If you have ever stopped by to admire the cooler at the Art Knapp Flower Shop, you’ve seen the abundance of fresh seasonal flowers available throughout the year. Have you ever wondered, “Where do the flowers come from?” Most of the flowers we work with are grown right here in BC. Each week, we make a buying trip to Vancouver, where BC flower growers deliver their fresh product to the largest auction market located outside the Netherlands. While there, we also purchase imported flowers from around the world to complete our extensive selection from which we create the floral gifts for all your life’s occasions. Our talented team of floral professionals is ready to serve you with flowers to help welcome the newest bundle of joy, help make your dream wedding a reality, or simply say; “Happy Birthday!” or “Hope you’re feeling better soon.”
We are updating our website so now I can catch everybody up on what has been happening in our Flower Shop.
We moved our department from one end of the store to the other so we have our flowers closer to all the Jewelry, Lotions, Scarves, Hats, Purses and Giftware that keeps arriving daily, it seems.
Joining Vicki, our very creative designer/manager, we are fortunate to have Paul from Alberta join our design team. His designs are quite unique. Wow, is all I can say! Paul has traveled extensively in the US and Canada teaching new and innovative floristry to floral designers in the industry.
We now not only have Vicki and Paul in the design room, but our new designer Cheryl who is extremely talented as well. Also, Daughter Erin is back part-time while she is studying at TRU, and Krista, who has a Residential Decorating Certificate. Krista is taking care of the Gift Department and makes everything look pretty while also becoming a ‘budding’ floral designer.
So you can see we have many wonderful changes – come and browse – it’s worth it!
