Rhody Gem: Hungry Ghost Press

November 2020

Posted

What it is:

More than just a retail shop, this arts hub is an artist-owned studio that puts out merch printed in-house, from tees and repurposed vintage apparel to patches, pins, zines, VHS tapes, and other eccentricities.

 

Where to find it:

A neighbor to Troop and Riffraff Bookstore & Bar, the Olneyville brick-and-mortar shop can be found in the industrial brick Plant Complex on Valley Street, or you can browse online.

 

What makes it a Rhody Gem?

With a horror movie or reruns of The Office always playing on TV, different friends’ playlists flooding the airwaves, vintage melange filling every nook and cranny, and a beat-up photocopier for assembling zines, Hungry Ghost Press feels a bit like that one artsy friend you know’s studio apartment. A true maker space, the artists behind the project fill their days with cool collabs creating fun accessories with tongue-in-cheek (and sometimes bleak) sayings, like a “Still Not Dead” tote bag, along with upcycled wearable art. Browse a zine library and feel a twinge of nostalgia amongst a collection of old cassettes, vinyl, and mystery grab-bag video tapes. The store welcomes folks to experience their wares in a safe manner, along with occasional sale racks set up outside across from the Riffraff patio, or their online store ships anywhere for at-home shopping.
