We think everyone needs to treat themselves a little more with fresh flowers. No matter who you are or what you like, flowers are always a good idea! That's why we started The Flower Bus - we want to bring flowers closer to you, bring them to places you might already be, and give you the opportunity to pick your own stems and create the perfect bouquet at a price you like.
On 8/18 we had our first pop-up with our Volkswagen bus, a 1960 Kombi walk-through owned by Amanda and her husband, Brad - a VW fanatic through and through. It was at Annie and Oliver's in Midland; a children's boutique with super cute clothes, books, accessories, and toys! Chelsea, the owner, helped market the event and we think the word spread pretty well because the turn out was not disappointing by any means. Our customers loved picking out flower stems themselves and creating a one-of-a-kind bouquet that we wrapped up in brown paper and ribbon for them to take home. The customers that are self-proclaimed "non-DIYers" enjoyed picking out a hand-made bouquet by us that was already wrapped and waiting for somebody to swoop up and take home.
We also had cookies made by Coley's Sweet Treats that were THE CUTEST little blue VWs and yellow sunflowers. And we might add that they were absolutely delicious, too. We gave all our customers a free cookie to enjoy.
There are a couple more pop-ups scheduled - and we are working on adding more before the snow starts falling. See the list below for upcoming dates:
9/7 5-8pm and 9/8 10-4pm at Rebel Magnolia Flea Market in Saginaw

And be sure to keep up-to-date with more dates that are added by following our Instagram and Facebook pages, because we want to see you there! Fresh flowers for everyone, our new motto :)
