Getting set for the season: Fimmy Ganshorn decorates a Christmas display in her new location at the Mall at Piccadilly.

Blooming in a new locale

Fimmy and Ed Ganshorn are heading west.

The owners of Flowers by Fimmy are setting up shop in the Mall at Piccadilly, across from Sport Chek on Monday, Nov. 2.

The site of the former kitchen shop, Fimmy will have 1,230 square feet to fill with fresh flowers and giftware.

“We definitely will expand the giftware line and have expanded the Christmas selection hugely,” she says, noting she will have an additional 500 square feet to fill with birdhouses, linens and other “funky” stuff. “We have some pretty cool stuff, but it won’t be available until January. Christmas is the focus when the doors open.”

Fimmy has expanded her lines of everlasting plants.

“It blows my mind with what they’re creating with rubber and silk; they’re meeting the challenge of busy people who don’t want to care for things but still like beautiful things.”

Fimmy says she and Ed are very excited about their move from one mall to the other and are already being made very welcome at Piccadilly. They look forward to giving the same service and selection with flowers and giftware for any occasion.

Flowers by Fimmy will still take custom orders.

“Sometimes people will ask me to create the perfect arrangement for somewhere in their house and that’s always fun,” she says, noting customers also email her  measurements of their homes while others bring in their own vases.

“It’s a custom place,” she says. “Most of my silk arrangements are one of a kind; that’s where my heart is.”
