Me? Happy with my plants, happy with my flowers and even happier in my shop. A bit eclectic in taste, a little quirky, a little off beat because thats me and I always want to have something different for people to choose from. I’ve been a corporate girl, a self employed girl and an unemployed girl. I’ve been to TAFE and to uni. We are all the sum of our many parts and these are just some of mine.
I’ve been a florist for over 15 years and in my shop for 9 and I really want to get ‘it’ right for all my customers.
I’m up before dawn and at the markets 3 times a week to source the freshest flowers so you’ll always have the best pick. I love a good hunt so I’m happy to go searching for that special something.
About stems with style
Tracing the history of my premises I found that it has been a retail florist store for almost 20 years continuously. I love the thought that I am carrying on tradition and that the suburb has supported small retail business and a florist shop for all that time. I in turn support the local and wider community. I am an Interflora member which means I can organise delivery of flowers, gifts and plants Australia wide and World wide.
I am also part of the Nespresso recycling brigade where you can drop off your Nespresso pods for specialised recycling reducing unnecessary landfill. I carry a range of unique house plants, candles and giftware. Something for everyone.
I am part of the American Express Shop Small program where American Express supports small business by rewarding its customers for shopping at small businesses like mine.
I bought an established but struggling retail florist shop in 2011, renovated and rebranded and focussed my time and energy on quality product and customer service. Part of an ever changing strip of shops and cafes in the heart of St George. Close to trains, buses and hospitals Penshurst is a bustling little shopping community.
