This article submitted by Linda Stelling on 12/10/96.

Two co-workers joined forces and opened Flowers by Us in Richmond last September. Mary Loesch, Lake Henry, and Brenda Lehmkuhl, Paynesville, had worked together and always dreamed of owning their own business. When the opportunity arose, they decided to give the new venture a try.

Lehmkuhl attended school in Brainerd for floral design and has 10 years of experience while Loesch has five years of experience in the floral business. ãWe felt there was a need for a floral shop in Richmond. It is a growing community,ä Loesch said, ãOur goal is to make flowers affordable for our customers.ä

Flowers by Us offers dried, silk and fresh flowers, balloons, candles, Beanie Babies, tree ornaments and more. They will make up custom orders, arrange flowers for all occasions: funerals, birthday, holiday gifts, centerpieces, anniversaries and weddings, or go to your home for custom decorating. Their shop is located on Richmondâs Main Street. The shop is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
