Darryl's Women's Clothing Boutique
155 Main Street

Still time to romp around this summer - and Darryl's Clothing Boutique is making it easy! Breeze through August on these warm nights in an outfit like the one pictured here. And then, top it with this black and white necklace, imported from Italy, exclusively in the Hudson Valley at Darryl's. Check our InstaStories in the "Sponsors" section for how this little necklace works! It's a wrap-around and the circles come together. Stylish for any season. Neat!
HOT TIP! Darryl's is now open daily 11 - 6!


Luxe Optique
183 Main Street

According to some, the Anne Valentin line is the easiest first frame to bring home from Luxe Optique - and to launch your collection of eyewear. The concept of collecting glasses is new to some, while others have 5, 12, and 30 pairs of glasses. You can see how easy this can be when you visit Luxe to see the wide range of styles to fit the wide range of heads and eyes in this world.
