Out of flowers? Flour? Businesses contend with supply crises
But small businesses can have an advantage over larger ones in a supply crisis, says Sunder Kekre, an operations management professor at Carnegie Mellon University's Tepper School of Business. They don't have the bureaucracy of large companies, and that gives them more flexibility in coming up with a solution, he says.Small companies are also better able to stay in touch and negotiate with customers."You might convince them, 'You don't need it now, why not get it in two weeks,'" Kekre says.When Hurricane Irma forced Miami International Airport to shut down in September, flower shipments from South America — which supplies the majority of roses, carnations and chrysanthemums sold in the U.S. — couldn't arrive. But the floral industry is set up for such contingencies, and distributors quickly arranged for shipments from other parts of the world. Pliska got flowers from Kenya in that case."When I get a shipment, I can see all the airline tags from different places," Pliska says.Rob Starr had to adapt after the business that produced talc used in his pottery company's clay had to stop making it because it contained asbestos. After a long search, Starr found another supplier for The Potting Shed with a similar talc — but it didn't fare well in the kiln."Fortunately, he was a big fan of The Potting Shed and went to work on reformulating with the new talc," says Starr, whose company is located in Saxonville, Massachusetts.Starr also had an extended search for a new supplier for picture frame parts. The vendor he used shut down in 2004, and Starr couldn't find one that would make high-quality parts. He stopped producing the frames, but kept looking. Just last year, he finally found one, and has returned the frames to his product line.Now Starr faces another shortage: A second component for his clay is no longer available. "This could turn out to be a real dilemma for us if we cannot find an alternative," he says.Sometimes supply disruptions force companies to make major changes in how they do business. When Italy went through an economic crisis nearly 10 years ago, companies went out of business, including some suppliers to Mark Fink's business selling imported hardware to furniture and cabinet makers. And his biggest vendor began turning out substandard products that Fink's company, Wood Technology, couldn't use. When it was clear Fink wasn't going to get the quality he needed, he had t...Sep 22, 2017

Santa Ana florist Has Been Delivering the Goods on Valentine's Day for 95 years
Harry Macres: “Give me every flower you got.” After a few of those giant orders, Macres was able to open his first shop, across from Carnegie Hall. The business thrived for a time. Family lore has it that the mob failed to pay a big bill, then came back during a national floral convention and paid with bootlegged liquor during Prohibition.
The family fled, opening Macres Florist in Anaheim in 1922. After launching a second shop in Santa Ana in 1935, the family further distinguished itself in 1948 by introducing a revolutionary way to keep flowers fresh at the Rose Parade—sticking them in cylindrical, glass Alka-Seltzer bottles. There were 3,500 roses, 1,000 birds of paradise, and two dozen fresh orchids on that float, which won an award.
“They used all different bottles,” Michael says. “But back then, Grandpa was using Alka-Seltzer like it was going out of style. In the ’40s, you had to go to market at 2 in the morning. You know how long it took to get to L.A. in the ’40s? And there was no air conditioning. They didn’t have an ice box when they first opened.”
In Orange County, especially in the 1940s and ’50s, they found what Tricia calls “a flower lifestyle.” Californians loved to order flowers—everything from corsages to wear to church to arrangements to decorate their home foyers. The grande dames of central and north Orange County held massive parties with a bouquet tucked in every niche. Many had large weekly floral orders.
“Way back then, Grandpa and Pop (Albert) knew everybody in town,” Michael says. “They knew who owned what businesses and what lodge (private and service clubs) they belonged to.”
Their telephone number was a woman’s name (Kimberly 2-8841), and it was easy to market through the service clubs.“Adult women used to wear a lot of corsages,” Tricia says. “When the Broadway Theater across the street was the big thing in the ’40s, guys would come here to take their dates to the movies and buy them a corsage.”
The Macreses are starting to eye retirement, and their son, Daniel—a successful attorney in Washington, D.C.—has no interest in flowers. Sadly, Michael and Tricia are the end of the line.
When they do decide to close up shop, I’ll wish them well. They’ve worked so hard to continue the family tradition, and they are a part of my fondest memories. I’ll miss them. I imagine some of you have people like the Macreses in your lives: the baker and the candlestick maker who mean much more to you than their bakery or their candlesticks. It’s part of what makes living in this county so charming—we’re divided into 34 small towns, with all the humanity a small town has to offer.

Arts and Flowers Garden Club get together
The October Garden of the Month is the home to Mr. and Mrs. Rodney Latham.
The next meeting will be held Nov.10 at the Washington Carnegie Public Library. The program will be “When and how to prune.”
Sheila O’Maley presented the program on papercrete pottery. This is a technique she learned in her Master Gardener’s class from Lee Coates. Because of the ingredients of Portland Cement and perlite the flower pots are lighter than other concrete pots. She provided instructions so members could make their own flower pots.
Also attending were Sue Colbert, Linda Cornelius, Helen Dashnaw, Sue Garrett, Kay George, Janet Goodwin, MaryLou Gotwald, Sue Gray, Sue Harper, Kathleen Harris, Jean Hoffman, Bonnie Jones, Shirley Jones, Becky Kremp, Tunia McClure, Linda Myers, Fran Neal, Rose Palmer, Jan Smith, Cheryl Thomas, Jan Wake, Joan Colbert and Coleen Swartzentruber.

'Maine Flowers and Gardens' bloom
Maine's flowers and the gardens that host them. Luise van Keuren studied art at Manchester College, Carnegie Museum of Art, Maine College of Art and other institutions. She began her career as a scene painter for a professional theater and later worked as an illustrator for various publications. After her role as a college professor in the humanities designing sets, she spent 10 years as director of a multi-arts professional public arts series.
For the past three years, van Keuren has been artist-in-residence on Nantucket in a residency focusing on painting the island's preserved lands. Her interest in Maine flora focuses on people in gardens and on natural and "gone wild" flora, always painted from life. Her still life work comes from flowers gathered and painted in the studio, especially the historic flora of Clark Island. It has been exhibited in Maine, Vermont, Pennsylvania, New York and Delaware.
Like most artists, Needham was attracted to art from childhood. She attended a high school dedicated to the arts in New York City, continued her studies at the Art Students' League in the city and continued her education at Pratt Institute of Art. Needham moved to Maine and became the owner and manager of her own gallery, exhibiting her work as well as art by her client artists.
Needham’s art reflects a strong interest in painting from life. She has pursued a fascination with gardens and flowers painted at the homes of friends and numerous plein air locations in co... (Courier-Gazette & Camden Herald (subscription))
