SPREE! at Last! - Junior League of Raleigh's A Shopping SPREE!
Oct. 29 - Nov. 1

Some things like  buying tickets for the seventh installment of the series "The Force Awakens" are better left on the Web. But shopping at the Junior League of Raleigh's A Shopping SPREE!  means you'll have to get out of the house and head to the Raleigh Convention Center to enjoy actual shopping while interacting with real people and good friends.

A Shopping SPREE! begins Thursday, Oct. 29th through Sun., Nov. 1st. This annual four-day shopping fundraiser showcases regional and national exhibitors for shoppers seeking the latest in fashion and home decor trends, unique gifts and holiday merchandise. It's a juried event ensuring a well balanced selection of products and quality merchandise.

Junior League volunteers work hard to bring new vendors each year to the SPREE! in order to keep the shopping experience fresh and trendy for repeat shoppers.

We've highlighted just a few new-comers that we think are a 'must see' in this year's SPREE! (Click here for full Vendor List)

Elizabeth Moore Designs are made up of precious and semi-precious stones combined with
18k gold, Sterling silver and gold vermeil that come together to tell a special, individual story of delicate beauty. Nothing in Elizabeth Moore's collection is mass produced and every piece is unique and supremely special. Moore's designs are effortless, meant to take you from casually chic in a t-shirt and jeans, to black-tie elegant nights on the town.

adLib Antiques - Offering fine 18th and 19th century American furniture as well as French country furniture, folk art, architectural items, decorative accessories, and Native American jewelry.

 Batistini Farms from Clemmons, NC presents authentic, superior, and award winning extra virgin olive oils, along with the best savory and thick balsamic vinegars, to deliver distinguished organoleptic properties as an outstanding compliment for foods.

In addition, assiduous attention ensures their organic options meet strict certification guidelines continuing through harvest and production. Natural and sustainable growing methods are followed by careful selection during harvest. Batistini Farms present ingredients from nature combined with traditional methods passed down from generations.

 Bird Dog Bay ties have a long standing pedigree that always keeps men looking their
Best in Show. Their neckwear is made of 100% silk, hand-printed and handmade in the USA. Started in a little Chicago suburb called Sleepy Hollow, where founder & principal designer, Steve Mayer, spent his youth. He was raised by a mother who was the town's favorite over-the-top second grade teacher, and the perfectly contrasting Harley riding, fly rod toting, dangerfield-esque art teacher for a father. Both parents showed him the value of living life to its fullest, while on the same note, not taking it too seriously.

Cheers To You! is a family owned business who's created unique blends and delicious cocoas, cappuccinos, and teas.

In addition to their online store, they also sell these products at various shows like SPREE!. They offer quality products that make wonderful gifts for any occasion.

No One Alike from Irmo, SC, This father daughter artistic team works for pure enjoyment of providing unique hand made products from either natural or recycled materials. No two pieces are the same...no production shop here! They keep pushing the limits of their craft to see how far they can go, inspired quite often by ideas from their customers. Gifts in woods and fibers.

Always Poppin, a gourmet popcorn shop in Raleigh, owned and operated by Scott Brammer, located at 8801 Lead Mine Road, between Six Forks and Strickland. Always Poppin offers a
wide variety of flavors including traditional butter, salted, cheddar, white cheddar, caramel, confetti, dill pickle, ranch, buffalo, sour cream and onion, as well as other mixes.

Easy Rider - Devolve Moto Opens in Glenwood South

It's feeling like one of those days, and you've got the urge to leave your concrete jungle of work. Head over and plan your next adventure at the newly opened Devolve Moto at 304 Glenwood Avenue (across from Sushi Blues and Hibernian Pub at Glenwood South).

Devolve Moto's atmosphere is edgy, vintage west coast themed, motorcycle, outfitter, espresso, craft beer shop. And it's as awesome as it sounds.

Thankfully, Devolve is shaking things up with a little something for everyone. It's opened from 8:00am to 8:00pm Monday through Sunday. Come for impeccable coffee and espressos (using locally roasted Torch coffee), homegrown, fresh breakfasts from Lucette Grace and Taco Revolution, a fine selection of craft brews and wines, and a beautifully merchandised motor lifestyle boutique with phenomenal selections for unique quality gifts including Nemo Equipment gear and tough, stylish apparel from Tellason, Brixton, Deus Ex Machina and more.

Devolve Moto is here to help you go wherever the trek takes you, whether it involves a bike, a board or a backpack. They've got the tools you need for a day in the garage and the grooming products to clean up afterward. Even if you're just looking to kick back and sip on a coffee or a beer while you read your favorite copy of Iron & Air, this is the place.

About the owners: With freedom in their hearts and hands on the throttle, Greig Hochreiter, Charles Long and Clark Hipolito started this venture with a simple dream and turned it into a crossover custom board and bike shop. Simple, fun and adventurous... all three owners have this in common. They've been around bikes and boards since they were kids.  

It's not an end-all be-all shop for any one particular thing, though motorcycles will always be at the center of attention. Devolve Moto's got a little bit of everything you'll want to get out there and stir up some trouble, plus all the goods to clean you up afterwards.

An all encompassing adventure lifestyle destination store that has a little bit of everything you need to get out and explore the world whether it be by land, air or sea.

Peace, love and gasoline..It's gonna be one helluva ride. But this is only a beginning; Devolve Moto's got a lot of tread left to burn.

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.
