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.
