100 Years in the Making - Kannon's Women's Clothing Store Comes to Cameron Village

Like many family-owned businesses, Kannon's Clothing knows the secret to growing a business is respecting tradition while embracing the future. Celebrating its 100th year Anniversary, Kannon's Women's Store has just relocated from Wendell to Raleigh's Cameron Village; a boldly spirited evolution of its legendary bloodline.

Relatively Speaking: Keeping it in the family has proven customer loyalty. Kannon's customers feel they too are part of "the family" with the care and service they receive and the attention to detail that's far beyond the norm.

The new store is located at 2015 Cameron St. at the corner of Cameron Street and Woodburn Road, next to Great Outdoor Provision Company.

The new location places one of North Carolina's oldest family-owned, upscale women's clothing stores in a vibrant shopping region and introduces more shoppers to Kannon's sophisticated women's apparel and well-known personalized shopping experience.

Kannon's has been known for its high-quality apparel with impeccable, individualized

customer service. This award-winning customer service has earned customer loyalty from throughout North Carolina and out of state for generations. Today it continues with third-generation family leadership.

"We're thrilled to be in Cameron Village and know it is an ideal fit for what Kannon's represents to our loyal customers," said Joe Ann Wright who with her brother George Knuckley and sister Boo Jefferson manage the business. "As we celebrate our 100th anniversary this year, our new store serves as a great marker of our successful past and of our bright future to come."

"We look forward to continuing to serve these customers and friends from the new Raleigh location with the same friendly, warm and individualized service they've come to expect for decades".

Kannon's women's store move to Cameron Village follows the successful relocation of the Kannon's men's store to the shopping center in 2012. The store will be open from 10am to 6pm Monday through Saturday and closed on Sundays.

Great Place, Tiny Space - Gather in Downtown Raleigh

Gather is a great little boutique. And when we say little, we mean tiny. Recently, this cozy shop moved to downtown Raleigh from downtown Cary and we're stoked to have it grace  Franklin Street with it's natural-bohemian-crafty store vibes.

Located at 200 E. Franklin Street, the space is only 16ft x 6ft, with a large classroom area in the back. The shop is beside Oak City Cycling and across the street from Yellow Dog Bread Co. (a white building with black double doors)

Owner, Michelle Smith started Gather as an outlet for her own artwork and photography, and it eventually grew into the larger co-working space. She likes to call the space "a tiny shop with a lot of soul."

The shop features Smith's line of products, Gather Goods Co, alongside gifts for the garden, body, and home; the majority of which are made by emerging artists and designers like herself and made in North Carolina. You can also Shop Online.

Gather host private classes, events and parties where they provide instructions and all materials included. These classes are great for both kids and adults alike. Some of their most popular classes have been succulent wreath making, terrarium making, hand lettering, Kokedama hanging succulent balls, clutch sewing, hand embroidery, floral arranging, Shibori textile dying and DIY ceramic herb markers.

Coming soon - Gather will soon be adding a tea bar, similar to the one they had in Cary.

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.
