What makes it a Rhody Gem?

“My goal was to open a shop where every person who walked in could find a gift or outfit at the price point they are looking to spend, so we carry a range,” says owner, former art teacher, and mom of two, Tara Barkovitz. “I value soft fabric, quality design, and unique styles that you can’t find anywhere else.” In addition to carrying brands like Angel Dear, Me & Henry, Colored Organics, and Olive & Scout, Barkovitz has items from smaller indie brands and individual makers and artists. Embroidery services are available for personalizing fabric goods with monograms, and did we mention free gift wrapping? “I love what I do and what I have built with this shop. It is such a pleasure chatting with grandparents, parents, expecting parents, and relatives about their little ones. When you’re shopping for a baby or child you love, there are only smiles!”
