Our Brands and Products

Where are your products made?

Whenever possible, we choose products that were made in the USA. Some of these products may contain components that were made elsewhere, such as a piece of jewelry that contains beads made in India.

You can check out our brands to see where they are located.

Some products are made in China. Most of these items we source from companies within the United States. Few products are ordered directly from China.

If you have questions about a particular product, please reach out and ask, and we will do our best to get the information to you.

What are "Amy Lee Jewelry", "Amy Lee Books", and "Shane Lee Books"?

Amy Lee Jewelry, Amy Lee Books, and Shane Lee Books are the owners' brands! Amy and Shane are the husband and wife owners of Flourish Gift Shop. We humbly began our business as authors under the pen name "Lee", which is where everything began.

From there, Amy expanded into jewelry-making and beaded bookmarks. She began selling at craft shows under the name "Amy Lee Books and Beads", with her jewelry line branded as "Amy Lee Jewelry."

We continue to write and create jewelry, so we kept these names as brands within Flourish Gift Shop.

How do I get my products in your store?

If you're a brand, artist, crafter, author, or have some sort of product to offer, please feel free to reach out at We work with wholesalers or on consignment.

We are extremely selective in our curated selection of products for a number of reasons, including but not limited to quality, cost, brand values, whether they fit our aesthetic, and even whether or not another store nearby carries a similar item. Since our store is located within a mall, we don't want to take away from other small businesses that may carry something similar.

Please don't let that deter you from reaching out. You can't know if you don't ask, and your product might just be the next big thing at Flourish!
