Hi, My name is Leslie Kirkland and I am proud to introduce myself as a vendor of the Emporium. My story begins back in 1996 when I started The Enchanted Florist. I began by selling flowers curbside during the major floral holidays. It then grew into a unique and fun flower shop with our first retail shop at the A Street Marketplace. After a few moves and 20 successful years later, I ended up selling the shop so I could have more time with my kids and some personal time off. After terribly missing flowers, I am so happy to have an outlet again for my creative endeavors. My passion is still flowers and always will be. Flourish is a booth where you can find gifts for any occasion. Items range from potted succulents, fun plants, to one of a kind vintage items, hand painted signs, and now offering fresh wrapped bouquets which are freshened a few times a week. You will also find unique furniture pieces. I also enjoy recycling, upcycling, and repurposing furniture. Over 80 percent of the items in my booth are handmade. Other items you will find in my booth include handcrafted flowers made out of crepe paper, real air plants, woodland moss hangings, vintage style posters, hand crafted bigfoot lightboxes, chic wreaths, faux and dried floral arrangements, my own potpourri blends and handmade beeswax candles.
As you walk into the Ashland Artisan Emporium, my booth is second row from the left, third booth on the right. My booth space (#426) is named Flourish.
