The PRESSED Story started in 2011 when owner Ashley Thompson moved to North Carolina to begin her journey as a military spouse. A creative spirit and a passion for design led her to begin a design company while her husband was deployed overseas. In 2015, Ashley took her love for design, creative marketing experience and retail background and opened PRESSED - A Creative Space. She wanted to create a place for people to be inspired through great design and unique products. Where people can find unique treasures, meet like-minded friends and discover what drives their creativity.
Now located at 120 Hay Street, PRESSED is a retail store that features uniquely curated, beautifully crafted and well designed products. PRESSED also hosts events and creative workshops where you can learn a new creative skill or just hang out with friends in an inspiring space!
