Chamber holds ribbon cutting at Mazie’s Flowers

Posted: Friday, April 10, 2015

Trisha Abbott opened Mazie’s Flowers on March 2 at 171 E. Morse Street in downtown Markle. Abbott has been a florist for eight years working out of her home.

The Huntington County Chamber of Commerce helped Abbott celebrate the opening of her first shop with a ribbon cutting on April 7. Abbott has been doing a brisk business of providing floral arrangements, mainly for weddings and funerals.

Abbott says she has always been creative and it was always something she has enjoyed doing for herself and other people. Mazie’s Flowers is named for Abbott’s grandmother Mazie, who was her inspiration with plants and gardening.

Mazie’s Flowers also offers tasteful, garden-inspired gifts and home décor. Abbott invites people to stop by for special gifts for family and friends or something special for the home.

Although she doesn’t specialize in any one type of arrangement, Abbott does lots of wedding and funeral flowers. Inside her store, which is where the old bank once stood, is the vault room where Abbott stores wedding decorations.

Mazie’s Flowers regular store hours are Tuesday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. For more information call the store at 758-2897.
