I'm just curious how the locations for the City Guides are determined.  I live in North Carolina, so Virginia and Atlanta are kind of pushing it in the crafty travelling! Smiley
Can there be a city guide: Carolinas?

I live between Raleigh and Durham, in Cary.  

Wilmington is cool, though.  I love the Raspberry wheat beer at Front St. Brewery!  We try to hit Wilmington during the summer a few times, since it's only about 2 hours away.  Any crafty places/thrift shops I should drag my boyfriend to on our next trip?

my husband and i lived in cary for a year. we're hoping to move to apex when he finishes school.
i usually hit the usual places: ac moore, joann's, etc.
we have a couple of quilting stores but they're hellaciously overpriced.
there are some pretty cool stores downtown that sell kitschy-cool fun stuff. and if you're into shells we've got the beaches  Roll Eyes
we do have a few good street fairs if you're looking to sell your stuff. my mother-in-law and i are planning to have a booth at the azalea festival.

if you make it down for the festival pop by my booth and say hi  Smiley

I've been to a cool yarn store on Wade Avenue in Raleigh, but that's not really my thing - I was there shopping for some yarn for a knitting friend Smiley  The azalea festival sounds fun.  I'm new to this area, only been here about 7 or 8 months, so I'm not up on all the NC happenings.  I apparently missed the Pig Festival, which was in June. Smiley haha.

i lived in carrboro/pittsboro/chapel hill for a few years before i moved to hot springs, which is northwest of asheville, just a mile or 2 from tennessee.  and my best girl moved when i did, from carrboro to beaufort.  so we drive across this longlonglong state every year.  man do i despise I-40!  but both ends of nc are well worth the travelling-i just wish the beach and the mountains were a lot closer.

I just moved down here permanently last June.  I definitely want to check out the mountains when it gets warmer out.  (Not a winter sports person!).  Definitely Asheville.  Is Biltmore Estate worth the $40 admission price?

I've been to the Outer Banks quite a bit and my aunt and uncle live in the Charlotte area, so I've just got the mountains left. Smiley  

And I take I-40 to work every morning.  It has its moments. Smiley  64 is an interesting route from here to the beach, parts are like highway and others go through countryside.  Very weird.  I-85 has a Waffle House on every exit.  And lots of outlets.  haha.

Oh, and I really like Chapel Hill.  The shops on Franklin St. are fun to browse - that crazy Time after time thrift shop has way too many interesting relics.  Not to mention its wide variety of evening activity.  haha.

i've only been once, and i'll admit there were gorgeous rooms full of gorgeous things, and a lot of interesting history...
something about all of that conspicous consumption though...  it made me feel dirty.

Seems like Wilmington is all consignment and "resale" shops, less about thrift stores.  You can still find some neat stuff, but it's not as much fun, ya know?  After evrerything's had the once over by someone else? And it's all, you know, clean and stuff? LOL. I miss stinky thrift stores.

have you gone to habitat for humanity on third?, what about the bargin box? Inexpensive thrift clothes that havent been bought and cleaned, which is what we like! I usually go to tiny little town around us and find what I'm looking for.

yes, I really like The Bargin Box, and my longtime fave is Vintage Values on Castle St., and random things at the Rescue Misson, but it seems like there are less of those types of thrift stores than there used to be.  Has anyone been to the new vintage shop on Front St?
