Our Newport Store is Moving!

As Dakota hinted in our last post, we have a big and wonderful new change for our Newport shop...we are moving! Next month, we will be moving to a new storefront just across Memorial Blvd to 146 Bellevue Ave!  

We have both been so thankful for our home at 190 Bellevue and for the relationships and friendships we have built on the block. Opening this flagship was a turning point for Harper & Tucker and, as we have gone through changes and grown, this shop has remained steadfast. From after-hours sip and shops to bustling summer mornings, 190 Bellevue was our home base and saw us through nearly 3 years of growth. This space will always hold a piece of our heart. Making the choice to move was a hard one, and we have been a little extra sentimental the last few weeks  

But this is what makes our new space on Bellevue all the more exciting...we intuitively feel that this is going to be an even better fit for our next chapter in Newport. Whenever Dakota and I are presented with an opportunity, we weigh pros and cons ad nauseam, challenging ourselves to address everything from the smallest detail to the larger picture and everything in between. We look at numbers and talk scenarios, but it seems as though we often know what we have to do before going through the weeds of the details. A decision not only needs to logically check out, it needs to feel right...the moment we discovered this space was available to us, we knew in our core it was the right move.

146 Bellevue Ave

This corner storefront boasts plentiful windows with streaming sunlight, rich grey hardwood floors, and even more wall space to display our newest brands and styles. We are currently daydreaming about all of the natural afternoon light, and making plans for how we will make this store even more uniquely our own. We are only going a block down the street, so we are thrilled to still call BE//ME our neighborhood, and now we'll be next door to Newport cornerstones such as Farmaesthetics, Pasta Beach, Kristen Coates and around the corner from First Beach, Hotel Viking and the Newport Farmer's Market! 

This truly feels like a turning point for us as we enter into this new decade. From our commitment to sustainable fashion, to revamping our brick and mortar presence in Newport and Providence, it feels like this next chapter is going to be the best yet.

We are ever grateful to our friend Molly Kirby from Kirby Properties for being such a force for us over the Holidays, and for working tirelessly with us to make this move a reality. We also are feeling extra thankful to Newport and our little neighborhood for supporting us, and following us as we navigate this crazy ride.  We can’t tell you how energized and excited we are - and cannot wait to welcome you into our new Newport home! 

We will continue to keep you posted on our store opening, move-out party, new arrivals and more over the next few weeks! Thank you so much for continuing this journey for us and we cannot wait to see you at 146 Bellevue soon enough! 

 

xo,

NS

Arnhem: Painted Hearts

ARNHEM has landed at Harper & Tucker! If you love SPELLJEN'S PIRATE BOOTY or SHOW ME YOUR MUMU, we know you are about to fall in love. All the way from Byron Bay, Australia, Arnhem embodies wanderlust and the bohemian spirit. We love the line's bold, playful colorways in floral prints and effortless, breezy silhouettes. Arnhem feels like the Australian coast the brand calls home, and will bring a dose of bright, sunny Byron to wherever you are.
