HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I'm so excited, nervous, and thrilled to be starting a new year with Pine State Flowers. 2015 was such a whirlwind! The shop hired its first employee, bought a small delivery vehicle (so my old pickup truck can get a rest), and did its best to keep up with an exploding demand for deliveries and weddings. 

In 2015 Pine State Flowers put $23,345 into the hands of local farms and independent artisans.

One of my goals for this coming year is to document my experiences and challenges running the business. It never seems like there is enough time to stop and reflect on the ups and downs, but I always appreciate it when I do, and I'm committing myself to record those thoughts here on the blog. I'm not sure how things will change next year, but I'm looking forward to the challenge of making Pine State Flowers the best platform for local flowers it can be.

REOPENING SCHEDULE
Shop reopens Friday 1/15 with winter hours (Fridays & Saturdays 10am-5pm)
Deliveries resume Tuesday 1/19
