Our Story


We are three adventurous gals originally from the Triad area of North Carolina who just so happen to be related. Our business is based out of Sunset Beach and in our spare time, you can most likely find us boating or fishing on High Rock or Belews Lake or the coastal waters in and around Morehead City, Wilmington and Sunset Beach.

We purchased Southern Buoys in March of 2019 when by an odd encounter at a coastal clothing boutique, we learned it was for sale. We thought it to be a great compliment to our Southern Gulls line of clothing that we are currently working on together. Both clothing lines will incorporate our original ideas that we get from our collaborative time spent on our North Carolina waters. There will be a little something for buoys and a little something for gulls!

Thank you for your patience as we make this transition. We are currently working with a new and local printer in Ocean Isle, North Carolina as we feel it's important to support local businesses when possible. 

We are excited about the future and incorporating our ideas into cool and comfortable clothing and accessories. We have and continue to spend countless hours brainstorming new and original designs. And because looks is not everything, we have searched for the most comfortable fabrics that wear well and feel good. If we won’t wear it... we don’t expect you to!

Happy Sails To You,

Renee, Capriece & Cara
