Flourish Market Opens
With a mission to help survivors of sex trafficking, The Flourish Market held its grand opening this weekend in downtown Raleigh. The shop began as a mobile outfit driven around town by owner Emily Sexton and her husband, Chris. The two opened a brick-and-mortar shop on Tucker Street, carrying women’s clothing, accessories and gifts from brands that support vulnerable women around the globe by providing jobs. The store has partnered with the Red Cross for Human Trafficking Awareness to collect clothing and toiletries for women rescued from trafficking in the Raleigh area. Shoppers are encouraged to bring items to the store. For more info, visit theflourishmarket.com.
