Local Spotlight: The Posh Fox – The Gem of Roaring Gap

Conveniently located off of Highway 21 in the heart of beautiful Roaring Gap, NC, The Posh Fox is a popular shopping destination for both vacationers and full-time residents of Alleghany and Wilkes Counties. The shop, which offers ladies apparel and accessories, unique gifts and gift baskets, home decor, garden items, and gourmet food, features a unique inventory that is carefully sourced and artfully displayed. As suggested by its whimsical name, items in the store range from polished and sophisticated, to rustic and cozy in style, satisfying a wide array of tastes and preferences.

This charming boutique, now in its fifth season, is owned by Angelia “Angie” Howell. Each year, Angie and her mother, Eloise, travel to Atlanta to select new items to feature in the shop. The mother-daughter team shares an eye for fashion and a love of exceptional design. Items are carefully selected with their customers in mind. Some of the best sellers in the shop, however, are created by local artisans. In addition to arts and crafts such as pottery and jewelry, the shop features home-baked goods including cheesecake and fresh breads. A champion of the local economy, Angie hosts a number of special events each year to support these craftspeople and bring the community together.

Take one quick stroll around the shop, and Angie’s appreciation for quality and style, attention to detail, talent for interior design, love of community, and focus on customer service will quickly become apparent. The Posh Fox is the ideal place to pick up a hostess gift, expand your wardrobe, complete your cabin’s décor, discover a new culinary delight, or simply satisfy the urge for some “retail therapy.”

The Posh Fox of Roaring Gap is open from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. from May through the second week in December. Bargain hunters should be sure to visit the shop in November when items are marked down for the holiday season.
