Happy PVDFest! Happy Pride! Happy Beach Bumming! Happy Shopping!


It is finally June, which marks the start of many activity-packed PVD weekends. It is the season when all of us are coming out of our caves, allowing us the opportunity to soak up the sun (/humidity). ‘Tis the season for new friendships, flings, and impromptu photoshoots.

Luckily for us all, this weekend is the fourth annual PVDfest, a city-wide festival jam-packed with local artists, performers, and vendors doing what they do best! Shopping with us is a must this weekend (wink wink), but before or after, be sure to check out the many events spread throughout the city. Hang out in the Creative Capital as “live music, dance, food, and visual art installations transform the city in a four-day, multi-arts take-over of public spaces, parks, and outdoor stages in the heart of Providence, Rhode Island”. Sounds mighty wholesome to me!

Keep all your goods safe and your spine in line with a festive Fjallraven Kanken Backpacks, like this one in Birch Green –  It is guaranteed to prep you for those long city walks!


Speaking of festiveness, this month is also Pride Month! This is a time for folks in the LGBTQ+ community to celebrate themselves, each others, and the trailblazers (past, present, and future) who have secured us our rights and freedoms. In the invincible spirit of Marsha P. Johnson, use this time to be as kind, understanding, and empathetic as possible.

We also have rainbow umbrellas, if you’re into that. Use it is a rain shield or parasol to protect yourself and your loved ones!


If you and your pals have done your festival time and need to decompress in a more serene place, Rhode Island offers endless opportunities to hit the beach! Step away from the city crowd and take a long walk along the shore.

BONUS: If you’re really looking to get funky, take one of our untamed OneLogFire logs along. It burns from within, for an uncontested two hours! Its undying flame makes for the best small romantic getaway, or a seaside rager with your best pals, depending on the day. Bring some marshmallows, and unleash your inner flame.


It’s too nice out for you folks to sit here and listen to me ramble on, so go on, get out! Make new memories, stay fabulous, and burn baby burn!
