Pop-Up Shop Is OPEN! Walk Around Corrado's Design Showroom for Kitchen & Bath Surfaces

A Little Beacon's Space is ready for you! Come in this weekend to touch and feel samples of flooring and countertops from Corrado's Design Center, where they specialize in porcelain tile, marble, stone, mosaics and glass products. This will be the easiest, most convenient home renovation shopping you will do in Beacon! But there are only two days left for you to visit - Saturday and Sunday.

Bring the kids, because you'll get to make a free tile magnet and take home a little Super Hero Tile Guy! These red Super Hero Tile Guys are actually spacers used when installing tile. Corrado's Design Center can help you pick out a pattern, then supply everything you need to make it happen. Do some Adult Coloring of your own on a blank magnet tile.

WHERE: 291 Main St., Beacon, NY 12508, First Floor, First Door
WHEN: Friday to Sunday, September 7 to 9
Saturday: 10 am to 8 pm (wine and cheese starting at 6pm)
Sunday:  10 am to 4 pm
KIDS CRAFT ALERT! Design your own free magnet! Available all day long, while supplies last.
DESIGN TIP: Take a picture of the room(s) you dream of renovating and bring it to the shop. This will help you imagine which styles would work. Could be the bathroom floor, shower, kitchen - anything.

PS: This weekend, The Telephone Building is in extremely creative form! There will be ambient art from ambidextrous artist Donna Mikkelsen, visiting the Beahive next door for a "Day of Spontaneous Symmetry." More hands-on art creating is available for little kids from 3 to 4 pm. The littlest mark-makers (ages 1 to 3 years) are welcome to draw. From 4 to 5 pm, everyone, all ages, is invited to playfully explore symmetry, movement, and rhythm. Both of those sessions are free, so don't miss out! Come back in the evening for an opening of Donna Mikkelsen's own work, Spontaneous Symmetry, with art on Beahive's walls and happening live, before your eyes.  

All of your Art Openings are starting today. Pick which ones you want to visit by using A Little Beacon Blog's Second Saturday Art Guide, which has write-ups of each of them.

Pop-Up Shops Guide: Seasonal Shops & Fairs Going On Now!

In addition to the wonderful shops found on Main Street, the hot trend in pop-up shops has come to Beacon. Pop-up shops are very special because they curate items that may be few or one of a kind, or bring access to a brand that may be hard to find. Pop-up shops usually consist of a collection of artists, or are a mini and temporary extension of a store in a new location, or are run by a single artist. This guide includes pop-up shops that are located on Beacon's Main Street, as well as those in the surrounding areas for those who work in the Hudson Valley and are driving past opportunities on their way to/from home. If you have a pop-up shop you'd like us to know about, please email editorial@alittlebeaconblog.com. If your shop is in this guide and you want to enhance it with an advertising package, please click here for details.
