About Sweet Blossom Gifts
Sweet Blossom Gifts is an independently owned and operated business based in Asheville, NC, a beautiful city in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. Inspired by the long, rich history of craftspeople in Appalachia, Michelle and Michael Porterfield decided to found Sweet Blossom Gifts in 2012. With backgrounds in both the arts and organic agriculture, they knew the importance of supporting the crafts people and independent businesses that make our life unique and beautiful.
Sweet Blossom Gifts isn’t just an e-commerce site where you can buy something, it is a movement, back to the roots of people working together so that everyone wins. As our Sweet Blossom family grows, we are able to give back, not only to our local communities, but ones that we may never set foot in. That is why we work with independent women artists all over the U.S. who make each piece by hand with the utmost care and love for their craft. We also donate a portion of every sale to the Women's Empowerment Initiative to better the lives of women in developing countries. So your purchase is not only supporting the artists who make your handmade item, but also women and their children around the world. We feel really good about that and we hope you do too as you shop with us.
Each piece of jewelry that is hand stamped, or each leather wallet that is sewn, is strengthening the fabric that makes our life special. Thank you for taking the time to join us on our journey. We look forward to making a difference, no matter how small or large it may be.
Your friends at Sweet Blossom Gifts.
