#020 - Florist Grace Salter Haskins shares her small business journey. From an early age, she knew that she wanted to open a shop. And aged 21, her dream came true when she opened Bramble & Wild in Somerset.
After originally planning on studying photography when she left school, at the suggestion of her mum, she started a floristry course and very soon fell in love with flowers. This was followed by an apprenticeship at a local college, tied in with work experience in a flower shop.
She opened her first retail outlet at the top of Catherine Hill in Frome. And then a few years after having taken on staff, she moved further down the hill to larger premises, where she's currently located. Her shop, which she fondly describes as a 'fancy shed', not only sells flowers but also gifts, gardening tools, seeds, floristry scissors, vases and stationery.
In her current role as Creative Director, Grace oversees the overall running of the shop and all the weddings. She also carries out the general admin. And recently has been spending more time growing flowers. During the interview, she also discusses using Instagram as a marketing tool, together with the impact of the pandemic on her business.
Listening to this episode, you'll hear how passionate Grace is about being as environmentally conscious as possible, not only from the products she sources to sell in the shop, but also with regards to packaging. At the end of the podcast, you'll discover her practical tips, which I'm sure you'll find very inspiring.
