When I had my shop in Beacon, I always had my eye on the gorgeous space across the street, which featured this really beautiful brick archway and so much natural light. I knew it would make the most perfect space for an airy, plant-filled gift shop, so when Courtney moved in, fresh off the heals of a round-the-world journey, I was really excited to see what she would do with the place. She has a great energy about her and her eye for good finds and design really resonates with me… which worked out really well when I moved – a lot of items from my shop found a new home in hers!. I also really admire the determination it took to take an existing business, learn a whole new skill on the fly, and make it her own. She contacted me recently to photograph some arrangements to feature on her new website in time for Mother’s Day, so I got to spend last Tuesday morning back on Main Street Beacon hanging out in this beautiful shop window surrounded by stunning florals. Does it get any better than that?
