CHAPELHILL

Branching Out To Local Classics

9:00 AM

I'm a strong supporter of the "Shop Local" and "Shop Small" movement. Why?

  1. These business owners have worked hard to establish their very own business / brand. Now that's an accomplishment to pay attention to. 
  2. It's guaranteed that you will score a unique piece / product 
  3. The chance to befriend and gain inspiration from these awesome local business owners 

My heart for adventure and longing for new experiences brings me to...

spend each weekend pursuing a different environment. This time (to my luck!), it was a local shop. After perusing the ever so charming Southern Seasons, a few paces into University Mall brought me to this store called Night Gallery - Branching Out

Located at: 201 S Estes Dr. University Mall Chapel Hill, NC 


I was awed by the moment I set foot in the store. By this dazzling set-up of lights and ornaments. I mean absolute perfection. 



There are unique and timeless treasures that you can find at this place. If you're looking for some Christmas gifts I'd highly recommend checking out this store! 





This gorgeous red top has the perfect material for a (normal) December night. This weekend the temperature ranged from a high of 65-70 degrees. How crazy is that?! 

My nude kitty heels are so comfortable. I am not one that can walk around in 5 inch heels for a long amount of time, so these pumps have been my go-to of late. I couldn't find the ones I'm wearing but I've linked similar ones! 




What did you do this weekend? Any local shops that are your favorite?

  4. Shopping small is great! I couldn't agree more with the notion that the pieces you find shopping small are nothing shy of unique.

  5. There are so many local businesses by me + I really do try my hardest to shop there over major retailers because like you said, I know these business owners work extra hard for what they have…and you're always destined to find something super unique! This holiday spot by you looks adorable. x Nicole | www.changeanddress.com
