Seaside Treasures Arrive in South Kingstown!
I purchased Frills in September of 2018 from Roslyn Birke when the store would need to change locations a fourth time and she was eager to move on. In May of 2019 I opened the store with Ginny Crossen as my manager. Ginny is a painter and jewelry designer and her artwork inspired us to seek and highlight other local artisans. She introduced me to James Corey who owns RI Local Woodworks and his Beautiful Cutting Boards, Cheese Boards and serving trays were so popular this summer, we asked for more and will be adding amazing tables this year, all from his exotic woods. In the past we have featured art work by David Curtin, Sea Glass & Wampum necklaces by Beverly Spicer. Original Jewelry & Crystal’s from Tracy Terry, Sea Glass collections from Lynn Chase, The very popular Organic Soaps by The Blue Sister and new this year is Photography by Kate Salvi on cards to frame or send.
During our third and current year, we were aware that the building we were in had been sold and changes would be needed with no time line available. With encouragement and advice from our loyal customers, we made the change to a full time store and are very happy to be situated in The Village of South County Commons. This is a popular, ever growing and changing community and we are excited about our future here.
We maintain a Boho/Hippie theme with truly unique items for gifts or personal use. We want your experience here to be an adventure, each and every time, never knowing what you’ll see or need.
