WAXHAW – Sweet T Flowers has rebranded as Sweet T to expand its business to include retail rarities, workshops and events. It has also moved into The Mill on Main, a turn-of-the-19th-century cotton mill.
Tina Enyart said her six-year-old company had outgrown its space and outgrown flowers as its primary business.
“We love Waxhaw and when the opportunity came up to take the largest retail spot at The Mill, we jumped at the opportunity,” Enyart said. “We have created more than a store. We have created an experience that you simply cannot find in the Charlotte area.”
Sweet T, which has always featured American-grown flowers and recycled vases and plants grown by a local nursery, is taking a deep dive into retail with 2,400 square feet of space to house many products and gifts.
All retain a meaning behind them, including:
• Industrial lamps made by a local veteran.
• Products made from recycled or upcycled materials, such as hats made from tent fabric from Greenville, S.C.
• A candle company that supports the special needs community by employing them as wickers of their products.
• Jewelry, food products and gifts hand-made by local artisans from the South.
It will offer workshops highlighting local artisans, as well as display work from the Waxhaw Arts Council.
Sweet T donates flowers to Hospice of Union County every week. The business also works with Soul-Tides Ministry, selling bracelets to support girls and women in Belize in the battle against trafficking.
“Nothing comes in or leaves here without having a meaning close to my heart,” Enyart said. “I want to be proud of what we do every day and that only happens with the right people, the right selections, world-class attention-to-detail. And we have all three.”
