In April of 1998, I started this journey and opened Rose of Sharon. Four years prior, I’d found this wonderful, beautiful and fun world of floral design. I had also known that I wanted to own my own business. And so Rose of Sharon began.
It began as a (very small) home-based business and grew into a full-time (sometimes more than full-time) business with multiple employees. Along the way, Rose of Sharon has had a few homes, including my home, at my parents’ nursery, at Drake Field Airport, and our current retail location in Johnson.
The Johnson shop was somewhat of an experiment. I’ve always loved designing for events (especially weddings). With this location, I was able to spend time deciding if I also loved retail. I’ve found that I really, truly prefer a studio model rather than a retail model for myself and for Rose of Sharon. After six years in our current location, I have decided to let go of my retail location, and return to a studio where I can focus on giving you the personal, individual attention you need to make your special moments shine.
My last day in the shop will be MONDAY, NOVEMBER 19th. I’ll be closed the rest of Thanksgiving week and moving the following week. You can still place your orders with me, and we’ll be fully re-opened at our new location on MONDAY, DECEMBER 3rd.
