Father and Sons is the coolest shop in quickly-gentrifying downtown Raleigh, and the epicenter of all things retro. On the main floor, you can find vintage furniture, cameras, electronic and stereo equipment, tiki bar sets, lighting, glassware…and the list goes on ad infinitum. Downstairs is a good (in both quality and variety) selection of vintage clothing, with some pretty amazing sweaters, jackets, cardigans, and even cocktail dresses. On the third floor, lots more clothing, a few rooms with some amazing 80s era toys, along with tables and walls covered with an assortment of attractive and affordable works by local artists. The owner is friendly and easily approachable, and they host musicians for Raleigh’s monthly First Friday celebrations, which is a definite bonus. Check in often, the stock changes quickly and there’s always something cool, even if you don’t end up buying it.
