I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and take time to be grateful for everyone and everything that surrounds you. Of course, by Black Friday, you might be ready to shake yourself from that turkey tryptophan coma and get a leg up on Christmas shopping. We’re so fortunate on Aquidneck Island to have so many unique shops that you can find just about everything you need. Below you’ll find some fabulous local deals.
