at Vino at Crew Restaurant in Poughkeepsie next Friday, April 28, from 6 to 8 pm. Enjoy complimentary cocktails and hors d'oeuvres while you shop for your spring/summer wardrobe!

Daniel Aubry Realty

Several buildings have changed hands on Main Street in the past year. Realtor Daniel Aubry of Daniel Aubry Realty was at the center of one of the biggest sales involving simultaneous properties - 20 of them - on Beacon's West End, all the while representing both parties. We cover how he did it in this article:
