133 Main Street

Get yourself a nice cold six-pack of the Coney Island Mermaid Pilsner (actually available at Rite Aid, or check the new Craft Beer Shoppe next to Key Food) and put it into this handcrafted mermaid bag by Michelle of 'BomChelle Bags available at reMADE right now. This isn't the only style, as in this collection you'll find a little of the sweet side, and a little of the rock-n-roll side, but they are all limited edition. Can't wait to see who is sporting this mermaid style!

A Classic Couture Fashion Boutique
178 Main Street

The Goddess look... Where can you get this much pleated organdy in a couture dress with this much flounce? At A Classic Couture Fashion Boutique, that's where, right near Artisan Wine Shop. This Marchesa dress could be worn for a summer evening out, or even as a wedding dress for those who are going short this year. You must try it on, at least...

Bellus on Main
181 Main Street

Ingenious Alert at Bellus on Main. Not only does Bellus have high fashion on their racks, but they look for really smart products to keep your life easy. Introducing the "droplet": a tiny blue ball that can fit on your keychain, and out pops a "dry bag" that can hold your wet bathing suit, used tissues, PB&J sandwiches, little kid snacks, and everything else that might wreck the super cute lining of your bag. Because - let's be real: Sometimes we buy bags just for the lining, and this dry bag will protect that.

Luxe Optique
183 Main Street

When we first saw the announcement from Luxe Optique that the new line of Anne et Valentine came in, we didn't realize what a big deal this handcrafted line was, a frame many agree "opens the eyes and provides definition." Upon seeing them in person, one could take pictures of these glasses for days and days. There are so many different looks and personalities inside each frame. The designers of the frames imagine very carefully the personality and energy of the wearer, and translate that into a sketch on the studio drawing board, matched with the right kind of metal and color. The two frames pictured here hooked our attention, with their cartoon-elegance look. But this isn't the only look you'll find in this collection right now at Luxe.

Style Storehouse
484 Main Street

Spring is indeed in the air at Style Storehouse, an oasis of soft fabrics that will surprise you when you try them on. Not to mention their easy pick-me-up jewelry to punch up any outfit. After your brunch or mid-afternoon lunch at Beacon Falls Cafe or Harry's, keep going past the restaurants to duck into Style Storehouse, and treat yourself to something fancy yet comfy.

Thank you reMADE, A Classic Couture Fashion Boutique, Bellus on Main, Luxe Optique, Style Storehouse, and SallyeAnder for sponsoring the Shopping Guide!

River Therapeutic Massage
612 Rt. 52
Beacon, NY


Now that your spring workouts have started up again, you get to relax those muscles under the healing hands of Karen at River Therapeutic Massage. An easy choice is a 60-minute massage that can include a variety of therapeutic massage techniques, such as Swedish, deep tissue, acupressure, and others. To really kick it in, add a mini-hot stone treatment onto your massage, but let Karen know beforehand so that she can warm the stones. Book it now, and enjoy!
