Crafted in Cabarrus

July 18, 2017

From big box outlets to independent boutiques, shopping is an adventure in Cabarrus County.

Whatever occasion you’re celebrating, here’s where to find some of our favorite locally made products (and experiences)!

Ride or Drive Experiences
Put the adrenaline junkies on your list behind the wheel of a real stock car, dragster, Indy or exotic sports car. Nothing will compare to strapping in and speeding off like the stars at Charlotte Motor Speedway and zMAX Dragway.

Snacks from Ritchie Hill Bakery
Claiming a mighty nice blend of cheddar and spice, cheese straws from Ritchie Hill are baked fresh in small batches every day. Nothing else tastes quite as good as 100 years of hometown family tradition.

A Brick at Dale Earnhardt Plaza
Honor the diehard race fan in your family with a commemorative brick at the Dale Earnhardt Plaza. Engraved pavers allow your message to become a permanent part of this tribute to a NASCAR legend.

Wine from Rocky River Vineyards
This family-owned vineyard produces some of the sweetest award-winning wine in North Carolina. Make this a go-to gift option or share a bottle and create new memories to treasure.

Southern Grace Spirits
In early 2015, the distillers at Southern Grace began crafting small batch spirits in Historic Downtown Concord. Now housed inside former Cabarrus Correctional Facility, “Whiskey Prison” is a setting you won’t soon forget, and their signature Sun Dog 130 is a gift that will spark stories of motorsports heritage and days gone by.

Jewels from The Bead Lady
Find the perfect amount of sparkle and stones, and string them together for adornments all your own. The Bead Lady also preserves fresh or dried flowers transforming them into wearable beads.
