The great thing about having a boutique mate is that the products expand and in this case Annie Mame and Allusions Salon and Boutique is becoming a little department store. Francine Piscitelli has wonderful clothing. One of the lines that Francine is carrying is Velvet, some of you may be familiar with that line as it is very comfy and soft and well-appointed. She has candles which are perfect for hostess gifts and then she even has shampoos and conditioners and brushes and that all important hair spray, I can’t tell you how nice it is to be able to have a can of that stuff at my fingertips if I need it. Don’t forget Francine has her Allusions Salon in Branford so if it’s hair and makeup you need, call on her there too.There’s a reason that Francine has been in the beauty business for more than 20-years, she knows what she’s doing. New clothing and her french candles just came in over the weekend at our place at Venetucci Home in Westbrook, Connecticut, come check it out, and as always, our little corner of the retail world is always changing.
