SOUTH carries “carefully chosen and unexpected pieces.” With items ranging from classical to whimsical, this local boutique has something special for every occasion. Plus, thanks to its ever-changing inventory, you never know what will arrive next. Right now, the store has receiving blankets, sea pearl bracelets, red wine glasses, and more.

WomanCraft Gifts

WomanCraft Gifts features the work of local artists from all around the Chapel Hill area. A group of women first opened the shop in 1973 to create a space where local artisans could sell their handmade crafts. Today, 25 artists run the shop. Pieces include journals, original paintings, and coiled fabric bowls. Be sure to check out the “just added” section to see the newest items. In addition to shipping, the shop also offers easy store pickup.

EV Gifts

EV Gifts is a gift shop with an awesome mission. Powered by a neurodiverse staff, this local store hires adults with autism and other developmental disabilities to create beautiful handmade goods. If you’re looking for a great candle, this is the place for you. Hand-poured right here in Chapel Hill, the candles are made with 100% soy wax and premium fragrances. Scents include fresh fig, oak & honey, and hot apple cider. Other items include soap, as well as lip balm made from all-natural ingredients.
