Darryl's Women's Clothing Boutique
155 Main Street

In Darryl's Clothing Boutique now is the line, Petit Pois, by Vivian G, an American designer with a European flair who produces her collection in the USA. She is known for her eclectic mix of prints and patterns in lightweight mesh fabrics that are unique to her designs. While the fabrics are part of her signature, they are the secret to packing for travel, as they take up minimal space when packed for a weekend getaway or vacation, and they don't wrinkle!
SECOND SATURDAY ART OPENING: See the exhibit from Beacon-based artist Catherine Welshman, in Darryl's now.

Luxe Optique

Featured here are a pair of Theo frames - you need to try them on to experience the full funky effect.
