    Nope.  We had to move there last summer (2005) when we lost
the lease on our old space on Eagle Street (real-estate speculators
bought the building at the height of the RE bubble and were going
to turn the old mill into overpriced condos; it's still empty and
abandoned now) -- we've always been right in Providence.  You may
be thinking about RICM (the Rhode Island Computer Museum) which
used to be in North Kingstown and now is mostly out at Quonset

    I don't recall off the top of my head whether it's called the
"Big Top" or not, but there's a big flea-market just about every
weekend (it makes parking for RCS/RI a pain).
