Small Business Spotlight: OMO, Jewelry & Gifts

I love supporting small local businesses, especially women owned! Let me introduce you to OMO Jewels & Gifts; tucked in the heart of Avondale on the way to Watch Hill, RI, it is the perfect gift shop.

“OMO founder Joanna Papineau-Allen believes that life should be lived beautifully each and every day. As the former buyer for the beloved Sun Up Gallery for 20 years, Joanna took the entrepreneurial leap in 2016 and opened OMO – a celebration of her personal style, her love of color and whimsy, and her admiration of American handcrafted design.”

Walking in the front door you are greeted with a jewel box of colors and textures. A self proclaimed lover of color, Joanna has stocked her store with easy gifts, fun accessories, “wear it every day” clothing (see photos!), unique jewelry and fabulous housewares.

Fantastic hostess gifts or just a little something to spruce up your own outdoor entertaining.

It is such an easy spot to pop in to grab a hostess gift (special chocolates, a gorgeous handmade ceramic platter, puzzles), baby gift (Jelly Cat stuffed friends, books and bibs), or a special treat for yourself (clothing, jewels, housewares… I could go on!).

So many fabulous note cards and all the Jelly Cat! stuffed friends! Those are my kids’ favorite!

Some of her carefully curated designers include Suzy Landa, Jamie Joseph, Paul Morelli, Frank & Eileen, Kinross Cashmere, Lisa Todd, Jill Rosenwald and Houston Llew. She is constantly searching out new and interesting merchandise for the store. 

I adore this camo sweater, necklace and little navy cross body bag (see on me below!).


Puzzles, candles and note cards… perfect to keep you busy while you tuck in this Fall.


I love that Joanna focuses on American artists, craftsman and designers. The turquoise necklace above is currently on my wish list!


All the bangles! The BuDha Girl bangles are my FAVORITE. I wear them every day!
So many jewelry options, something for every one.
Perfect assortment of little pick me ups… I love the “Hug From A Distance” candle!!!
I adore Jill Rosenwald and would take home every single one of these pieces… I also have that incredibly soft orange throw, the best!


All the treats!
Who doesn’t love a card from a friend? This was the perfect reminder to me I need to send more!

Joanna hopes to have her online store up this Fall (, but in the meantime check out her Instagram where she posts updates of the fabulous in store stock . She will happily ship and also can put together custom gift baskets to send out! Perfect for a pick me up! 


How good is this sweater?
The front… this would carry you through the winter. And don’t forget those bangles!


Vibrant blue glass trade beads, OMO also has them in bunch of other colors!
I immediately bought this black denim button down and plan to wear it with EVERYTHING this Fall. OMO has a ton of different colors in store!
This cashmere sweater is divine! The pop of orange is so good.
Cozy sweatshirt with zip detail at neck… how cute? And yep, the bangles.
This corduroy shirt is SO soft and the ruffle detail at the neck is fabulous. Also, comfortable pull on black pants that still look put together! And yet again… the bangles!
I love this boxy camo sweater and it’s reversible! A small cross-body bag is a must for Fall… when you go into a store you don’t want a big bag you have to put down!
One more shot of this shirt because I love it so much!

Stop in for a visit at 95 Watch Hill Road Westerly, RI 02891! If you see anything you absolutely need to have (like that striped sweater…) give the store a call at 860-961-4678. AND, for all AMH readers OMO is offering 10% off your purchase when you mention this blog post!
