Amelia Smith has always marched to the beat of her own drum. She began working at Different Drummer when her mother purchased the gift shop in 1989. “The shop opened in 1971 and we’re still here,” she says. “That’s a huge accomplishment for a small business in RI.” With a degree in biomedical illustration and experience as a set painter, Amelia loves that she gets to be creative every day. From designing the window displays to creating an enchanting shopping experience, Amelia strives to offer customers the unexpected. “You can spend hours here and not see everything,” she says.
