The Perfect Gift

Instagram:  #RockHousePerfectGift

Let’s talk gifts.   You know the usual… a picture frame, new socks, a subscription to a magazine you never get.  It’s sweet, but those gifts are not going to make any real impressions.  Let’s talk about gifts that really make an impact… thoughtful, unusual, highly sought after, and meaningful ones.  We have been working on curating a collection of gifts that are sure to please! 

Let's jump right into The Rock House Antique's Perfect Gift Guide: 

1) Dough Bowls, Cutting Boards and Tobacco Baskets:

2) Barware:

Decanters, Seltzer bottles, glassware, shakers, champagne buckets,

and wine carafe's all make great gifts! 

3)  Silver and Silver-Plate: 

4) Brass: 


Decorative Brass animals, bookends, candlesticks, tables, stools and really, brass ANYTHING is hot right now.  Brass is back and it makes a great gift! 

5) Books: 

We have a great selection of books.  We currently are stocking the much anticipated "John Derian Picture Book" which can be pulled apart and framed, or kept bound for a coffee table book. Our book dealer searches out books that specifically appeal to our customers.  He has rare books about South Carolina, the region, the South, artists, designers, history of furniture, regional biographies, picture books, books of historical significance and so on.   Some dealers have stacks of Interior Design, Fashion or Gardening and Floral Design coffee table books.   We have collections of decorative books, such as vintage Reader's Digest books.  Of course, there are antique book sets throughout the shop.  We have one customer who started the tradition of giving her grandchildren each an Antique book each year to build their collections. 

6) Vintage Florentine Boxes: 


Vintage Florentine Boxes make for a thoughtful and unique gift.  Fill it with special chocolates, treats or jewelry!  There are also plenty of antique wooden boxes throughout the shop. 

7) Pillows or Art and Jewelry:

8) Candles, Treats, Serving Pieces and Home Fragrances: 

Young Plantations snacks are from Florence, SC, while the Slate serving pieces are pieces of the original slate roof from The SC School of the Deaf and Blind, polished and sealed to be used for serving. 

9) For The Man in Your Life: 

10. China: 

Rose Medallion, Blue & White and Imari are always appreciated! 

We of course offer MANY other options and would love for you to come in so we can help you find the perfect gift.
