We spent a weekend afternoon wandering around Beacon. It has been slowly transforming into a great little town with lots of specialty boutiques, restaurants and cafes. Definitely worth stopping by if you’re in the area.
Lately, my knitting has been traveling with me on every road trip. My parents have alpacas and also sell a lot of alpaca products and produce grown on their farm at local farmers markets. My mom recently had a bunch of her alpaca fiber spun into yarn and put in an order with me for several hats to be sold at the farmers markets in the fall and winter. Never too early to start!
Young & Able was one of my favorite store in Beacon. It had a lot of locally made items and was really beautifully decorated. I loved everything she had in her shop. She also has a location in Brooklyn.
Reservoir & Wood had some really beautiful pieces. I also loved how they decorated, using vintage feeling pieces against clean white walls and beautiful wood floors. I’d love to have my house look like that some day.
Blackbird Attic was a lot of consignment and vintage clothing. Always fun to peruse!
Clay Wood & Cotton had some great knit and handmade pieces from local designers and craftsmen, a really cute store.
The Beacon Bagel serves some great coffee and sandwiches. It’s quirky and worth a visit.
The Chocolate Studio is great for some homemade ice cream and sweets.
Beacon is home to a lot of artists. There’s several coffee shops, glass blowing shops and art galleries. It’s nice to spend a pretty summer day wandering down the street from one end of Beacon to the other. Enjoy!
