Shore Soap Company
302 Thames St., Newport
Husband and wife team Jake and Steph Kopper started experimenting with making natural soaps in their home kitchen, got hooked, and The Shore Soap Company was born. Inspired by the simplicity of their surroundings and lifestyle, the couple wanted to create natural, high-end products that were affordable and sustainable. The soaps became so popular that the line has expanded to include candles, moisturizers, scrubs, and more. The Kopper’s are passionate about the environment and avoid harmful chemicals when crafting their products.
Rib & Rhein
86 William St., Bellevue
Shop owners Erin and Thomas Ribeiro emblazoned “anglo-indo-waspy” on their boutique walls, and they take this declaration of style to heart, bringing brands like Carven, Charlotte Olympia, and The Row to the city’s Yacht Club set. Beyond the selection—caftans for women and tweed jackets and bright polos for men—the additional perks like in-house tailoring, personal lookbooks, and wardrobe consultation bring the mantra home.
Picklee on Spring (Closed)

144 Bellevue Ave., Bellevue
Styled like an old-fashioned apothecary, this shop, with its all-natural, eco-friendly line of skincare products is anything but stodgy. Stock up on their handmade soaps and bath salts (great hostess gifts) and treat yourself to one of their transformative facials.
Cottage & Garden
9 Bridge St., Downtown
Regardless of whether you actually possess a cottage or garden, you’ll most likely walk away with a little (or big) something from this inspiring indoor and outdoor decor store—or, at the very least, a few ideas for decorating your own place.
