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.
What It Is:
Since 1980, Peaceable Kingdom owners Joan and Phil Ritchie have successfully recreated the thrill of discovery you would have visiting a bazaar in an exotic locale. Along with their daughter Siobhan, the family makes regular shopping trips to North and Sub-Saharan Africa, the Himalayas, Central and South America, Southeast Asia, and Mexico, sourcing colorful handmade Fair-Trade goods for their shop. This one-of-a-kind store is filled with home accents like rugs and drums, artwork and paintings, gifts, and more.
Where to Find It:
Find Peaceable Kingdom in a brick building with a blue awning and ruby red doors.
