Stop and Smell the Roses with Sandie Sims at Schultz Floral Shop - ValpoLife.comFriday, January 22, 2016
Sandie resumed ownership of the shop recently and is glad to be back in Valpo.Sandie is a native of Valpo and when her husband got a new job in Crawfordsville, IN, she made the trek to be with him. But she couldn’t stay away from her city too long.“After being born and raised in Valpo, it’s such a difference being away,” Sandie said. “I missed it terribly. All of my family is here and anything you want to do is here in Valpo.”Sandie’s father, Tony, built the shop in 1969 and ran it until she bought it from him in 1996. Her father was a teacher who loved working with flowers so he opened the shop to do what he loved. Sandie followed in his footsteps, becoming a math teacher and then taking on the family business. She grew up working alongside her father at the shop, and it’s a pretty neat thing to say that you grew up around flowers every day.“We deal with a lot of different people,” Sandie said. “We get to be part of their special moments - a wedding, prom, engagement, new babies, birthdays. And we like to get creative. The people I have working for me do a good job and we have fun.”There are no set rules to what you can and cannot do with a flower arrangement at Schultz. If you can dream it, they can do it. One thing they really like to do it pair one of their gifts with a flower arrangement. This way the lucky recipient gets beautiful flowers, but something else that he or she can have as a keepsake. Schultz will also try to fit the tastes of the recipi... http://www.valpolife.com/58086
Small Business Spotlight: E. Stephen Hein - www.smileypete.comSunday, February 28, 2021
Pemberton’s to open his own shop.
Today, Hein’s floral shop has turned into a true family affair, with his granddaughter, Kelsey Hein Smith, having worked alongside him since graduating from Eastern Kentucky University in 2017. A floral designer and the store’s social media manager, Smith calls her grandfather PoPo – except during business hours.
“It’s weird to call him Steve,” she admitted.
Thoughtful, artistic expression has always been appreciated in the floral business, and remains a staple of Hein’s business model. While centerpieces and corsages are less common than they were at the start of his business, sending flowers across town – or even across the country – remains a popular action, and Hein can help with both. Some of his loyal clients utilize his services not only for local flower delivery but also to coordinate out-of-state arrangements for funerals or special occasions.
“We know what to say to the other florist, the dos and don’ts of what to use and what not to use,” Hein said, explaining that his clients appreciate his specific aesthetic. His penchant for communicating the specifics of that aesthetic when “calling out” orders to other florists hasn’t gone unnoticed, as the shop has often been lauded for orders that Hein helps coordinate across the country.
Former and fellow florists have also expressed their gratitude to Hein over the years.
“They have told me that when I set up shop in Lexington in 1987, I raised the bar for what florists do to make a show with their flower arrangements,” he said. “I thought that was a very nice compliment.”

Calif. flower shop with no connection to Capitol riot flooded with threats, negative reviews - SFGateSunday, January 17, 2021
Alberti’s business appeared to have been removed from the platform. However, Cudd’s business also has a 4.6 rating.) Two other florists bearing the same name in Kentucky and Scotland were burdened with similar harassment. Alberti said all of them have given up on deleting the comments, and are instead attempting to respond to each one in order to set the record straight. “I offered to send some people maps of the United States,” joked Alberti. “Most people apologize and then they reverse, but some are steadfast. My thing is, I understand the need to vent and get rid of that hostility, but just spend an extra five seconds of time to see that we’re not in Texas. The very platforms that these people are using to type these rants and tirades … it would take them less time to find out we’re not that business than it would take for them to write the post.” He’s concerned about what the future holds for his business, which has been around since 1973 and spans four generations. “We’re just trying to survive,” said Alberti. “Being a florist is hard enough. We don’t have a high profit margin. We do it because we love it and love flowers. To already be suffering through COVID and add this on top of it, it’s stressful.” source srcset="https://s.hdnux.com/photos/01/16/13/46/20494742/3/700x0.jpg 1x, https://s.hdnux.com/photos/01/16/13/46/20... https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Beckys-Flowers-Roseville-mistaken-Capitol-rioter-15871654.php

KOSA. Death threats have been left for Cudd at her flower shop, she told KOSA. Other businesses with similar names to "Becky's Flowers" across the country have also been targeted.

Amber Sergent told the Kentucky television station her family has been swamped with angry calls from people who are confusing them with Cudd's business. "Very violent language, I'll put it that way," Sergent said. The FBI had not listed the exact charges Cudd faces as of Wednesday afternoon.
