Proprietor Nancy Anderson makes use of every inch of space in her shop – the room is filled to the ceiling with shelves of blooms, vases, succulents and various art pieces. The fresh cut flowers are showcased behind beautiful white French doors, making the endless assortment of colours pop through pretty windowpanes.
