March 21, 2019 Program –Fashion Show: CT Weekends of Cameron Village
(Speakers: Dennis Mayfield and Kristi Hipple)

Kristi Hipple is the owner of CT Weekends, located in Cameron Village. She has 40 years of retail experience, starting with the H.C. Prange Co. in Wisconsin. She was recruited by the buying office of Rose's Stores in Henderson, NC for a management position in 1988. She spent six years at Rose's before moving to Jackson, MS and then Dodge City, KS in senior retail management positions. She moved back to Raleigh in 1999 as a partner with Doug and Lu Harris, owning Certain Things and CT Weekends.

In 2002, the company was split and Kristi became the sole owner of CT Weekends. Since 2002, Kristi, along with Dennis Mayfield, have repositioned CT Weekends, focusing on products from Europe and Canada, allowing the store to offer products not readily available to other retailers. CT Weekends strives to be a good community partner, providing funding and in-kind gifts to several local charities, including Interact, Community Music School, Saving Grace and Dress for Success.
