Welcome To Different Drummer

Susan Amelia Smith has always been most comfortable around art. Having gone to art school in the mid 1960's, she has expressed herself in many facets of art: making clothes for her children, painting and even crafting her own greeting card line.


In 1980, she found a home in the small store in Wickford Village, Different Drummer, and became its owner in 1988.


Susan has had her philosophy since purchasing the store-she wants all customers to find something appealing whether they intend to spend $10 or $100. Because of this, Different Drummer carries many one-of-a-kind items: some beautiful, some silly, always unique.

This web site has a selection of items from the shop; many of them are one-of-a-kind creations. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information on any item in the shop. We're open and here to help 7 days per week.
