Day One Hundred Five ~ My Florist
The iconic My Florist sign, still stands tall and beautiful on the corner of Mcdowell and 7th Ave, the only evidence of a storied past, beginning in the 40’s when the legendary Vada Schwartz established My Florist, a flower shop and earned a colorful reputation by her flamboyant style and love of the color purple and orchids. The store closed in 1996 and reopened a few years later as a restaurant, still bearing the name of My Florist, and went on to become a dining hotspot in the Willo community for many years. Unfortunately, it did not weather the economy and closed its doors in 2010. The building stands empty today but thankfully, the beautiful sign is still intact.
