Small Business Feature: Heritage & Bloom

Heritage and Bloom is a small-batch accessories brand, founded in 2020 by Allison Song as a way to intersect her passion for handmade accessories and exploration of her cultural heritage. The significance behind the name “Heritage & Bloom” is to represent the relationship of having a foundation through history and roots, and the promise of a beautiful future.

"I feel incredibly blessed to have a business in the lovely city of Fort Collins. The community has been so supportive, especially during the pandemic, and I am SO grateful for every customer that has purchased our pieces for themselves or as gifts," says founder Allison Song, "to empower and strengthen the many wonderful women-owned businesses in Fort Collins, it is important to shop at the businesses you want to see thrive and succeed. If not with your dollar, highlighting businesses through word of mouth or on social channels is incredibly valuable as well. "
