Best Best Gift Shop for Monomaniacs

Think attic of eccentric aunt. The aunt with the oddball taste, not the dingbat. Treasures of Newport takes pride in “a loose nautical theme,” inspired by the pirates that predated the socksless J-class skippers who tack and heel in Newport Harbor these days. There are books on pirates and ghosts as well as less exotic things Newport. Antique maps and New England quilts. Notecards and photos of scenic sights by Dalas G. Molerin. CDs by Newport musicians Peter Piltz and Matthew Quinn. A flip-flop pendant necklace by local jeweler Custom Swarovski. The featured offerings, however, are bath products — manufactured on-site, to assure freshness and high profit margin. You’ve got your salts and gels, your room spray and “silk powder” — which is somehow “inspired by our own local landmarks,” no less. (Breton Point Hairspray, anyone?) 182 Thames Street, Newport | 401.849.8636 |
