The Fantastic Umbrella Factory

The Fantastic Umbrella Factory

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

Since then, I’ve become a coffee feen. My favorite thing to do on a Saturday morning is grab coffee with Joe at our favorite shop and walk around town. It’s perfect. I mean… look…

Rhode Island Love: Vegan Restaurant Guide

For being the smallest state, Rhode Island has a ton of veg-friendly restaurants. I’m not sure what I would do without these places – it would be salad and fries for me all the time. Wompwomp.

Instead, I am kinda like the #17 GIF from our Vegan GIF post. Or like this:
