Hi friends! This is a local post – if you are from Rhode Island, then you probably already know about the Fantastic Umbrella Factory in Charlestown. If not, then you’re going to want to go ASAP – trust me!! This is literally RI’s greatest gem. The entire property is pure magic – from a bamboo field to botanical gardens to henna to arty stores to a delicious cafe… and everything else in between. I’ve been coming here since freshmen year of high school, and I always make a point to visit during the summer especially. It’s unlike anything else, and it’s full of whimsy and treasures.
Also – if you’ve ever said to me, “I love your earrings/rings/necklace!” then just know it was prrrroooobably from here ;) I have basically bought out the whole store over the years. It’s also where I grab all my tapestries, wind chimes, and sundresses.
I just can’t say enough good things about this! Words won’t do it justice, so I am going to just plop all of these photos on here. If I had to choose what my heaven would look like… well, here it is, folks. <3
If you’re not local and ever have a chance to come visit us here in RI, do yourself a favor and add the Umbrella Factory to your to-do list. I promise, you will not be sorry ;) Gorgeous. Have a beautiful Monday <3 xx bianca
