Happy Thanksgiving!

Flower Peddler offices will be closing at noon on Wednesday, November 21st and will be reopening on Monday, November 26th. Our Flower Girls need some time to spend with their families, eat way too much food, and rest up for the official start of the holiday season. As always our website will remain open, and orders placed during our closure will be processed in the order in which they were received.

For all you hardcore Day-after-Thanksgiving Shoppers, be sure to check out the Black Friday Bonanza Specials hosted by The Little Black Boxes. Over 60 of your favorite online boutiques offering incredible promotions for a few hours only beginning at 5 a.m. EST, November 23, 2007. You're going to LOVE what we have in store for our retail customers!

Sorry wholesale customers. These specials apply to retail orders only.

The Expansion Chronicles

We promised that we would share some photos and stories of our recent business adventures. And as some of you have pointed out, we haven't done it yet. We WILL chronicle the entire journey, really we will. We've just been a wee bit busy getting ready for the holidays and had to put our diary on hold. We know you'll understand. :)

Just so you don't give up on us, here is a little view of one area of our front lobby. If you take note of the floral arrangement on the console; that is what we used to do (and the story behind our business name). We think that soap is a lot more fun!

Where's my stuff?

If you live in Canada and you have been placing orders with stores in the US, you may be asking this question. It seems as the value of the Loonie rises so does the volume of cross-border ordering. Things are a bit backed up in customs causing delays in packages being released for delivery. So for our Canadian customers, we ask for your patience and PLEASE order those holiday gifts early. We don't want you to be disappointed.

Aren't these adorable?!

Here's a little preview of our upcoming Holiday Line due to launch on November 9th. We just love these little gift boxes!! This set includes two of our special seasonal handmade soaps in a sweet little festive giftbox tied up with a pretty satin ribbon. These would make great hostess gifts, teacher gifts or perfect last minute gifts for anyone on your list. The box is attractive and sturdy enough to re-use for storing all sorts of little treasures.

We'll post more previews shortly!
