Is there any other state as adored by its residents as Rhode Island? Maybe it’s because of the small size or the fact that we’re all just a connection or two from knowing one another. Of course there’s the coastline, the cities, the makers, the food. Sara Cannon refers to the adopted state she now happily calls home – along with her husband and young son – as their happy place. “We’re proud to not just be visitors but to say we are locals.” To wit, Cannon has created a line of apparel and goods under the brand The Local Rhody. The company logo features our state’s singular area code within the “O” of LOCAL on white, black, and gray items. Currently there is no brick-and-mortar, but follow along on Instagram (@TheLocalRhody) for updates and order online. “This brand was created to represent our love for this little state and what it means to us. We don’t think you have to live here forever to represent being a local,” Cannon says. “But you do have to love it here.”
