  At our office each day, we receive a lot of phone calls about our listings and if they can schedule a time to view the home. We first question is always "Have you already been pre-qualified with a lender?". It is reasonable to think you would begin your home search with a real estate agent, but how are you going to pay for the home?  

   The saying should go "It takes a village to buy a home". Buying a home requires a team of people to assist you! A Realtor, a lender, an attorney, home inspector, and many more!

The Go Girl Shoppe is one of those places you fall in love with instantly. It’s a traveling boutique that carries fun eclectic finds and accessories, and it’s overwhelmingly charming to say the least. You’ll find everything from pillows and pictures with southern sayings, beautiful vintage inspired jewelry, right down to the cutest darn furniture you’ll ever see.

The first time I visited the shop, I truly had to resist snagging up everything I saw, but ended up settling on a cute pair of earrings for my mom. You bet I had to come back again…and again after I started following them on Instagram, so hard to resist! So I was super excited to speak with Meghan, the owner of the Go Girl Shoppe and find out what inspires her!

"I am oringinally from and grew up in Durham, so a southern girl I am.  There is something about growing up in the south.  Football season, grits, monograms, flea markets, front porches, and of course we are always blessin someone’s heart.  We love carrying southern sayings and great southern gifts in our shop.  I started the Go Girl Shoppe because I got tired of seeing the same things in the mall.  I wanted something fun and unique and so were the people that I talked to.  The Go Girl Shoppe carries fun and eclectic finds and accessories for every occasion.  We try to keep it fun and fresh all the time.  You never know what you may find in the shop."

The Go Girl Shoppe: Traveling Southern Charm

The Go Girl Shoppe is such an unique boutique and just a great business idea, so I was curious what Meghan’s favorite part of her business is, “It’s hard to say that there is one favorite part of my business, but if I had to name one it would have to be the customers.  We have met so many amazing, wonderful people out there. Their comments, love, and support means so much to us.  Without them we would not exist as a small business.  It never gets old hearing new and returning customers that come in our store and gush over a item that they just have to have.  We work so hard at what we do and to hear the comments make us so happy!”

You can find them at Raleigh Flea Market in the commercial building at the Flea Market every Saturday and Sunday from 9:00-5:30 except for October, it shuts down for the fair but reopens the second weekend in November. Check out their website to locate them on other dates! (Link at end of article)

The Go Girl Shoppe doesn’t have any plans for a store front at the moment, but Meghan says ‘You never know! We are enjoying what we are doing and bringing our brand to our customers and followers!  The future holds so much for go girl!”

In a world full of mass produced accessories made in China and big box stores, I’m truly excited to have such a unique shop in the Triangle that you can deck out yourself and your home in some true southern charm! Instagram: thegogirlshoppe
