We are pleased to introduce Rhody Gem, a new monthly column in Providence Monthly. We’re always being thanked for spotlighting the “hidden gems” of the state, and in our ongoing efforts to leave no stone unturned, we’re putting the call out to our readership! Each month we’ll spotlight a Rhody Gem: a business, artisan, or place lead to us by our faithful readers.
A finely curated antiques and vintage shop filled with tidy displays of everything from dishware to furniture to light fixtures.
Despite its name, Benefit Street Antiques is located at the corner of Wickenden and Brook Streets under signage that reads Art & Antiques.
Since 1999, Marian Clark has filled her shop with all things antique and vintage: chandeliers, furniture, jewelry, art, and more, all sourced with an eye towards design. A gem herself, upon being notified of this feature Marian said the best thing about being in business is that “every day someone new and wonderful walks in the door!”
