Quick! Tips for Providence, RI?

Hello kids,

I am thinking about swingin' by Providence, Rhode Island early next week for a couple days. I've never been there before and was wondering if anyone had any must see or do tips for visiting? Any help will be much appreciated!

i used to sell my goods years ago at a gallery called "oop"
it was very cute and hip.
that might be a fun place to see, although I have never seen it in person.......

i dont have any tips for providence, but if you decide to visit newport or places south of prov, i have a ton of tips! besides, everywhere in rhode island only takes 20 minutes to get to. it's worth the trip out of providence. newport is (amazingly) gorgeous. and dont get me started on taking the ferry to block island or visiting the flying horse carousel in watch hill (and the shops).

c- I just checked out their website, it looks like a fun place to check out!

Jill- Thanks for your comments! Newport sounds awesome, maybe I can try to stop there! It sounds like it would be a great place to visit when it gets warmer!

Hey, Marilyn! It's been about a year since you sent Teppy Cupcake to live with us close to Providence, RI, so she has some tips for you ; ) The east side is probably the most fun, particularly Thayer street shops (try Shades Plus for kawaii and Pie in the Sky for Cram Cream) and Wayland Square. There is the RISD museum, too. There is no longer an OOP! store on Thayer; but there is one still at Providence Place Mall. Catherine is right, you would like it. The mall has some good restaurants, especially Cheesecake Factory and close to the mall is Union Station Brewery. Heading back towards the east side 3 Steeple Street is a good place to eat.
One last shop you may love is on Broadway. It's called "Rocket to Mars" it's all vintage trinkets with tons of great kithcen stuff, probably my favorite shop in Providence. Hope you have fun!

Don't forget Federal Hill (the Italian neighborhood, home of the Providence mafia) Pastiche was always my favorite place for dessert. If you're on the East Side and feel like taking a walk there are lots of beautiful big old houses to look at, especially around Brown University. Wickenden is another good street to walk down near there. I used to live in Providence, now in the Boston area. I just started reading your blog after seeing your stuff at the Bizarre Bazaar. Loving your posts so far!

I went for the day (yesterday) and had a great time! Thanks for the tips! I printed them out and hunted the places down, it was fun, like a treasure hunt! I will post all the pictures soon!

Go see my friend at Figments in Providence, her name is Peggy. She has some cute Japanese things you may really love. The shop is BEAUTIFUL and next door there's a great little coffee shop. Also, make sure you hit Butterfields on Westminster, really big and nice store. Look on my blog beneath Providence links - I have more goodies there. :)
