300 Reasons to Smile

If you are searching for a way to be in alignment with your source energy, then go to Skaneateles, New York.

The Skaneateles Curbstone Festival is currently underway. This is a sidewalk sale involving over forty merchants on W. Genesee, Jordan and Fennell Streets. The festival continues tomorrow, (July 21, 2023) from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm and again on Saturday, (July 22, 2023) from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Today was a wonderful day of browsing shops and chatting with vendors.

I finally got the opportunity to visit Skaneateles 300. I follow them on Instagram and absolutely love the way owner Geraldean Lantier merchandises. Each season she comes up with a theme that unifies items to create a cohesive look for the store. This coincides with current trends in fashion.

For summer, she has filled the store with silky florals and colorful embroideries as well as beaded purses with positive text messages or Greek evil eye motif alluding to an island hopping vacation vibe.

Brands include local companies as well as international designers, some of which cannot be found anywhere else in this area (Brazilian and British designers share space with Free People and Farm Rio). The boutique caters to women but she said, many mothers shop with their teenaged daughters and find things that suit their respective personal styles.

Ms. Lantier has a keen eye for fashion. I really enjoyed meeting her!

In addition to women’s apparel, the store carries home goods: soaps, candles and gifty stuff. So many beautiful things!
