Featured Artist & Businesses

At Buoy Collective it is not only important to sell dope and sustainable clothes, but also to create a space that promotes, cultivates, and supports our local community! Every few months, we will feature products in our store sourced from various local businesses, creatives, and artists. Additionally, as a “menswear” brand we feel that it important to uplift and magnify the work of women in our boutique, so many of these brands will be women-owned!


Soy Candles by Lita + Ro

Meet Tiffany and Kayvone,  Lita+Ro began as an in-person business based in Washington, D.C. participating in art and neighborhood festivals throughout the region. They handcraft 100% soy candles using fine fragrance and essential oils. Their scented candles are named and inspired by memories, places, people we all know and love, celebrities, and a few of their customers.
