Business blooms on Lakeshore

Enter the serene atmosphere of Pure Flowers at 40 Lakeshore Drive.

Pop of colour: Monique van Lindert rearranges floral offerings at her newly opened business

Enter the serene atmosphere of Pure Flowers at 40 Lakeshore Drive.

Owner Monique van Lindert favours simplicity and likes her world to be earthy, clean, fresh and open. Built by husband Jan from birch wood harvested on the couple’s own property, Pure Flowers’ displays are natural – reminiscent of a forest.

Employed in Askew’s Uptown floral department for three years, van Lindert wanted to set her own pace and make her own decisions about her surroundings and what she sells.

“I buy as much local as possible and 80 per cent or more of the flowers are B.C. grown,” she says, noting she is very familiar with and often buys through the Vancouver Flower Auction in Burnaby, the second largest flower auction in the world.

“I buy twice a week from them and I buy locally from April to October,” says Van Lindert, pointing out she does not buy from wholesalers, so her flowers are always fresh.

She specializes in unique floral arrangements with a European flair, delivers in Salmon Arm and can provide flowers for any event. As well, van Lindert carries several decor items with a wide range of prices.

“I wanted people to feel they could come in so I have something for every budget.”

To order an arrangement, call 778-489-5110, fax 877-452-8944 or visit monique@pureflowers.ca.
