Like A Local: Sqecial Media

Updated: May 26, 2020

Debates on how “Sqecial” is properly pronounced circulate Lexington, but I have heard both “Sq-uec-ials" and “Skeh-uec-ials.”

On the north side of campus, this shop is a collection of unique jewelry, tapestries, posters, books and so much more. A place that is sometimes overlooked, it's located on the top of The Album and Han Woo Ri next to CD central.

It’s a small space filled with many treasures. If you're like me and enjoy knick-knacks, you will love this place as much as I do.


I have purchased many of my rings and earrings from Sqecial's.

They have an amazing selection of unique rings and jewelry. The best part is they don’t turn your skin green and they are reasonably priced. There are many rings, earrings, necklaces, charms, and nose rings available. They allow you to try on as many rings as you want which is super helpful if you aren’t 100% sure about your size or simply enjoy stacking rings on your fingers.

Spoon rings are sold as well, and I love mine. My two-cartilage piercings are from their selection and I have had them in for 3 years and had zero issues, they were 3 bucks a piece which is a steal.

Yes, I am a big fan of quality and budget of jewelry and this is a great place for it!

Cool Gifts

This is a great place to purchase gifts for people if you’re like me - BROKE - but still want to cough up some money to get people stuff.

They have comical, cool, handmade postcards and cards that you wouldn’t find in Kroger or Hallmarks (Are those still around? ha-ha). Candles, astrology books, small ring holders, toys, bells, house decorations, glasses, and so on.

I have concluded that they have a great crystal collection, which is a little difficult to find here in Lexington and is a pretty and meaningful gift for someone.

I enjoy gifts that I can look at and be reminded of who gave them to me; any décor or pieces I can put in my room are my personal favorites.

Smelly Things

Peculiar incense scents such as Egyptian Rain and fresh Laundry; two of my favorites, fill the shelves. They sell a collection of candles used for meditation and manifestation. I love candles they make your space smell good, DUH, and they are a practical but great gift for people.

I could go on and on about this store, but just go experience it for yourself.
