Happening This Weekend - 9/6/2019

Plenty to do this weekend in and around Beacon! The shops we stopped into today are full (Luxe Optique, Zakka Joy, Darryl's Clothing Boutique, Beacon Barkery) though you wouldn't have thought, as the sidewalk was light with walkers. It was because the shoppers were inside. There is so much you will find in Beacon. Tag us during your adventures!

Darryl's Women's Clothing Boutique
155 Main Street

Meow! The faux animal print is in at Darryl's Clothing Boutique! The boutique is loving fall, and you will love the jackets you see in there, both cropped and shaped. This off the shoulder dress from the designer Eva Varro is a show-stopper, as are the other dresses - and black belts with cool hardware that you can decorate with. Do check these out in person...


Luxe Optique
183 Main Street

Look up close at the white side of this frame: it is granite, from the Hong Kong based design house, Rigards. Available now in white or black at Luxe Optique. Usually the side eye shade is soft, but not this rock-hard design. As delicate as they look, Rigards are created to be collector's items, to be worn and handed down to the next generation.

Antalek & Moore
Antalek & Moore Insurance Agency has a special reminder for you regarding kid and bus safety now that school has started: "Share the road with school buses. We know the first few days take a little longer to get the kids loaded but be patient! Who doesn't love a good first day back to school picture with their kids waving from the bus? According to the National Safety Council, the most dangerous area for children is within 10 feet of their bus. Give them space to load and unload. This is especially true in the first few weeks of school as kids are excited and getting used to this year's routine."
