"Circa" Opens in Downtown Clayton at 427 E Main Street

“Circa” at 427 E Main Street is an antique and refinished furniture store that has opened in downtown Clayton. Co-owner Brian Shirley said the furniture is “quality, American-crafted furniture at an affordable price.”


Mr. Shirley said he most recently owned a cabinet business that made outdoor kitchens. As the economy became depressed, his orders became fewer and fewer. So, with his entrepreneurial spirit, he learned how to refinish furniture in Laurinburg and began researching business ideas and saw an opportunity in the antique and refinished furniture market. He searched locations around the perimeter of Raleigh, and Clayton had a good community feel to it.

Although furniture sales are the main focus of the business, furniture refinishing and repair is a sideline. Brian said the work will be done in Laurinburg at the shop where he learned to refinish furniture.

“Circa” is open Tuesday through Friday from 9 am to 6 pm and Saturday from 10 am – 5 pm. For more information, call Brian at (910) 280-2709.
