Mercantile - A Soft Touch
The Barefoot Dreams Wrap is the ultimate in coziness. In fact, this may just be the softest piece of clothing you’ll ever own. It’s lightweight enough to be worn year-round, but especially ideal for cooler, chillier evenings. Available in five colors and in two sizes (S/M and L/XL) for $99.

Chef Phil at Bud & Alley’s Pizza Bar + Trattoria has a salad foodies will “fall” in love with. Snuggle up to a warm and colorful Grilled Squash Salad that celebrates the deliciousness of the fall season. It is a marvelous medley of grilled squash, radicchio, currants, hazelnuts, yogurt, chili and salsa verde. This dish is a beautiful and healthy way to welcome autumn to your belly.
