What will customers hear when they shop at Noon?
Besides the frequent banging noise of hammers, drills, and saws coming from our upstairs work studio we have been into songza lately, the cochella playlist is pretty good. unless you come in on a friday….we have reggae fridays here at Noon!

What three shops do you enjoy shopping at in Providence?
Oh boy that’s a tough one…just three?  Small Point Cafe is more of a restaurant than shop but we go there a lot. Great coffee and lunch options. Homestyle is also a favorite – especially if we need a gift for someone who already has everything from our shop. Modern Love …. If we wore nice clothes everyday we would own many more of their shoes…so pretty!

What does Noon specialize in?
We specialize in a couple things. We have a line of hand fabricated silver and gold jewelry as well as a homegoods line consisting of glassware, teatowels, soaps and candles. we also design  a line of custom wedding invitations and letterpressed greeting cards.

If you had to describe yourself as a color – what would you be?
I would be chartreuse…. and I would say poppy for Maie

What inspires you?
People. I think we inspire one other and surrounding ourselves with others who have similar visions and passions.

What’s your go-to gift item?
Since not everyone loves jewelry as much as we do a great safe bet is one of our candles and a tea towel.

What one item in your wardrobe/home can you not live without?
Maie’s would be for sure her Toms! She must have a dozen pairs and can be seen rocking one of them on any given day. Mine would be a flip flops. No brand preference….any pair will do.

What might surprise customers about your business?
Our providence shop is actually our third shop, we have one in San Diego and the Jersey Shores and we wholesale our line of jewelry/home goods to over 200 other shops across the country!

Favorite Song to Work to:
Oh boy, there’s too many…we’ve been listening to a lot of belle and sebastian lately.

Which describes you best?
