Spring brings with it not only the return of sunshine, warm air, and green foliage, but also a crop of new stores and, therefore, reasons to shop. Egg & Dart, located here in Newport, RI, already has us smitten with its fresh perspective and unique art and home wares. Previously situated on Bellevue Avenue, they’ve just moved downtown onto Bowen’s Wharf, expanded their offerings, and updated their online boutique.
Owners Chris Wylie and Kristen Coates take great care in seeking out unusual products from small vendors whose items are not widely unavailable. In addition to Wylie’s magnificent paintings on reclaimed wood and metal and Coates’s hand-thrown pottery, Egg & Dart sells a line of namesake table linens; bedding and pillows by Matteo; an array of coffee table books and paper goods; and irresistible potted herbs and fresh flowers. Full of bright, sweet, and unexpected goods, Egg & Dart feels like spring incarnate. Stop in whenever you need a breath of fresh air.
