Located about a block away from The Armory in East Greenwich, this unique shop boasts a small window display on Main Street showcasing their eclectic wares.

What makes it a Rhody Gem?

Come for the eye-catching trolls, handmade exclusively for the shop by a Danish family residing in the Smoky Mountains; stay for the variety of gifts occupying every corner of the space. From tapestries, incense, handmade purses, and bold jewelry styles to mermaids, dragons, and imported treasures, The Troll Shop has something for everyone. A metaphysical section of the shop carries supplies for enthusiasts of the mystical arts, including tarot cards, crystal balls, and candles. Since 1976, aside from a hiatus in the ‘90s, the shop has striven to bring creative, unique products to the community.
