NORTH KINGSTOWN - The Village Faire, which opened last Tuesday in Wickford, is more than just a business. It’s a community center.
The store is a collaborative effort between the artists at The Mill at Shady Lea in North Kingstown and three other artisans from around the state. All told, ten different craftspeople came together to create the waterfront store behind the Beach Rose Café.
“It feels like a full unified eclectic collection,” said Amos Paine, one of the artists from Shady Lea.
