 Shoppe Gal Miranda here excited that June is here! June is such an exciting month if you love summer, since it begins just a few weeks into the month. I love going to the beach over summer break. I am super excited about this June because I finally graduate high school. 

June is also super fun for clothes shopping because you can really get into brighter colors and white. The shoppe is full of fun colors, it is a real change of pace from winter. So fun to get to dress for warmer weather with tank tops and shorts. Hair up more often means always having earrings in which is also super fun to shop for too. 

Hope everyone enjoys the warm weather and June! Have a great Summer! <3

Hi all!  Shoppe Gal Cecile here.  It’s finally Spring and all I can think about is warm sunshine, porch sitting, flip flops, and comfy T-shirts.  Going out to eat….outside, craft shows, concerts and vacations.  So thankful we are able to get back outside. 

Our shoppe is so blessed to have so many amazing supporters, local and distant, to keep us going and I hope our shoppe helped you keep going as well. We are on the other side and ready to PARTY!! 🎉   

Let’s make it a great April!

Witch Season!

Happy October! We can’t believe 2021 is almost over, it felt like it flew by! We love when the weather starts to get colder because that means it’s sweater season (and sweatpants😉). 

The Doodling Bug has the cutest sweaters ever and we love seeing everyone start to holiday shop for all their loved ones! One of my favorite parts of the shoppe is no matter what season we are in, we always keep the fun colors in our clothes because who doesn’t like to rock some fabulous colors all year long?? 

One of my favorite parts of October is Halloween of course! Downtown apex throws the cutest events, like Witches on Salem! I love seeing everyone in there best witch costumes, especially when they come visit the Shoppe!  We all hope you stop by and visit us!

Yay, It's August!!

    Hey y'all! Happy August! It's Shoppe Gal Caley here, and I am so excited to tell you about some of my favorite Summer items currently in the Shoppe! 🌞💗 I also wanted to let our wonderful customers know that we absolutely love to see them downtown on these hot Summer days!

One thing I love about Summer at The Doodling Bug is the absolutely adorable clothing that we sell! One of my favorite items currently is the "Smocking Hot Top." This item is totally cute, and perfect for all of your plans before school starts! 

Another exciting aspect of the month of August is Back to School!! All of our cute clothes and necklaces are perfect for new school outfits, and we have the cutest vinyl stickers for laptops and water bottles! Our North Carolina stickers are especially perfect for students going out of state for college and are in need of a super cute reminder of home!

The new jewelry we have in stock at the Shoppe is my absolute favorite thing customers have been buying recently. There are such fun and unique pieces that are perfect to spice up any outfit! Our assortment of fun earrings and gorgeous necklaces will blow your mind!

I hope to see you all in the Shoppe this month!!

Sunny July

It is already July, which means we are over halfway through 2021! It is crazy to think about how far we have come over the past year and a half. July means the temperatures are nearing their peak with the sun constantly beaming down on our wonderful Downtown Apex. Whether you are planning on enjoying this sunshine that is ahead of us by traveling to the beach, spending time at the lake, or laying by the pool, we have what you need to make your time even more enjoyable and fun! 

The Shoppe Gals have been so incredibly happy over the past few weeks because we have received the cutest new arrivals that are absolutely perfect for the Summertime. These new items have quickly filled the Shoppe over the past few weeks and brought a smile to everyone’s faces. One of my favorites that are just great for the summer is our bags and wristlets. We have a variety of designs and sizes that are perfect to put some sunscreen in and head to the pool or to simply take to a post-beach dinner! Among these new arrivals have also been the cutest summer clothing pieces. A few of my personal favorites are our maxi sundress and adorable babydoll blue gingham dress! The pastel colors of each item have not only lit up the Shoppe, but also the faces of each of our amazing customers. 

This July we are all crossing our fingers for the rain to stay away and for the sun to shine bright each minute. I know it can get hot walking throughout downtown, so grab an iced coffee or an ice cream, then come cool down in the Doodling Bug. We are all looking forward to another amazing month at the Shoppe and we can’t wait to see everyone here!
