Emily Sexton, Founder of The Flourish Market in Raleigh, North Carolina, sat down with us to share some of her thoughts on Sasa Designs.
What made you purchase Sasa Designs? First of all, I loved the unique design of the pieces. And then to know that they were made by courageous women - that sealed the deal!
What do your customers love about Sasa product? My customers love to buy Sasa products for themselves, and they LOVE to gift the earrings to their friends and loved ones. I always look to buy pieces for our store that will demand a compliment when our customers wear the item, and that rings so true for all of the Sasa products that we carry :)
What impact has our partnership had? While I know that my customers have been able to provide dignified jobs to the women with which Sasa partners, there has been a big impact on the women in my community that shop at The Flourish Market. I teamed up with the Sasa Team to put together something very special for our dressing rooms in our flagship Raleigh, NC store. Hanging on the wall is a beautiful picture of the women that make the gorgeous Sasa Designs products in Kenya and they wrote a message of encouragement to our customers that inspires them to overcome their setbacks and use their strength and power to change the world. It is so moving for our customers to read, and I love that they can leave our store empowered by the women with which we partner with across the globe.
What's your favorite piece of Sasa? The Equator Hoops - I love that I can wear them every day but they give me a bit of an edge. I like to think of myself as an every day relatable gal with a dash of spice, so these earrings are my spirit animal (wink). You are slaying the earrings!!!! Our customers can't get enough!
