Shop Local: Rail & Anchor - Royal Oak


The other day, Dave and I had lunch at one of our favorite places, Cafe Muse in Downtown Royal Oak, and stopped to do some shopping on the way.  This was the first time I walked past Rail & Anchor and the items I could see from the window got me really excited to go inside.

We walked in to find a charming store full of unique & trendy pieces displayed in the loveliest way.

I loved this display table of succulents and air plants. Perfectly set up to create a unique gift!

Air plants do not need soil to grow, just soak in water once a week or mist twice a week and they will do well. These are great to put in a vintage bowl, on top of a stack of books or anywhere really.

I think I might need go back for one of these brass urchins.

There was a beautiful apothecary section with lotions, soaps & candles. Would make some great hostess gifts!

We picked up a couple of gifts and they offered to wrap them in rustic kraft paper with our choice of color thread...I love when I don't have to wrap gifts!! I meant to snap a few pics of our purchases but haven't done it yet so I will share soon. I appreciate the small local businesses, especially ones this well curated & reasonably priced. I have a feeling I will be doing a lot of shopping here in the future!

How's your holiday shopping going??
