About Us


If you've found our sparkly little corner of the internet, my gut tells me that you're probably interested in using your purchasing power for good.

Although you sometimes feel like your dollars / voice / impact is too small to make a real difference in the world, I can give you the kick in the pants you need to be reminded that your actions ABSOLUTELY make a difference.

Want proof, and some major joy in your day?

We're so glad you found us!



My name is Em, and I adore you already.  Along with my husband Chris, I've been rolling around town in our step van turned fashion boutique, that we have lovingly called The Flourish Market since October 2015.

In November of 2016, we embarked on our biggest adventure to date and opened a gorgeous storefront in Downtown Raleigh at 713 Tucker St!

At The Flourish Market, we're all about spreading dignity across the globe.  

We are an online boutique + brick & mortar store in Raleigh, NC that partners with 40 brands that work all over the world, providing dignified jobs and fair wages to inspiring artisans and makers in vulnerable communities.

Hashtag dream job.

After leaving my corporate career as a Vice President of Communications and Change Management for an Investment Bank, I decided to transfer my skills over to help win people over to the idea of using their purchasing power for good.

But you, my friend, don't need to be won over. 

You already know the huge difference you can make by using your dollars to vote for dignity and worth.  #highfive


We love sharing our behind the scenes fun in our store + our travels around the world to spend time with our artisan partners on Instagram and Facebook, and we'd love for you to join us there! 

And if you'd like to hear more about my heart for your important role in the story, you can read my monthly Huffington Post pieces here.
