Darryl's Women's Clothing Boutique
155 Main Street

These hot summer days call for halter tops - all day, every day. Darryl's Women's Clothing Boutique has this pink one in right now, plus a necklace to pair it with. The store is air-conditioned, so grab an iced coffee at Bank Square and head on up to this boutique!

Luxe Optique
183 Main Street

The brand of glasses pictured here is called Rigards. The frames are made with all "naturally found materials" such as granite, solid silver and aluminum. Made by five artists in a manufacturing facility in Hong Kong, the entire line of frames is made-to-order: Each frame is limited edition. Starting at $580, they can go up to at least $1,800 (like for the solid silver ones). The frames pictured here are a double layer. The outside darker glass is a magnetic clip, so that you can wear them as sunglasss. Or unclip it, and you're back to the regular glasses. One pair, double duty!

And don't forget, the eye doctor is in at Luxe Optique! Schedule your appointment, but walk in any time to shop frames.
