Jessica began her sweet journey in early 2012, with a Farmer’s Market carrot. As she tried her hand at baking, she soon discovered her home kitchen oven was too small to keep up with the volume of baking orders. Going back to family roots and traditions, she delved into the realm of chocolates and confections. Her first menu items were Rocky Road Fudge, Cookies & Cream Fudge, Peanut Butter Truffles and Handcrafted Marshmallows. After attending her first holiday bazaar, she was determined to expand her business.
In 2018, she opened her brick and mortar shop where she expanded into curating retail gifts from other small businesses and hosting events. Lily & Mae, reflecting Jessica’s roots, is named after Jessica’s grandmothers, Lily Mae and Anna Mae.
Our mission at Lily & Mae is to create a memorable shopping experience by helping our customers find the perfect handcrafted chocolate or artisan gift, by supporting other small businesses and local talent, and by creating memorable events.
