This Rhode Island staple is known for its whimsical, nautically-inspired wares

The Bay Magazine ·

With all the doing you do for other people, you deserve a minute to relax and buy something nice for yourself. What better place than a cute local business with unique goods? Courtyards Ltd in Tiverton is right by Four Corners and offers an eclectic selection with new items every week.

The owner, Sharon Prazak, says that about 85% of the items in the store are US made and include young and emerging artists from RISD and MassArt. “Most of the stuff here you won’t see anywhere else,” says Sharon. “We don’t shop at the usual places.”

Among the unique selections are handmade books, dream catcher jars and an array of nautical and mermaid themed goodies. “We’re known for our mermaids here,” says Sharon. One thing you definitely won’t find anywhere else is their own product line, Sakonnet Memories – silver and gold jewelry cast from Rhode Island seashells that are sure to make a statement.

If the holiday stress took a toll, Courtyards also has a collection of bath and body goods, self-help, inspirational and spiritual books as well as stress-busting products like “Worry Eater” dolls and beautiful sand art. As a hypnotherapist, Sharon makes sure there are plenty of self-care items in stock and keeps the energy of the store happy, relaxed and welcoming.

Courtyards feels more like a home than a shop, and that’s just how Sharon likes it – as do her customers.
