Flowers to the People is a cozy little flower shop where we strive to create an atmosphere both fun and professional. Shopping for flowers should not be a daunting task, and we make sure our customers feel comfortable and leave happy!
Floral inventory, in applicable seasons, is purchased from local growers. This provides our customers with the freshest possible product while supporting Missouri and Illinois farmers. Check out our Facebook page to see where we're currently buying from!
In cooler months – or for special requests – our flowers come from California or South American growers that practice sustainable farming methods while offering superb employee benefits.
To minimize consumer impact, many of our hard goods (vases, buckets, ribbon) are purchased through auctions or second-hand shops. Even the shop fixtures were rescued from obscurity…talk about shabby chic!
We also compost all plant waste, re-use packaging materials, and recycle everything possible to keep trash output to a minimum.
We truly believe that fresh flowers, as a gift or personal treat, can brighten any room and any day in every possible way. Please call or stop by to experience Flowers to the People.
