Bearskin Neck is art colony filled with wonderful stores!  Most were still closed since it was not quite summer but I did stumble upon the Wicked Peacock where I found some fun, trendy jewelry that I could’t resist! Definitely make a stop here – I guarantee you won’t be able to leave without something special!
