There’s A Mobile “Build-A-Bouquet” In Buffalo
Nothing gets you in a good mood like flowers can. They're always a welcomed site and in the summertime, they're plenty of them to choose from.
Now, you can build your own bouquet of flowers at a mobile flower Volkswagen called, the "Petal Pusher."
The business was started earlier this year by owner Samantha Reidy.
“I can make something at any price point for anybody,” Reidy said. ‘If you want pastels, if you want bright and cheery- whatever it is, I can make something.”
Reidy wasn't in love with her job and wanted to do something she loved, so moved back to Buffalo from New York City to start The Petal Pusher. The business runs out of a 1963 Volkswagen Transporter, which is named Stella.
“I’ve seen a few businesses like this across the country, and I thought ‘Why can’t Buffalo do something like this’?” Reidy said. “Buffalo is such an amazing city and we capitalize so much on our summers- I wanted to be a part of that.”
You can find the Petal Pusher at the Downtown Buffalo Country Market on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., at Larkin Square on Fridays from noon to 2:30 p.m. and at the Hamburg Farmers Market on Saturdays from 7:30 am to 1 p.m.
They also do weddings and festivals!
