Caledonia florist Mary Ann Schmitz is ready to retire after 65 years
CALEDONIA, Minn. – At age 87 and after more than six decades in business, Mary Ann Schmitz is finally ready to retire and sell Mary Ann’s Floral & Gift in downtown Caledonia to her great-niece.
Schmitz is selling the business and building to Aimee Welscher as of Jan. 1. She will help Welscher until she retires April 2 – exactly 65 years after she and her late husband opened the shop.
“Willie and I started the business on April 2, 1952,” said Schmitz, who was parade marshal for the local Founder’s Day Winter Wonderland parade earlier this month (on Dec. 2).
Willie died in 1994.
Mary Ann’s Floral was in two other Caledonia locations before the Schmitzes bought the house at 308 E. Main St. where the shop has been since 1955. It’s also the home where they raised their children, Ken, Steve, Bill and Debbie.
Schmitz said she is retiring for health reasons, and expects to miss operating the floral and gift shop. She plans to continue enjoying playing cards.

Potatoes and flowers and pies, oh my! Farmers markets opening for 2016 season
Farmers Market, which runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesdays, and farmers markets can be found throughout Racine County, as well, in Sturtevant, Caledonia, Raymond, Union Grove and Burlington — each offering different days and times of operation and its own selection of vendors (see accompanying list for details).
The Burlington Farmers Market, for example, opened Thursday in Wehmhoff Square, and will continue on Thursdays, from 3 to 7 p.m., through the last week of October. In its ninth year, the market features both seasonal produce vendors and artisans, with an average of about 20 vendors per week, according to Carol Reed, market manager.
Shoppers can find everything from early spring lettuces, spinach and rhubarb to hanging flower baskets and bedding plants, as well as locally produced cheeses, handcrafted soaps and jewelry, Reed said.
The market has a vibrant, community atmosphere and also offers entertainment, prepared foods and — new this year — craft activities for children, through a partnership with United Way.
“Our farmers are all very knowledgeable and good about sharing ideas, recipes and tips with shoppers,” Reed said.
In addition to cash, the Burlington market uses a token system that allows shoppers to use credit cards to buy tokens, good for purchases throughout the market. Vendors also accept Quest cards, from Wisconsin’s Quest food share program, Reed said. Quest cards can be used to purchase vegetable plants, as well as grown produce, at the market, she said.
