St. Johnimals is a pretty neat little pet shop located over in Wharfside Village. It also happens to be the pet shop that was mentioned on the House Hunters episode that featured Rob and Ken from Rhode Island. If you recall, they were looking for a small fixer upper. (You can read more about that here.) Well they opened and since listed St. Johnanimals for sale. It’s a pretty good opportunity for an animal lover. Here are the details from its listing:

We really like Nest & Company. It’s a funky little shop near the back of Mongoose Junction that carries a variety of fun items dedicated to the sand and sea (among other items offered for sale.) If I were interested in owning a boutique, this may be the one I’d go for. Here are its details:

Located at Mongoose Junction, Nest & Company is in a high-traffic location beside several boutique and fine dining establishments. Within the Nest, lies luxury, beauty and peace. Nest & Company on finding delicate, exquisite items made from top-quality materials.

  1. Leslie is right about st johnimals. The owner from Stt recently closed the shop, took all the inventory which I found on e-bay and Definitly owes one person money and has been rumored to owe many others… The store has been shut down now for more than a week after he ran the business into the ground for the past 8 months
