Vintage Blossoms opened in July of 2019 during Taste of Flat Rock street fair. A highlight for two sisters long Journey. Through Ashlee and Alexis’s hard work their dream of having a place of their own came true. Ashlee started painting furniture when she was eighteen, selling at local pop up markets, quickly Ashlee couldn’t keep up with the demand, her sister Alexis at fifteen started to help. Their parents also pitched in to help the girls. Ashlee fondly remembers her dad towing the trailer to shows; until she learned how navigate the trailer.
When the girls found out that Darlene’s Flower Shop a downtown Flat Rock favorite was for sale, they quickly made an offer. As part of purchasing the building and business, Ashlee and Alexis wanted to keep the flower tradition, as it had been a flower shop for eighty years. Ashlee and Alexis worked for free and under Darlene’s tutelage until the purchase was complete. They also took classes and learned everything they could about the art of flower arranging. Once they had ownership they remodeled the store, brought in local vendors, they finally had a permanent location to display their custom and vintage furniture.
If you haven’t been in Vintage Blossoms, please stop by. Ashlee and Alexis are delightful. Their store is incredibly cute. They have twelve local vendors that carry, signs, candles, and gifts. The girls display their furniture, plants and flowers throughout the store. They rearrange the store every two weeks with different items. There is always something new to discover. The florist part of the business is near and dear to them, they have house plants, beautiful arrangements, a large array of beautiful flowers. Ashlee spoke about how she loves to take time with people specializing in boutiques, to make them exactly what they want, from the type, the color of flowers or maybe a sentimental item added to the arrangement.
