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.

Donna and Jeff’s venture in business date way back. Jeff joined his father in building custom homes while his wife Donna raised their six children.
In 2002, Donna began to work on a way to start a business that would allow her to stay home, leading Donna to Herbalife. Her mentor told her that to be successful with the product, you need to fall in love with it and believe in it. Well, Donna did. She lost 35 pounds, then Jeff took notice and followed suit.
They both dove headfirst into the Herbalife business and lifestyle. Jeff ended his second-generation home building business and they opened Nutrition Sensation in Monroe in 2010. Their business was going very well but the pair began to look for a location where they could offer more services. Lucky for us, Flat Rock had the perfect location. Huroc Park ended up being the ideal place, with its bike paths to the Metro Parks. This allowed them to create the physical aspect they wanted to include in their healthy lifestyle. In 2016, Nutrition Hub was born.
The center encompasses all aspects of nutrition and health that Jeff and Donna believed would help people achieve their goals, and oh boy has it!
The community has embraced Nutrition Hub; countless people have achieved their goals of a healthy lifestyle. Donna and Jeff’s energy is magnetic. They are so positive; know your name, your goals, your dogs, your kids, and the important events in their customer’s lives. They had a goal to be healthy to be positive and it resonates throughout their business.
The community loves them, and Donna and Jeff show the love back tenfold.
