Quintessentially Stylish

If you are from the Raleigh area and have ever had to make a purchase from a bridal registry, then you are probably familiar with Quintessentials. It has been a mainstay in the gift and bridal niche here in town, and in the past two years has gotten a refreshing facelift! Raleigh native Kristen Anderson decided to relocate the store (but only a few doors away in North Hills) and expand the space and their offerings. 
The new space is open and bright, with walls of china and crystal, and gorgeous vignettes styled with the utmost care and style. I have absolutely loved walking by their windows to check out the ever-changing table settings.One of my favorite traditions Kristen has carried into the new space are the bridal registry displays; a place setting is done and accompanied with a place card with the bride and groom's name on it. I love that you can walk through and actually see everyone's setting and can compare and contrast what different brides are doing. Quintessentials carries a wide assortment of gift items as well, from hostess gifts to great gift ideas for your beau or dad, etc. I LOVE the Bird Dog Bay line of ties (and other boy things like boxers and bowties) they have added; they collar stays are packaged in real shotgun shell casings and you have to look at this adorable page on their website entitled "things Gus ate". If you haven't seen the new space it is certainly worth the visit, and they have even done a fabulous website so you can shop online with Quintessentials as well.
