Our story begins in 1966, when Beth Fluke opened a fresh-cut flower shop in Kennebunkport, Maine. She called it The Dandelion. Never one to settle, Beth quickly outgrew the sleepy town and made the move to Philadelphia, where she shifted her focus from flowers to handmade jewelry.
A true family business, Beth’s daughters Leslie and Lellie grew up in the shop. Memories were built within its walls and meetings were always planned around naptime. After exploring other passions, Leslie and Lellie decided to follow in their mother’s footsteps and run Dandelion together.
Today, our flagship store can be found in Ardmore, PA, with three more locations throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey. And while growth often forces change, Dandelion’s mission remains evergreen—to support artists, foster community, and ensure a hand-picked experience for each and every customer.
