If you’re already familiar with our flower store, you know we have a soft spot for a good story. As storytellers ourselves, we write about the people we work together, our clients, work and our inspirations.
The Shopkeepers is a collective that shares stories from independant stores from all around the world. Their hugely successful following on their website site and Instagram page, has sparked interest from the community to curate a dedicated page purely dedicated to flower shops. We were excited to feature on this page back in April, and we have been falling in love with inspiring shops around the world, ever since.
Stephanie from The Lifestyle Editor, a writer for The Shopkeepers, invited us recently to be interviewed for a special feature! Here they asked us about what inspires us, how are work is influenced, our advice for other budding florists, and our challenges.
When asked about what we thought about the future of retail;
“With so much being able to be bought online, we all crave human connection. We believe the emotion that flowers gives, has stood the test of time, and will continue to do so. As far as retail in general, we are seeing a trend in people that desire a unique experience and that ‘warm welcome’. Everyone wants to be part of a special story, and we hope to re-define the ritual of giving and displaying the wonder of flowers.”
Thanks again The Shopkeepers, for having us as your very first flower store interview - we are honoured to be in your world of shops!
