Benefits to Shopping Locally

Here are a few good reasons to consider shopping at Rhody Craft 100 - apart from the fabulous handmade goodness we offer.

At Rhody Craft 100, the person at the register is also one of our artists. You will receive top shelf customer service and all of your questions about the work in the store can be answered by the artist, herself.

Our artists probably listen to the same NPR station that you do. We pride ourselves on being 100% local.

Items made locally reduce our community's carbon footprint. Most of the materials used in the goods sold at Rhody Craft 100 were purchased at the local level and many of our items are eco-friendly and made from recycled materials.

We support Providence Everett Dance Theater, an after-school performing arts program that provides professional arts training for Providence's youth.

Local shops value your business more.

Shopping local allows you to stimulate your local economy.

Local shops give you choices you don't have at the big chain stores.

Local shops add character and uniqueness to our community.

Soap Pie

Looking for something to bring to Thanksgiving dinner at the family’s house? Aunt Helen already called dibbs on the green bean casserole? Why not bring a couple slices of Soap Pie for the hostess – and just think – no calories!

Opening Day, Hooray!

Many thanks to all the fine folks who came by on our Opening Day! We were jammed packed from the minute we opened the door until the time we closed. The place was fun and festive all day and to those who said the secret password, Super-Duper, we hope you liked your gift. We'll be posting a new password for this Saturday on Friday.

We are pleased-as-punch that EVERYONE in the group had sales, and we are excited as all get out at the speed to which our little venture has left the starting gate.

I can't help but add that Super Pig Episode #1 sold out in the first hour! Providence appreciates emerging artists like no where else!
