In 2017 we purchased this historic property, home of the original Laramie Floral. This house (build in 1915), barn (built in 1920), the vintage Lord and Burnham Greenhouse (built in 1926) and florist shop / now art studio (built in 1945) is coming back to life!  The slideshow has some before, during and current photos and we will keep adding.  The best way to see what is up is to follow our social media and our calendar.  

SHOP our online store OR come shop in person for gifts or make art in our NEW Art Café!  There is always something new going on here from drop in art projects to Art Kits for in studio or take home / party art.   Watch for more of Tara and René’s artwork on our online shop for free shipping or studio pickup.
