ALICIA ADAMS ALPACA
Opening: Saturday November 4th
TIME: 11:00 AM

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND
Privet fell hook, line, and sinker for this luxury lifestyle brand and its singular dedication to alpaca wool. (Back by popular demand just in time for the "need warmth" season.) What's not to love about a business that is family-owned and operated – that is local to the Northeast and has a deep connection to the land – that is socially conscious...that is a champion of artisans.

Throws, blankets, pillows, clothing for men, women & children and accessories galore...and of course, for that hard-to-buy-for type, scarves. Get a jump on your holiday list.
