Happening This Weekend 9/21/2018

Who is ready to Pumpkin Spice up ALL THE THINGS because the first day of Fall is this Saturday (at 9:54 pm to exact). Brett's Hardware is on it early, with this clever carving of a pumpkin inside a pumpkin inside a pumpkin inside a pumpkin. And they have mums. Because what's a front porch or window box in the fall without mums?

Luxe Optique
183 Main Street
(across Cliff Street from Beacon Bread Company)
Aren't these frames from Luxe Optique perfect on Rebeca? She is wearing Dita Eyewear, specifically the Mann Crystal frame. They effortlessly go with any color, and here's an insider tip: These frames also make for great "transitions" if you wanted to add the tint to the glasses for when you step outside. Inquire with Luxe Optique to see for yourself. (Oh yes, pun intended.)



Lambs Hill Bridal Boutique
1 East Main St., Retail #3

(near the historic dummy light)
A tiara tops the bride. She could even wear one for the ceremony, and another for the celebration. Hair up? Or cascading down? Calling all brides: Step into Lambs Hill Bridal Boutique and try on these new tiaras and others, just in from Bel Aire Bridal
