The Fort at 3512 – Visit When the Door Is up

Real estate friend and ITB guru, Annie Meadows, let me in on this super secret shopping find! (Check her out for your real estate needs, cocktail recipes, and just suggestions on how to have a good time in Raleigh).

The Fort at 3512

Located at 3512 Clark Avenue in a freestanding garage, The Fort at 3512, is a hidden gem full of vintage gifts, accessories, and more, but you would probably miss it if you didn’t know it was there. The door of the garage goes up a few times a week for your shopping pleasure but you have to be on “THE LIST” to know when it goes up.


Pam Clark opened the garage door up on October 18, 2012, and has never looked back. One of my favorite things about The Fort is Pam makes it extremely easy and convenient to shop yet it feels like you are part of an exclusive club.

To join the club, sign up now to be on THE LIST. THE LIST is a weekly newsletter that comes to your inbox. It will let you know when the shop is open, ramblings from Pam, and more.

Have The Fort to Yourself

For a more personal shopping experience, you can make an appointment with Pam. You will have Pam and The Fort all to yourself and she will help you find exactly what you are looking for.

You can also text, call, or email Pam. She will send you pictures of things she has. If you decide you like it, she will wrap it and have it ready for you on the porch for quick pickup.

 Gathering & Styling at The Fort

Every week the garage doors open for “Drinks in the Driveway.” It is usually held on Thursdays from 5-7 p.m. (check THE LIST to be sure). Come have a cocktail and do a little shopping and socializing.

The Fort also offers “Styling.” I must admit that I did not originally know what this meant. To sum it up – if you have not moved the items on your coffee table, mantle, or bookshelves in a year, it may be time for some styling.

This could be just moving around what you have or adding a few new items to the mix. Either way, Pam will help you out. Contact her if you are in need of some styling.
