Like most little girls, Lacie Holland dreamt of her wedding day from childhood. She couldn’t imagine that her childhood play would become a career.

Real life interrupted Lacie’s wedding dreams after starting her own family. She moved to another community but felt called back to Buffalo. She jumped at the chance to return to her roots when she learned that a retail space was available downtown and hasn’t looked back since.

The decision to come home to Buffalo changed everything for Lacie and her sister Kacie. They partnered to start Nora Emerson with their children in mind, using the names of their oldest children to start a local family business. Now their thriving business not only supports their families, but helps support other small businesses in the community.

Lacie loves being able to walk to work from her home, stopping at Maple and Main coffee and interacting with other businesses in town. She knows how much hard work is put into opening a business and want to support her fellow business owners. This hard work is something that she wants to showcase to her daughters. She shows them every day that if you work you can achieve your dreams. Her top priority is being able to leave a legacy in Buffalo for her two daughters.
