King and Curated
1 East Main Street, Retail #2
Welcome to the Shopping Guide, King and Curated! This new shop, located on the far east end of Beacon's Main Street, is the blended concept store of two Fashion Institute of Technology artists: jewelry designer Lauren Decker and wedding photographer Alicia King. Look for Lauren's fine line "Duende" carried in the store, and her Turquoise and Diamond collection of earrings, necklaces, and rings. On the walls, look for Alicia's body of artistic photography, where she has captured the beauty found in the old ruins at Madam Brett Park in Beacon, NY. Meet with either Lauren or Alicia for your wedding jewelry or photography needs in the lounge located right in the store.
Where is King and Curated? Near the dummy light at Main and East Main, just down from the old train tracks in the renovated factory that used to display the Electric Windows, across the street from the Roundhouse.
