Melissa’s Story

Originally from Northeastern Pennsylvania, Melissa Bowman instantly fell in love with everything that Charleston has to offer. Through constant visits to markets and stores all around town, she quickly realized that Charleston was lacking a refined gifting option that collaborated all of the local talent into one place. It is through The Blue Root that she can combine her love for gifting, planning and decorating into a career she is truly passionate about. Melissa lives in the Isle of Palms, SC with her husband Ty, their two young children and two fluffy pups where they celebrate all of the special moments in every day.


The Blue Root lends a modern touch to the art of gifting. By offering goods sourced only from the Charleston area, you can feel good knowing that you are supporting many small businesses all wrapped up into one beautiful gift. Our mission is to feature artisans who work endless hours honing in and perfecting their craft and presenting their talent in a wood keepsake box to help celebrate those special moments in life. We deliver for free in Charleston County and can ship nationwide.
