  • Big News- Meet Bed & Butter!

    Guys, it's all happening. We're opening a new brand & store right down the street from RPS in Ann Arbor! Circle__Shape_Logo Color us happy (and crazy), but we can't wait to introduce you to Bed & Butter—a home and gift store opening late this summer-- we're shooting for August 29th. At B&B,  we believe that the key to beautiful style or a great gift is to have or give only that which brings utility or beauty into the home. You’ll see this quote, which serves as our mission statement and guiding inspiration, popping up throughout the store, this blog, our website, and social media - we hope it’s something you’ll be inspired to live by as well. After opening Rock Paper Scissors in 2012, we fell even more deeply in love with the idea of giving a perfect, beautiful, and purposeful gift. When approached about the space at 333 S. Main Street, we felt it was the perfect opportunity to share our passion for beauty and utility in the home with the Ann Arbor community that we’re so proud to be a part of. Also, we'll be offering a gift registry and are really pumped to have the opportunity to help paper your big day at RPS and help you enjoy all of life's little details at B&B. We’ve carefully selected our very favorite home goods and gifts to bring to Bed & Butter, from the comfy throw you’ll cuddle up with on fall weekends to watch the Wolverines play Notre Dame, to the perfect place setting for you and your partner to celebrate your first married Thanksgiving, to that soft blanket your new baby needs to go to sleep at night, and that story your little ones want to hear just one more time.  At Bed & Butter, we’re committed to curating a selection of unique items to help you experience each wonderful detail of life with your family and friends. Our adventure starts here and now as we begin to select the details of Bed & Butter - and we invite you to join us for the journey. Follow us at @shopbedandbutter on Instagram and Facebook to check out the behind the scenes (and absolute craziness) of opening a new store, and let us know what you’d like to see adorning the shelves on our new Main Street location (and hopefully in your homes)! Hope to see you soon!
