BOUTIQUES ON THE WEST END
Darryl's Women's Clothing Boutique
155 Main Street www.darrylsny.com
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!
183 Main Street www.luxeoptique.com
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.
Quickly becoming a kid-favorite shop, the decorating projects at The Crafty Hammer are creatively fulfilling for kids and adults. The Crafty Hammer designs and prints their own stencils, which get placed onto wood blocks for you to decorate with your choice of over 50 colors, glitter, and other bling they have on their shelves. Kids' Birthday Parties can be set up in their special Kid Room (which has little-people tables), as well as Adult Workshops for those looking for creative retreats and meet-ups. Stop in for a $5 paint-a-board session like we did on July 4th! More perks: air-conditioned, with free snacks and juice!
