How We Got Started

Mandy J Florist began in 2011, The shop is named after my daughter Amanda, she is a graduating student of Almont, Class of 2017, "Mandy", J  is  "In Remembrance of my late husband Kurt.

With the help and perseverance to begin my life long dream, and of my late Fathers dreams of having a flower shop, I dedicate my dreams to my Father, "Papa Joe", who had been there for me, supported me and helped me  figure my life out "now", even though he has not been here physically, but he is here with me spiritually. Thank you for my dreams becoming a reality, and for not ever giving up! And thank you to my Husband Don for helping me and supporting my dreams.
