A flower shop owner, who had to leave her home in New York to move to Washington, D.C., is in a hurry to get her flowers.
The flower shop has a very specific goal: sell flower to people in need.
The owner, Heather Skelton, was born in the Bronx and moved to New York City at age 14.
When she first got her first job at a flower shop, she got paid a salary, $10 an hour.
The shop was in the basement of her parents’ house, which she shared with her mother and three siblings.
Skelton said the job was the first one she ever had where she was not on her own.
She had to make the effort to earn tips from customers.
When the flower shop moved to the basement, Skelson started collecting tips from the customers and started selling flower for $10.
Skeeters, the owner of the flower boutique, said she started selling $15 flowers and $20 flowers.
When I started selling flowers, I was able to start earning money.
Shelton said that in order to survive, she needs to earn enough money to live on.
The flower shop is one of several in the city that sell flower in need and is part of the nonprofit charity, Save Our Flowers.
Sculptor Darrin DeMunzel said the charity has to pay for some of the expenses for the nonprofit.
“We have to pay to get the flowers in front of people and to get them out,” DeMunez said.
The charity helps people who have lost everything in an emergency or for some other reason, including rent, food and transportation.
The nonprofit, which is named for Darrine DeMunes, a former Marine and Marine Corps veteran, started with three locations.
They were located in Brooklyn and New Jersey, and one was in Washington, DC.
Selton said her shop is a good example of how a flower business can provide a respite for people who can’t find work.
“The community has been so supportive of us, and we really appreciate that,” Skeltons said.
“We can’t do this alone.
It takes all of us to make this happen.”
