Rhody Gem: Now in Warren, Carmen & Ginger is a Department Store of Vintage

August 2023

What it is:

A shop selling all things vintage.


Where to find it:

Recently moved to Warren (after three years at Tiverton Four Corners, and many more in Arcade Providence), turn onto Child Street from Main Street/Route 114 and look for the hanging round orange and teal sign.


What makes it a Rhody Gem?

Owner Christine Francis, who founded her business in 2013, knows her stuff and how to display it. Think of Carmen & Ginger as a department store of retro treasures with areas designated for like-items. “We carry a little bit of everything but with a focus on vintage jewelry and accessories, cowboy boots, linens, housewares, holiday collectibles, and cat and dog-related items,” says Francis. Open in Warren since May, she is already feeling at home, noting the welcoming community. “We’re surrounded by other fabulous retailers, restaurateurs, and artists! There’s plenty of parking available in this very walkable neighborhood, but we’re also along the bike path and on RIPTA #60 bus line.”
