My name is Stephanie Sikes and I’m the owner of Closet Sikeology. I’m married to my high school sweetheart and I’m a crazy busy mom of four kids, ranging in age from 18 to 7. I believe that what we wear adds to our confidence, empowers us, and reflects our personality. I’ve always had an entrepreneurial spirit and the idea behind starting Closet Sikeology came from frustration with my own shopping experience and never finding clothes that really spoke to my soul and reflected the real me. When shopping in stores and online, I found myself frustrated with the inability to find more than 1 or 2 pieces that spoke to me. Tired of not finding my "look" and tired of standing in front of my closet never really loving everything in there, gave birth to the idea to curate a "closet" of pieces that I not only love, but that I think others will love too. I got to work on making my dream of owning my own boutique a reality in 2019. Even with the uncertainty of a pandemic surrounding us, we launched online in July 2020. In March of 2021, the opportunity for a space in The Cotton Company presented itself and I jumped on it. We were really successful there, so when I was asked if I wanted to be a part of White Street Boutique, it was a no-brainer. Thank you to all of our faithful customers that continuously show up to support us. We are nothing without YOU!
I am Kinder Braley, mom, wife, entrepreneur, and I have always had a love for Ministry, children, Fashion, and Jewelry. Now ask me years ago how that would all work together, and I may not have had an answer, but God. He is the one who placed this vision on my heart on a missions trip several years ago. We launched in April of this year, and are so excited to see where He takes it. I believe strongly in using our voice to bring awareness. We can stand against human trafficking, and meet the needs of children across the globe even with what we wear and how we shop. I fell in love with the people there as I’m sure you would also if given the chance. They have the least of anyone, yet they have the Biggest Faith. The artisans have an incredible amount of talent and not nearly enough opportunity to showcase it. The jewelry is handmade from all natural materials and designs like no other. It is our vision to provide work for multiple artisans while pouring the profits back into the orphan children in Uganda. The list of their needs is endless (clean water wells, food, blankets, shoes, school supplies etc.) and my dream is to bring others into our vision in meeting those needs. We can be the tangible love of God they desperately need to see, and restore Hope that has been lost. Where they once felt unheard and unseen they now feel cared for. One piece of jewelry can feed a child for a month. We are adding artisans and the pieces available will always be unique and changing. It’s all of our dreams interwoven together by the hand of God. How I came up with the name, “Dreams Collect”. Our motto is “We will not put limits on a Limitless God.”We are starting small, but our vision is big. We partner with Tim Ballard in taking a stance against human trafficking, but our primary focus is on being a voice for the voiceless. Our goal is to create more work for artisans while paving a way for the sweet children to be poured into.
Blakeley's was imagined many years ago by a mom who had a dream of one day working with her style savvy daughter to create a fun, unique shopping experience for all women. After many years of planning and waiting for that "right moment", that dream has finally become a reality! We are Tammy and Haley, a mom and daughter duo who share a love of faith, fashion, and of course, shopping!The name of this dream is Blakeley's, a name created from Tammy's greatest gifts, her children, Blake and Haley. Our goal at Blakeley's is to share our love of fashion to make our customers feel beautiful inside and out! We hand-select all of our clothing, gifts & accessories, making sure each item is of the highest quality and standards for our valued customers.We launched our online boutique in April of 2021 and have been filling shopping carts with chic style ever since! We longed for our local customers to have a space to feel, try-on, and fall in love with our products in person, so becoming a vendor at White Street Boutique was an easy “YES”! We hope you are thrilled with your shopping experience, and hope you find many exciting things in our spaces at The Cotton Company & White Street Boutique. We are so honored to be a part of such a wonderful group of vendors!
Maren May's Boutique
Hi there, I am so excited and blessed that you're here! My name is Amber and I am the owner + buyer of Maren May's Boutique. We are a women's clothing and accessories boutique based in small town outside of Raleigh, North Carolina called Fuquay Varina! Our mission is to help women look and feel their best no matter where your day takes you. Whether you are a stay at home mom chasing after kiddos, heading to work, to church on Sunday morning, or a date on Saturday night- we want to be your go-to choice for looking and feeling your best with functional, accessible, and sophisticated clothing. I am a wife to my wonderful husband Daniel, and mama to 2 littles- Maren and Otto. This boutique is named after our daughter, Maren May- she is a cheeky little ray of sunshine and a huge inspiration behind following this dream. I set out on this journey to bring a curated selection of sophisticated, modest, chic pieces to women that were most likely in need of this- just like I was! My goal is to also include several pieces that are nursing and bump friendly as we continue to grow. Items will be noted if they are nursing/bump friendly in their description. Motherhood is one of the most beautiful things to experience, but it can also make the days feel like a blur and you can quickly no longer feel like yourself. I found that even when I was able to put on some mascara, a great tee, and a comfortable pair of denim, I instantly felt a little better and ready to tackle whatever the day was going to throw my way. I hope that when women find my boutique, they feel relieved and excited. Even on those chaotic days stuck in the house, I want you to feel like you have pieces that are functional and accessible in your life! I can't wait to connect with you! Love, Amber Owner + Buyer
Reflect Boutique was founded in 2017 by Melissa Peters. She started this boutique as a way to offer unique clothing, local jewelry, gifts, and accessories. Prior to opening her boutique, she owned a private speech & occupational pediatric therapy clinic for 15 years. Melissa has always had a love for clothing, accessories, jewelry, and home decor. Because of this passion, she created her boutique as a way to encourage women of all ages to “reflect” their personal style through the unique selection of clothing, jewelry and accessories. Melissa has also valued the impact of positive encouraging Christian women in her life, and she strives to be this light in the life of other women. Melissa is grateful for the opportunity to be apart of White Street Boutique and their sister store, The Cotton Company. She feels so blessed by the relationships she has built throughout this journey and loves being apart of the local Wake Forest community.
Hi! My name is Baily Rich , the founder, owner and buyer of Baily's. I am a single Momma to an awesome little boy and two pit bulls and we reside in Raleigh, NC. After many years working in retail and realizing a need for a Women's boutique in our area, Baily's was born! Following the year of 2020, I realized that having the flexibility of a boutique that could come to YOU and cater to the local customer not only made sense, but also is an exciting twist on traditional retail. I love connecting , styling and working with other Women and especially love buying and curating the perfect selection of Women's fashion for White Street Boutique. I am so excited Baily's is here in Downtown Wake Forest and I am so grateful to you for joining me on this journey!
