Shop Talk: Sidney House of Flowers


The most enjoyable?

The most enjoyable is working with flowers, making floral arrangements and seeing the final product, and when customers for funerals or weddings give me good feedback — especially in the case of a funeral. It’s a sad time, but if people really like the flowers, that is helpful (to them) on a bad day.

What are some advantages as well as drawbacks of doing business in this area?

The advantage is getting to see people. The drawback is that in a small town, there is not a lot of trade going through. People don’t have money to buy flowers unless it is necessary. That hurts a little.
