When it comes to shopping, our area boasts a plethora of small shops that have been open for decades. If you’re sprucing up the house, head to Found Gallery for interior decor and Downtown Home and Garden to clean up the yard. For style, look no further than Vintage to Vogue, or put a ring on it at Lewis Jewelers. For a Friday night in, pick up some vinyl at Encore Records, a bottle of vino from A&L Wine Castle and some fresh natural food from Arbor Farms Market.

Fittingly, then, Chris DuPont has titled his forthcoming album Floodplains, evoking a subtle but potent force of nature where a river mimics the unpredictable bends of life, depositing
