What makes it a Rhody Gem?

The minute you step into HŌMbädi, you understand why patrons call shopping here a “mini-vacation.” Everything in this eclectic boutique is about relaxation and fun, from the welcoming scent when you walk through the door to the warm greeting from owners Brenda Owren and Sarah Gardner. Chock-full of a mindful mix of beauty, fashion, and home items, HŌMbädi carries lines that share the founders’ values: community-focused, eco-conscious, and women-led, so you’ll find brands like Corkcicle, Rifle Paper, and Capri Blue on the shelves. Create your own vegan tote with interchangeable straps and handbags from Ahdorned or check out the upcycled one-of-a-kind leather bags for your hard-to-shop-for bestie. Fashionistas will appreciate the collection of cashmere wraps and scarves as well as size-inclusive sweaters and an extensive selection of stylish ponchos. Newly stocked for the holidays are Frasier Fir candles and diffusers from the luxury fragrance company Thymes. Host a private shopping party with your friends, or attend one of their ladies nights or DIY workshops, cocktails included.
