Adams County resident Becca Muller is bringing her floral arranging skills and her love of natural and sustainable products to a new shop called LOCAFLORA Design in downtown Gettysburg.
The shop is located across from the Rabbit Transit Center at 201 Carlisle St., Gettysburg.
The warm and inviting boutique carries local flowers, plants, soaps, candles, and many other botanical gifts.
On display now are a variety of plants that can cheer up a household during the holidays, including Christmas Cactus, Norfolk Island Pines, and Lemon Cyprus.
“The plants allow people to get a bit of cheer in their homes. Something living that doesn’t have to be thrown away. It’s especially good if you have a small apartment,” said Muller. “We’re all paring down a bit. These decorations will last you the whole year long and hopefully beyond.”
Muller said she has been providing event and wedding floristry for the past year and half. “I was getting a lot of requests for individual bouquets and I didn’t want to have to say no. I’m really looking forward to sharing local sustainable floristry with everyone, and not just wedding couples. This is a great way to form relationships within the community.”
Muller said her flowers are all from local growers located with 100 miles of Gettysburg.
LOCAFLORA specializes in internet ordering from their website at http://LocaFloraDesign.com. Curbside pickup is available Thursday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Sundays 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
The shop itself is open Fridays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with no more than four people allowed at a time in the store. Facemasks are required.
Muller says she has been stepping up to the difficulties created by the pandemic. “It’s a challenge to figure out how to open a beautiful shop that you don’t want people to spend too much time in,” said Muller. “My goal is to make the best online opportunity I can.”
