Valentine’s Day 2013,without a wire service

It is almost a year now since I’ve made the decision to give up the wire services, and truthfully, I think it is the best thing I’ve ever done.
Mother’s Day was actually a joy to get through.

All my orders were local. I never went farther than the Applegate Store or to the city of Jacksonville. There was no stress to fill orders in towns farther away, and at the end of the day I actually had a smile on my face.
So now I am looking forward to Valentines Day, even though, of all the holidays it is my least favorite. But we will endure.

We will have lots of beautiful flowers: roses, Gerbera daisies, lilies and lots more.

We will have plenty of blooming plants including bulb pots with a primrose, daffodils, hyacinth and tulips.  Other plants will include mini roses, kalanchoe, and more.

This year in our store we are carrying local hand crafted jewelry from local artists Janet London, Janine Leonard, Jill Cobb, and Annette Trujillo.  There is a definite variety here.  From agates to hand fired glass to fused glass.

We are also carrying local hand crafted cards from my own mandala cards to Annette’s nature cards, 5×7 cards ready to frame.  Janet London also has some special pressed flower Valentine heart cards that include a heart bookmark.  These are very nice and the bookmark is a gift for the whole year.

I have some Dennis Minear hand crafted vases for sale also.  They would make a beautiful container for the pretty flowers.

We really are trying to keep things that are made in America in our store, which is a great challenge, but we are getting there.


We make all our arrangements to order, each one is a custom design,  no two will ever be the same.  We also offer a 7 day guarantee that your flowers will last at least 7 days or we will replace them,  no questions asked.

So this Valentine’s Day, if you are looking for something special and one of a kind,  give us a call.  We would love to make a beautiful flower arrangement for your loved one.

Thank you in advance for your business and supporting your local brick and mortar flower shop.  We appreciate it so much.

Here’s wishing you a love-filled Valentines Day.
