Although my garden has proven disappointing this year (an attack by Japanese Beetles finished off the last of my tomato plants), I still love a good gardening store. East Side Eden goes above and beyond your typical gardening store, as is evident by their Rhode Island Monthly Magazine awards in two categories; Best Hostess Gifts and Best Urban Gardening Supplies . This store consists of a small shop attached to a large greenhouse. The shop stocks everything from jewelry to stationary, while in the greenhouse you can find an abundance of plants, succulents and gardening supplies.
**Many thanks to Susan for welcoming me to the shop and taking me through the interesting background of her life and Alexandra's path! Also note- there is an end-of-the-season, 50% off sale going on at East Side Eden, July 31st through August 4th!!
