Rivers Floral Design and Gifts

My baby sister finally opened her own flower shop. This is good news for she is so overflowing with talent that I am sure the thing will soon be in Forbes Top 10 which in turn would give me a very wealthy relative to lend me their oceanside retreat in Barbados and the private plane to get there.

Do us all a favour if you live in the Guelph area and stop by and buy lots of stuff. I need a vacation!

And "no," she did not ask me for a free plug! I am just very excited for her... except she ought to try and sell thimbles as well!

  1. I haven't seen the shop, yet, but I'd like to!

    I've worked with Jane at Martin's (www.martinflowers.com) and I know this new store will be a hit.

  2. Ryan,
    Thanks for the other plug! Very nice!
    I guess I should have mentioned my OLDEST sister, too! She is just so... established!

  3. Will try and help her (and you) out next time we're in the area. My wife is a florist as well, but gave it all up to be pastor's wife.
    If you permit me a personal anecdote, I used to help out in the flower shop in the summers while I was in the seminary. I wasn't very good, but it didn't stop me from trying. My favorite line when people would come in and buy one of my "arrangements" was, Hey! That's pretty good for a guy.

    By the way Marlene's extended family still owns the franchise in Winnipeg. It is Academy Florists or www.academy-florists.com.

  4. Can you send some flowers to Alfie for me as condolences for their defeat in the next round. Thanks!
