Rhody Gem: Wise Old Bird Marketplace

January 2021


What it is:

A nice complement to The Woods Yoga, which houses it, the market is packed with yoga gear and self-care finds like mats, specialty teas, and soaps, along with fun gifts, art, and jewelry.


Where to find it:

Fittingly, The Woods Yoga is a hop, skip, and a jump away from Lincoln Woods State Park, along Old Louisquisset Pike, and nestled inside the lobby you’ll find the Wise Old Bird.


What makes it a Rhody Gem?

Whether you’re treating yourself to some retail therapy after a vigorous workout or just stopping by to peruse the quirky collection, the small marketplace is a happy surprise to discover – and most of the merchandise has a far broader appeal than just yoga and fitness. From a line of luxury alpaca products to abstract art and candles with motivational messages, owner Christine Maguire curates the collection around pieces that will put a smile on your face: “It’s a cheerful and friendly place where you leave feeling like a million bucks, even if you only spent $3!” The creative offering has also helped to sustain the yoga studio through various phases of COVID restrictions and support makers by stocking lots of locally made goods. And if you’re looking for a book on meditation or a supplement to your yoga practice, Wise Old Bird is a great choice for that, too.
