Bourne Southern is a family owned and operated small business located near Hickory, North Carolina that began in 2013. Owners Anthony and Megan Bourne specialize in handcrafted inspirational goods and apparel that encourage, inspire, and uplift others with words; especially the word of God.
Bourne Southern began as a hobby for Megan as she began looking for ways to decorate her home on a newlywed budget. She started by painting wood signs and creating other home decor. Family and friends began requesting pieces for their own homes and Bourne Southern was born. Megan started selling on Etsy while continuing to sell locally.
In 2014, Anthony began helping Megan as her “hobby” continued to grow. In late 2015, Anthony and Megan began praying about the opportunity of running Bourne Southern as a full-time family business. After a direct answer to pray in March of 2016, Anthony left his job to pursue Bourne Southern full-time.
Since March 2016, they have continued to grow their business while seeking the Lord’s guidance along the way. In October of 2016 they moved their business from their tiny dining room and carport workshop into a 3000+ sq ft. workshop and warehouse.
Anthony and Megan are both born again believers who have been married for over 5 years. They have four small boys; Jace, Evan, Lane, and Rhys who definitely keep them on their toes! They enjoy spending time with family, hiking, fishing, home improvement projects and serving the Lord!
