The Collegiate Shop Apparel and Gifts is celebrating six years in business in their new expanded location in historic downtown Kernersville. Now at 128 W. Mountain Street, the shop offers even more exciting collegiate items as well as custom embroidery and vinyl stamping. Owner Lisa Bugg has successfully grown her business through enthusiasm, integrity, and attention to detail. Customer satisfaction is always her end goal.
Lisa has stocked her shop with items to please everyone, including students, alumni, parents, and grandparents. Both guys and gals will find items they will love to wear, use at home or when tailgating, or to give as gifts. The Collegiate Shop carries logoed items from all the big local and regional colleges, as well as some of the smaller, but popular schools.
Lisa meticulously stocks only collegiate items that are “Officially Licensed Collegiate Products” so her customers can buy with confidence. She not only carries the high-quality t-shirts and hats that you would expect, but also a variety of fashionable collegiate apparel with color matching jewelry and accessories. You can find apparel from Colosseum Apparel, Emerson Street and other fine clothing lines, as well as trendy fashion, purses, and jewelry from Caroline Hill.
Don’t forget to “dress” your home or dorm room with collegiate décors such as pillows, dish towels, glasses, and mugs. Lisa carries the popular Catstudio Geography and Collegiate line of décor items. How about an indoor/outdoor throw pillow with your favorite team’s logo for your patio or dorm room? Or choose a popular collegiate Corkcicle tumbler.
Enhance your tailgating and “homegating” parties with your favorite team’s logo on coolers, tailgate chairs, and blankets from Logo Brand, or plates, silicone pans and ice trays from FanPans and Magnolia Lane. How fun to add some delicious gourmet items to your gathering such as Virginia Diner Nuts – each can be decorated with your college’s logo. These make great take-home gifts for your guests as well!
But now for the “So Much More” that is offered at The Collegiate Shop! Lisa also offers custom embroidery and vinyl stamping on an infinite variety of items. Her in-house six needle commercial embroidery machine allows Lisa to create custom embroidery on just about any clothing item. Clothing can be purchased from The Collegiate Shop, or you can bring in your own items for embroidery. Lisa’s vinyl cutter and heat press produce vinyl images that can be applied to almost any item to represent your college, recreational sports team, favorite non-profit group or company logo. The possible applications are endless! Any size business can enhance credibility and build brand recognition with custom logoed apparel from The Collegiate Shop. And just think how fun to add custom logoed or monogrammed items to your family reunion, birthday party, bridal party, wedding, etc. Imagine the fun gift ideas you could create for the upcoming holidays! Turnaround time is 3-7 days, and the best part is that there is no minimum! Need ideas? Lisa and her staff gladly offer knowledgeable consultation.
