Ashley from PRESSED BRANDING is what I call the design and branding QUEEN of Fayetteville. If you want to see a milspouse entrepeneur in full effect and who is doing her thing, this is a person you need to watch and check out. Ashley is responsible for many of the websites and logos you see in Downtown Fayetteville businesses. She has that chic, modern, hip, eye for branding and all of her logos and websites are super aesthetically pleasing. It’s because of that I was so excited when I happened to be surfing Facebook and saw that she had launched her quaint hip gift shop called PRESSED NC…A Creative Space.



The Gift Shop

Stalk the PRESSED FB page or their Instagram and you will instantly see why I was dying to get down there. If you are into instagram worthy planners, awesome prints with inspiring quotes, artisan candies, jewelry, handcrafted  and sourced from local artists, plus all things just pretty with a bit of a hip trend to it …then this is the place to be.  

Uniquely Curated Stationery, Gifts and Home Goods

IMG_3054I already love visiting downtown Fayetteville during the holidays and I heard from a little birdy that the PRESSED shop will be having some amazing holiday trinkets and pieces coming in for the holiday season . These days I’m all about purchasing gifts with meaning and I love that I can go here and find one of a kind items to give friends and family. IMG_3049 IMG_3053 IMG_3066 pressedplanner Other fun items sold there included artisan soaps made in small batches and a selection of different types of note cards, Thank you cards and even some holiday cards. This is something that made me happy because I think we have gotten away from the art of a simple thank you note or a hello how are you doing card. I think offering products like these will make people want to get back into the handwriting spirit. IMG_3051 IMG_3055 Her prints were my favorite because I love being surrounded by inspiration. IMG_3067 Additionally, PRESSED sells other fun items such as Adult Coloring Books. Matter of fact, her new shipment came in yesterday. So if you’ve been looking for some different ones, do visit and get yours.

What Did I Buy?

I certainly brought my fair share of items yesterday, but my absolute favorite was the “Haters Gonna Hate” mug. I had two cups of coffee from it yesterday!


PRESSED is located at 120 Hay St in Downtown Fayetteville. Hurry and stop in and you may still be able to pick up a free October calendar printable like the one above. After you’re done shopping there, be sure to walk a few stores down to the left and grab a red velvet latte from “The Coffee Cup” or make a left and directly next door to grab an amazing Taco from “Off The Hook Tacos”.
