Slap Happy Blues - Bald Head Blues Opens in Five Points Raleigh

Your daily routine is starting to resemble that of a hibernating bear. Beat the rainy day blues by shopping at Raleigh's new Bald Head Blues. It will bring a smile to our face!

Bald Head Blues a well-made, well-priced clothing line which can take you from the golf course, to the city streets, to football games, to the State Fair with ease, has just opened its first 'off-island' retail boutique at 2003 Fairview Rd. in the heart of Five Points, Raleigh.

This store brings together the finest men's and women's specialty apparel with a distinctive new classic Americana feeling, but with a twist. Crested logos, needlepoint flip-flops, nautical pieces, golf shirts and needlepoint belts all lend to a coastal feel. Isn't it great to bring that positive, ocean vibe with you wherever you go?

Owner, Claude Pope launched Bald Head Blues, in April 2014 with his first retail shop located in Bald Head Island, NC. His inspiration for this coastal clothing line came from the uniqueness of Bald Head Island... being a "golf cart only" mobility. (That's right, no cars allowed.) The Bald Head Blues logo was created with that inspiration and "Clothing for Coasting" motto derived from 'coasting around in the golf cart' on the coast of NC.

Bald Head Blues clothing line was created for those who love the beach, love to golf, love to surf and just love life. This lifestyle brand specializes in super soft pima cotton polos, quarter zip jackets, button down shirts, boxer shorts, polos for little boys and so much more. And coming October 15, they will launch their men's kahki pants.  

Wearing Bald Head Blues transports you to a place we all long to be, no matter where we are. Shopping at this quaint clothing boutique in Five Points Raleigh, you'll love their wide range of men's and women's apparel, as well as accessories and gifts, featuring designer lines carefully selected highlighting goods made in NC and/or in the USA.

Olly Oxen -  A Raleigh brand created by two brothers and a sister in 2010, specializing in collegiate wear for NC schools, bow ties, hats, Tees with NC state outlined and... also UNC, NCSU and ECU baby onesies.

Native - Old and new Turkish tapestries turned into wearable art necklaces for a worldly, well-traveled, 'Native look'. Each Native piece is a one-of-a-kind, handcrafted, featuring a different design from new and antique tapestries made in Raleigh by Kate Ward, a Raleigh native.

Blue Claw Co. - Bags designed and manufactured by hand in the US with 14.7oz. duck Martexin wax canvas and domestic full grain leather, making high end leather weekender bags, garment bags and dopp kits; great for holiday gifts.

Knockaround Sunglasses -  Are just what they say they are. They're "knockarounds" wayfair and aviator style glasses with polorized lens for a 1/4 of the price. These sunglasses retail for $30 but have the feel and look of a $100+ pair.  

SPGBK - Wooden watches from Charlotte, started by two fraternity brothers from Fayetteville who focused on providing fashion pioneers with affordable and high quality watches. SPGBK has a clear purpose in helping to bring eco-focused fashion products to modern culture.

T Marie Designs - Jewelry created by Tiffany Custard of Atlanta, GA using materials of the highest quality to ensure the longevity of each creation. Each piece of jewelry is hand crafted by Tiffany herself. Tiffany's hand knotted black sandstone antler necklace and boars tooth & bone necklace are just a couple of her fall necklaces that you'll fall in love with.

Yeti Coolers and Accessories - Yeti is the cooler of choice for outdoor enthusiasts, pros, tailgaters and backyard barbeque kings. Ultimately, life is about having a good time doing what you love. Yeti is for the wild at heart, so their coolers and tumblers couldn't be anything less.

No more rainy day blues... head to Five Points and get slap happy while shopping at Bald Head Blues!

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on
The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of 
The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about. 


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
