A few weeks ago, we were surprised to see an advertisement for the Pasadena Flower Shop.
We went there to check it out and quickly realized it wasn’t a new place.
We had just stumbled across it by accident while walking down a street, and we were hooked.
The shop is owned by a family that has been around since the 1920s, and it is known for its colorful, hand-crafted bouquets and other floral displays.
The owner, Cindy Williams, has been working for nearly 40 years to expand the shop, and she said that the family decided to open the shop because of a need.
“I’m trying to expand my family,” she said.
“My husband, my two sons, and myself have all passed away, and I’m trying now to fill the void.”
Williams said that she and her husband, Bob, opened the shop in 1987.
The family originally lived in Sarasota, Florida, and had purchased the shop from the family who owned it when it was still a family-owned business.
Now, the shop has a new owner and a new name: Cindy Williams and Her Flower Shop in Sarasotas.
“It was an idea I had, and that I wanted to continue to have in the future,” Williams said.
A large part of the business’s success is the collection of flowers and other decorative items that are displayed inside the shop.
“The whole show, the whole store, we are a family,” Williams told us.
“So many things are handmade.
So many different types of flowers.
The flowers are beautiful and unique.
We are a showroom.
There is no other place in the world where you can have this.
It’s just something you just go to, you just see.”
A flower show is a special experience for Williams and her family, and they say that their shop is the only one in Sarasowas that showcases all of the varieties of flowers that have been grown and produced over the years.
“They’re not just any flower,” Williams explained.
“We are a different kind of family.
And I think they really appreciate it.”
And the shop is a wonderful place to visit, especially if you have the money to splurge.
The prices at the flower shop range from $25 to $60 a head.
The price is about twice what you would pay in a shop like the one at Macy’s.
And if you do get caught in a crowd, you can order flowers in advance.
And because the store is a family run business, you are guaranteed a spot in line.
“You have to pay upfront and you have to wait,” Williams joked.
“But we are here and we have to show you the way.”
