Johnny Cakes and Happy Times 3/2/2010

I have been to the Fantastic Umbrella Factory over the years and find that although changes have occurred, they have not ruined the place. Just as a forest or woods grows new trees and changes based on the environment around it, the factory has evolved to fit this world. It began as a hippie-type commune selling wares of the people who inhabited the land. I remember buying my first omlet pan in one of their stores after a wonderful meal of johnny cakes. I can still get the johnny cakes, but the pan would cost a lot more than I paid. There are things now to cleanse your home from negativity like sage, herbs, bells, and other things that one might call New Age, but that have been used by grandmothers of long ago of Western and Eastern Indian families. Some things may have come from China, but like the items from India or Peru they are quaint additions which I would gladly bring into my home to learn the culture. This United States has become a multicultural place and the Factory has kept pace while still retaining its quaint Rhode Island atmosphere and transporting me back to when I used to visit in my younger years buying incense and walking among the wildflowers. Don't count it a loss. It still has much to give. more

losing steam 10/15/2008

The Fantastic Umbrella Factory is not as fanstastic as it once was. Originally an artist colony selling handcrafted pottery, glassware, leathergoods, and so much more - it has unfortunately been neglected and the arts forgotten (replaced with asian junk). Small Axe is still wonderful and worth the visit, but the rest of the place has been sorely neglected and in dire need of TLC. more

This place is great! 8/1/2005

Pulling into the parking lot of the Umbrella Factory makes you wonder where you are. A flower garden? A petting zoo? A store full of wonderful unique gifts. Well the answer is all of the above! Amidst a beautiful botanical jungle lies 3 or 4 little stores selling the most unique things from penny candy to soap and hand blown glass to Emu feathers. The prices range from super cheap to pricey and you could find a gift for anyone- grandma, your best friend, your bosses sister in law...anyone. Kids love the Umbrella Factory. It has a couple of Koi fountains, and some Emus, sheep and chickens that eat grains out of ice cream cones that you buy for $.50. It's a fun and cheap way to spend a couple of hours. more
