Our New Little Shop....Remade, Again

In June we re-opened our doors at the Irwin Street Market.  We first started here in 2006, when I quit my corporate radio marketing job, and jumped full-hearted in to flowers (something I've been doing since I was 16 years old).  Flower Bar grew very quickly, into three locations over a short period of time.  After several years, I decided to move the business away from the day to day deliveries, and to just focus on weddings and events.

Well- we've come full circle.  We're back and we're thrilled to pick up where we left off, in one of the coolest parts of Atlanta, and now-- just off the Atlanta Beltline (which didn't exist when we started)!

What I may be most proud of is that the majority of our build out and set up used recycled material and/or repurposed equipment.  Take a look....

Our wall, separating the market's library area, is made of recycled French doors...

Our windows are made from a collection of old antique windows, some of them very old!
 This is our galvanized table from our original shop, which I purchased as a recycled item at an old restaurant supplier back in 2006.
The bar...oh my favorite piece!  I was just about to have a bar built, when I found a married couple selling their home bar, which was never used in the husband's man cave. Hard to believe, and what a waste- I'm glad I saved it!!
The cooler I purchased from a restaurant supply store.  It was a Target cooler, and they switch out their coolers every 4-5 years, so I know it's in good shape!  You may not see it clearly, but on the little black shelf are several fine liquor bottles recycled from The of our favorite REAL bars. We put flowers in them, cause that's what we do!
Here I have some flower quotes I really love.... that's sort of like recycling words of wisdom. :-)  My favorites are "I must have flowers, always, and always" - Claude Monet  and "Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them." - A.A. Milne
Flower Bar is a full service florist in Atlanta.  We do daily delivery, special events, weddings, weekly accounts and production services.  Come by just to smell the flowers, or pick out one stem, or come by to discuss your next big event- either way we'd love to see you!
