17 THE ORIGINAL RELOCATION GUIDE — TRIANGLE NC | VOLUME 16 — ISSUE 2 THE TRIANGLE a purpose other than profit. You might find an Oscar de la Renta blazer while looking through clothes that are largely from Talbots, BASS, Ralph Lauren or other designer brands. All proceeds go to domestic violence victims through Family Violence and Rape Crisis Services. The Joyful Jewel promotes North Carolina artisans and authors. Those drawn to art will be rewarded with unusual jewelry, cards, art pieces, pottery and books from more than 150 artists. Artist Beth Shaffer specializes in making art from ordinary objects such as wind chimes, birdhouses, metal flowers and jewelry. Old flatware is a favorite element found in her art. For an experience not found anywhere else, go to Carolina Tiger Rescue for a walking tour of the wildlife sanctuary where Siberian tigers, lions and other big cats make their home. Or, commune with nature with a paddle ride down the Haw River with Haw River Canoe & Kayak's Bynum Outpost. It is not unusual to spot a bald eagle along the way. Shopping is a treat for the senses in the Triangle cities. Locally owned stores and boutiques are flourishing in open air, walkable shopping centers. North Hills is a "city within a city" in North Raleigh where shops (80+), offices, restaurants, apartments and hotels converge at the 94-acre urban destination often described as Raleigh's second central business district. From traditional mall settings (Crabtree in Raleigh), eclectic downtown boutique shopping on Franklin Street in Chapel Hill to The Streets at Southpoint complex in Durham, choices are endless. The temperate climate is a draw for college sports, local community teams and outdoor recreation. NCSU, UNC and Duke entertain sports fans all four seasons. All three teams are rivals but the most heated pairing is between the Duke Blue Devils and the Carolina Tar Heels when they take the basketball court to face off during ACC tournament time. Cricket continues to gain support in the region. The amateur Triangle Cricket League promotes the world's second most popular sport with adult and youth players. Cricket fields are in Morrisville, and home games are played at NCSU and other locations with players from South Asia, England, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and West Indies. Minor league baseball teams play throughout the Triangle but the best known is the Durham Bull team that plays in the Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
