Our Story


We are three adventurous gals from the Triad area of North Carolina who just so happen to be related. 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 and Sunset Beach.

We purchased Southern Buoys in March of this year, when by an odd encounter at a local clothing store, we learned it was for sale. We thought it to be a great compliment to our Southern Gulls line of apparel that we had been contemplating since early 2018. 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 will begin restocking our most popular tee's in the Southern Buoys line but in a wider range of sizes and colors with new lighter material. We will be showcasing new hat designs as well. Another crucial part of this business is finding exceptional artists that can recreate our ideas on paper. This is a painstaking process and though we have had a few bumps in the road we are close to making a decision.

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
