Airmail may be history, but sending flowers hasn’t lost its power.
You have people like Nancy Krause — and her just-opened Lincoln Park shop — to thank.
She’s stocked her sweet corner storefront with a plethora of garden antiques: vintage wire birdcages and trellises, weathered wooden tables and charming rickety chairs, a collection of milk china vases, and ornate gold frames.
Contemporary Chive pieces make perfect mini homes for tea roses, gumfrina, or blown-out lilies. Unusual flora (sculptural coral greens, magnolia leaves) add depth to a bouquet of hydrangea, baby sunflowers, or zinnias.
Choose a vase made from recycled glass or take it up a notch and let Krause pick the perfect vintage vessel for your arrangement. She’ll even tie a vintage hankie on it for an extra-special occasion.
Business will bloom.
