About Us


Women Owned & Operated.

Katie Eckert-Prater and Molly Chamness are Co-Owners of Dragonfly Apothecary & Artisan Market located in the quaint downtown of Morganton, North Carolina.  This mother/ daughter duo have a passion for holistic and sustainable living.  They knew for years they wanted to start a business together.  Katie grew up in the small business world running the register and mastering social media marketing shadowing her mother while she ran an art studio and crafty retail store. Being entrepreneurs just made sense to both of them.


They both have a desire to live holistically using natural, non-GMO products and making sustainable living choices with reusable resources and products.  It's their mission to inspire a low-waste living that includes taking care of your mind, body, home and spirit in the process. They research to find the best alternatives for low impact solutions.  They have partnered up with vendors that share their values of reusable solutions, fair trade and equal employment opportunities for all, women-owned businesses, North Carolina made products and more.

They are both passionate supporters of the arts and have curated a collection of North Carolina artisans with a wide array of talents from woodworking to painting to ceramics.
