    The Squirrel with No Name

    The Squirrel with No Name

    "I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughing. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it." - The Man with No Name

     

    One look at how badass and awesome The Man with No Name is and you'll see why we wanted to pay him homage with one of our designs. This epic character, brought to life by Clint Eastwood, was the inspiration for our design, The Squirrel with No name.

    We landed on the squirrel idea because living in The City of Oaks, not a day passes that we don't encounter one every day. Bringing together our favorite place to live with our favorite trilogy of movies. It was perfect. The decision to put him on a dog came about because we couldn't put the squirrel on a horse, the size ration was way off and how awesome is the idea of your neighborhood squirrel taking the reigns of man's best friend?!

     Just like all of our tees and tanks these shirts are made from an ultrasoft polycotton blend. Currently, we offer this design in Men's Tees, Women's V-Neck Tees, and Women's Tanks.

    Calling All Raleigh Drinking Team Members

    Calling All Raleigh Drinking Team Members

    You know the palpable feeling of excitement and energy whenever a group of people gathers together in support of a singular objective? Whether that be to score a touchdown, goal, home run, or any common intention. Did you know you can get that same feeling when you and all your friends dress the same when you're out drinking? Well. Welcome to the Raleigh Drinking Team.

    Let's take it back in time for a moment. Back to 2014, during the previous World Cup. Seeing large groups of friends and strangers come together to publically to rally behind their team. Seeing the camaraderie and unity achieved really inspired us to want to create something that could give that same feeling to the amazing people of Raleigh. We wanted to have our own team in support of one of our favorite industries. Local breweries.

    The design started with the lone squirrel, but no team is complete without a proper crest. Even with the design almost complete it still felt as if it were missing something. That’s when the beer bottle was introduced. Once we gave the bottle to the squirrel the design seemed complete.

    If we’re being 100% honest with each other right now, we didn’t have a lot of faith in this design early on but once we saw how people reacted to this design we grew to love it. Groups of people would stop by our booth at various events all repping Raleigh Drinking Team gear and that’s when it really hit us that we had created a tee for the beer lovers of Raleigh.

    After the design had been out a short while we received a call from a kids clothing store asking if we made the design but for babies. Because let’s be real, who drinks more than a baby? (And we’re talking milk here) We made a quick swap to a baby bottle and created the jersey for our youngest team members!

    Currently, you can get Raleigh Drinking Team gear in Men’s Tees, Women’s Tees & Tanks, onesies, and koozies.

    The Gods Cry Whiskey

    The Gods Cry Whiskey

    Anyone that knows us knows that we love whiskey. If you walked into our homes right now there’s a 99.9% chance you’ll find some. It is, as they say, the nectar of the gods. And it may not come as a surprise, but the inspiration for The Gods Cry Whiskey design came about one night while we were kicking it on the porch, drinking whiskey.

    That night, shortly after topping off our glasses with a little Stagg Jr., it began to rain. As it sometimes does, some of the rain fell into our freshly poured glasses. While we thought this would have ruined our drinks, it turns that little splash of rainwater helped to bring out the best flavors in the bourbon and made it even better than before.

    It was this series of events that inspired The Gods Cry Whiskey design.  The double face you see in the design is the god, Janus. And the tears are, you guessed it, whiskey drops! This tee is homage to our beverage of choice.

    Made from a lightweight, ultra-soft polycotton material, this tee has a more tailored fit. We offer The Gods Cry Whiskey in Men’s Tees size XS-XXL. Get yours today!

    RALEIGH HUSTLES HARD - EDGE OF URGE

    We sat down with Jessie Williams, owner of Edge of Urge, for our second installment of Raleigh Hustles Hard. Jessie, along with a few other small business owners, play a key role in making the Person Street neighborhood as great as it is today. Edge of Urge and Lumina Clothing landed in Person Street Plaza in 2014, splitting the space between Yellow Dog Bread Co. and Wine Authorities.

    Edge of Urge has everything. Clothing, shoes, hats, scarves, Freakers, candles, jewelry, art, accessories, hilarious greeting cards, and even a room in the back where you can sit down and stare into Jean Claude Van Damme’s eyes. Is JCVD actually there? Is it just a poster with super life like eyes? Get in there and find out.

    It’s hard to last five minutes without making a purchase. As an artist and crafter who’s been hand sewing clothing since a teenager, Jessie has a great eye for quality products. Along with her amazing team, Jessie has managed to create a unique shopping experience for anyone. She’s a part of the growing slow shopping movement, providing a platform for local crafters and artisans to sell unique goods to the community. Jessie knows both sides, and how hard it can be for an entrepreneur to find their voice and make a living from their talents.

    Like so many other entrepreneurs and hustlers, Jessie walked many paths before ending up at Edge of Urge. She’s a native North Carolinian, but studied fashion and photography at the Art Institute of Chicago. Jessie, who thinks the word “fashion” in itself is a bit pretentious and stuffy, decided along the way that the fashion world wasn’t for her. She shifted her focus to sound and performance art, thinking she’d eventually end up working at a production or recording studio. As a hands-on, visual and auditory learner, that path made a lot more sense. Throughout this time, she never stopped creating and eventually started selling her art and other products to friends. As the business developed, she was turned off by the arduous battle of trying to sell wholesale to stores and other distributors.

    One day my mom told me about this space in Wilmington, NC that was only a few hundred dollars a month. So I took the chance and went down to setup the market with my stuff and some cool products from other crafters I knew in Chicago.” Edge of Urge was born in 2002 in a small $400 a month open-air space at a market in Wilmington, NC. “I was setup across from a guy selling only children’s dolls and swords”, Jessie said about her first space. Luckily, that was short lived. Edge of Urge moved to the JW Brook building in 2003 and then to their eventual home on 18 Market Street in downtown Wilmington, NC.

    Recognizing the support and appreciation Raleigh gives to local and small businesses, opening a second location in DTR was the logical next step. “We have a community based marketing style. Rather than putting a significant focus on online marketing and sales, we try our best to build lasting relationships in the community.”

    Jessie says the addition of the Raleigh shop has been extremely positive and rewarding and they have plans to further connect with the community through a series of pop-up shops and events. Look for their 1966 Vintage Shasta Camper around Raleigh this summer or stop into Edge of Urge at 219 E Franklin Street.
