The River's Edge...On Consignment!!!

I met Jim Bradley at the Aspray Boathouse holiday show in December. His display was parallel to mine, so we had a chance to talk in between all the action. I knew I liked him when he made a joke about my giving him my last double chocolate Milano cookie. Yes, people, of course, I gave him the cookie.

Jim and his lovely wife, Nikki have a fabulous shop in town (Pawtuxet Village rocks), called The River's Edge Flowers & Gifts. The River's Edge Flowers utilizes only the freshest of the world's flowers, exceeding the ordinary and producing lasting memories. Whether it is a bouquet going to your sweetheart just to show you love them or a large event, such as a wedding.You can see from the photos just how fresh and gorgeous their flowers are. I was over there yesterday taking photos when Jim came in with a couple of boxes (see pic above), which he just picked up from the airport. Included, were Gerberer daisy's, which were like Siamese twins, each stem

was a double flower!

The store supports local artists as well where work is sold on consignment. I brought some of my framed 5x7 photos over earlier in the week. Nikki and Jim picked 5 and have hung them in unique spots throughout the store. They have so many artists on display,

including a large array of jewelry, from delicate wire work to scrabble piece pendants, handmade soaps (yeah for StellaMarie), ceramics, cards, handmade aprons, for children as well, unique handmade mobiles, candles, stained glass, paintings, and their own creations of melted vinyl records to be used

for bowls! .

The River's Edge is a bright spot in our Pawtuxet Village! You can find Nikki & Jim Bradley at 2172 Broad Street, Pawtuxet Village, RI. 401-941-9972.

You can contact me through my Etsy shop, Lilleypics, for any questions you may have about the framed photos!!!
