Going Local: For Your Convenience

Our days are getting cooler, and the holidays are right around the corner!  We've got a suggestion as you gather your gifts this year - be sure to check out local shop For Your Convenience.  Located on Bickett in Five Points (just a few doors down from Wine & Design), For Your Convenience boasts a great selection of lighting, vintage furniture, home decor, art, stationery, jewelry, accessories, specialty food and wine - in short an eclectic and fun mix!  There's always something new - it's never the same shop twice. You can't help but love a place like FYC, where you can drop in to pick up cheese straws, a nice bottle of wine and a fabulous new piece of jewelry.  Shop local, and tell them we sent you!

Going Local: Crafty Beer Shop - Five Points

We just made a new friend!  Crafty Beer Shop has recently opened in Raleigh's Five Points, right across from Hayes Barton Pharmacy.  The shop boasts an impressive selection of craft beer, both on tap from behind the bar and in the bottles lining the shelves.  This is a locally owned new venture, and you'll be treated to a warm welcome by folks who know their beer.  The official grand opening is slated for later this month, but if you stop by you'll find the shop open and ready to go with plenty of beer available - not to mention a few local savories including our cheese straws!  Wine by the glass is coming soon as well.  With plenty of seating and wifi available, you can think of Crafty Beer Shop like Starbucks - with beer!!  Today is National IPA Day - swing by and celebrate with the folks at Crafty Beer Shop!
