Only In Rhode Island has been named Woman-Owned Business of the year, "Best of New England" by Yankee Magazine,and we were inducted in to the "Best of Rhode Island Hall of Fame" by RI Monthly Magazine. In addition to numerous other distinctions, we have been honored with the Newport County Chamber of Commerce Excellence in Business Award as the Small Business of the Year. We are truly humbled by these honors, and grateful for the recognition these organizations offer to independent businesses throughout the state and region.

Our goal at Only In Rhode Island is to provide you with the simplest, most satisfying way to shop for RI made products, RI gifts, and RI gift baskets. We welcome your comments, thoughts, and suggestions, as we are always working to improve our operations.

Our website offers many of the things found in our Newport store, including numerous handcrafted one-of-a-kind pieces. This means that once the item is sold (either in the store or online) it will be removed from the site. Therefore, if you see it on the site, we should have it in stock.

SHIPPING In shipping domestic orders, Only In Rhode Island prefers to utilize the United States Postal Service, as we have found this to be the most efficient, cost-effective shipping option available. Should you require special shipping options, just let us know in the "comments" section of our order form and we will do our best to accommodate you.

All international orders (and those to HI and AK) are shipped through USPS. Charges for international shipping are calculated on an individual basis. Only In Rhode Island charges for shipping costs only, we do not add any additional fees for "handling." The cost to ship your order is calculated based on the package weight and the location being shipped to.

In order to keep costs low and to conserve valuable natural resources, we choose to reuse and recycle all packaging materials.

In the unlikely event that you should need to return an item, we will pay for return shipping if the item is damaged or defective. Because it may sometimes be difficult to get a true sense of an item based on a website image, we will deal with returns based on general dissatisfaction on a case by case basis. When the customer's request is reasonable, he or she can expect a reasonable response.

We can guarantee delivery by a certain date (ie. Christmas, birthdays, etc.) only if the order is made five (5) days in advance. Otherwise, Express Overnight shipping is available at an additional cost. For any other questions regarding shipping, please feel free to e-mail us.
