Local shops see boost, smiles during holiday rush
When there are special events, it makes a big difference,” store employee Adrianne Wisnewski said.
This year, owner Denise Cardona decided to add Sunday hours, but Sundays turned out to be slow days, Wisnewski said.
Holidays sales were up from last year at downtown’s Wildflower gift shop, owner Adele Wise said.
“People seemed in good spirits and it didn’t seem as rushed,” she said. “We had less actual Christmas merchandise but we sold a lot of candles, jewelry and (home décor). Everything sold throughout the store.”
Wildflower is also known for is distinctive card selection, another popular choice.
At Auburn Blooms in Old Town, owner Lisa McNabb said the holiday season was a good one for the florist and gift shop.
“We were more prepared and things went pretty smoothly,” she said. “Even Country Christmas (held two weekends during December) didn’t seem so chaotic. … There seemed to be more people out there, but not as many in the store.”
Nevertheless, sales of fresh flowers and gifts were brisk.
“We sold everything,” she said. “There’s not much Christmas stuff left. I’m now stocking up for the next holiday (Valentine’s Day).”
At Back Country rocks and minerals, owner Dave Holtzinger described holiday business as better than last year for the store.
“The day Trump signed the tax bill, the next two days had happier (customers) than the day before,” he said. “People were happy and in a better mood. I can’t say it was the same for everyone, but that’s how it appeared to me.”
Stocking stuffers were flying off the shelves during December at Totally Cool Gifts in Old Town, store employee Arla Gibson said.
“Every day I worked, it was really busy,” she said. “During Country Christmas, it was extremely busy. I would come in after the weekend, and so many things were gone. We sell a little bit of everything because we have a little bit of everything. The old-fashioned candies are really popular, as are our gag gifts and we sold a lot of socks.” ...

At the US Botanic Garden, a pungent corpse flower brings a touch of the Gothic
By Adrian Higgins, Not to be eclipsed by Monday’s tango between the sun and the moon, the first of three corpse flowers opened unexpectedly Saturday night at the U.S. Botanic Garden and then spent Sunday in languid and stinky decline.By noon its central spire had begun to droop and its ruffled cape became frayed at the edges. In spite of its retreat, the corpse flower, or titan arum, remained impressive as the world’s largest flower and drew thousands of visitors to the botanic garden’s conservatory at 100 Maryland Ave. SW.Word quickly spread on social media that the bloom had unfurled and a line had formed by the 10 a.m. opening time. As the number of visitors thickened, the potency of the bloom’s notorious pulsating odor began to wane. Those who did catch the smell likened it to very old fish. “We did get a little whiff, which was, er, fun,” said Casi Hutchings, who arrived with her husband, Nick Hutchings, to catch the spectacle.The Arlington couple had tried to see the botanic garden’...Jul 14, 2017

Meet Adriana Quiñones, interim director of the Cape Fear Botanical Garden
Adriana Quiñones hated flowers as a child. Now she loves making the Cape Fear Botanical Garden bloom.
Paul Woolverton Staff writer @FO_Woolverton
Adriana Quiñones, the woman in charge of making flowers bloom year-round at the Cape Fear Botanical Garden in Fayetteville, wanted nothing to do with flowers when she was a child.It’s because her mother took up breeding daffodils when Quiñones was young.“She loved daffodils, everything about daffodils,” Quiñones said. The family’s yard was filled with the flowers, and springtimes were consumed with daffodil season.“Well, it just so happens my birthday is in April, which is the height of daffodil season in Ohio. So multiple times, my mom forgot my birthday,” Quiñones said.“I never had a Sweet 16 or anything like that," she said. "Totally forgotten in the midst of daffodil seasons. I grew up hating anything to do with flowers. Hating it.”But now Quiñones, who is 51, not only loves plants and flowers, she studied their genetics in... (Fayetteville Observer)Apr 13, 2017
