PRINCETON — Susan Wright decided to use her more than 20 years of experience in the floral industry to recently open Homestead Flowers, located inside Good Scents Ltd. at 504 S. Main St. in Princeton.
“I enjoy working with silk and fresh flowers,” she said. “I decided it was time to start my own business.”
Wright is the younger sister of Eileen Wright of Good Scents.
“We decided we would help each other out by selling my wares through her store here,” said Susan Wright. “We thought it would benefit each other greatly.”
In addition to cash and carry flowers sold at Homestead Flowers, Susan Wright can deliver them in Princeton when her schedule permits for no additional charge.
“I can deliver to the hospital and funeral homes in town,” she added. “I am available for consultation.”
She also can make silk arrangements for homes for front doors or wall pieces. She can make custom orders, or people can pick up arrangements at the store.
Homestead Flowers is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The phone number is the same as Good Scents at 815-872-3687. Wright also has a Facebook page for Homestead Flowers.
