Local florist donates arrangements

The Columbian

BRUSH PRAIRIE — Private studio-based florist Stacey Young recently donated flowers to doctors and nurses in the Camas and Vancouver area. “So, I did something today that both warmed my heart and made me a bit sad at the same time,” Young wrote on the business’s Facebook page, Stacey’s Flowers. “You see, one of the wholesalers at the Portland Flower Market closed their doors due to the COVID-19 virus for an undetermined amount of time, and another is struggling because of a decrease in sales and suppliers overseas not being able to ship product.” A few shops, including Mayesh Portland and Frank Adams Wholesale Florist, were giving away boxes of flowers to local florists so they could make arrangements for the community. “I jumped on the opportunity to give deserving people here in Clark County a little sunshine,” she said. “I provided the vases and labor to spread flower love around town.” She reached out to Barre3 studio, where she is a member. She created 23 arrangements and the staff of Barre3 delivered them with a special note to doorsteps as a surprise on March 24 and March 25.
