I have shopped here for special presents for ten plus years and the staff has always been knowledgable and helpful. When we needed to make head garlands for a play they helped us pick pretty but inexpensive materials and showed 3 of our group how to contruct them. They have unique selections in several catagories that you can't find anywhere else in the area (which is why its a fun place to shop even though I hate shopping). This is one of those rare places that you miss stopping in at when you move. The floral arrangments are always beautifully done. Just tell them how much you want to spend, a hint about what kinds of flowers, and they do the rest. Neither me or any recipients have ever been disappointed.
