Enclosure Cards, Another Way To Save A Buck...Literally

Our flower shops are full of all sorts of products that we use every single day in our business but are what we refer to as "give away's", things like wrapping paper, tape, flower food, and enclosure cards.

None of these items by themselves amount to a great deal, but day in, day out, they rob from your bottom line a penny or two at a time. So when the opportunity presents itself to save a bit on these essentials don't pass it by. That is why we knew that adding quality low priced enclosure cards to our wholesale line was a must.

After all, we all want to save a buck..........

Floral Delivery Boxes......Save Save Save

Since we started wholesaling florist supplies we have asked our customers for suggestions on basic floral products we should inventory for flower shops. The response from our florist customers has been incredible and we have received a ton of suggestions, many of the products we currently carry are based on those suggestions.

Not wanting to fall into the same trap of carrying massive inventories that most florist supply wholesales suffer from, and simply add to their selling price we really try to stick to the basics found in every flower shop. So we are very pleased to announce we are adding another "basic" to our line of florist supplies.

We're in the floral container business

Since we started wholesaling florist supplies through Odyssey a little over a year ago we have been amazed at the level of support that retail florists have shown us. What started out as a way for us to move some excess inventory in the florist supplies we were purchasing has taken on a life of it's own. Over that period what we have heard time and time again was "when will you start carrying floral containers".

When we started this "odyssey", floral containers were just not something we envisioned ourselves stocking, but guess what?

A box, is a box, is a box... or is it?

Packaging.... It can enhance or ruin the presentation of beautiful flowers. So why not use the best packaging to show off your work that you can. If price is the issue, we can resolve that.

Now we're in the floral foam business.....

Chrysal Floral Faom ELITEWe knew this day would come, just didn't know how soon. After all how could we offer a line of florist supplies for flower shops and professional floral designers and not have something as basic as "floral foam". Well folks, we now have floral foam, and not just any foam.

We took our time sourcing this one, we looked domestically and overseas, our two criteria were quality and price, and we are pleased to say we met both. In fact I believe we outdid ourselves with this one.

Our teddy bears are on the water!

Teddy BearFrustrated  with receiving wire orders that include "$10.00" for a bear (that you really only see $7.30 for) and having to fill the order with a $6.50 bear!

Now the problem is solved! Well it will be in about 4 weeks when our first container of bears hit landfall. Until then they are sailing the open sea on a slow boat "from" China

Another exciting week at Odyssey, Bling, Bling

SurpriseWhat a great week, we had a load of new samples roll in and the response to them was incredible. The best part is that each one will be a major money saver compared to typical wholesale pricing! Gotta like that...

We love receiving samples, it's like going to a floral design show, you come out of it refreshed and with renewed enthusiasm about retailing flowers. It really gets the creative juices flowing as you imagine all of the wonderful floral pieces the samples will allow you to create for your flower business. It's like winning a flower shop lottery... well maybe not quite the same as you still have to buy the goods. But you know what I mean.

An Easy Solution For Hydrating Flowers

A fast way to hydrate flowersWe've all been there, our fresh flower order arrives late and we have a big job to get out the door. Unfortunately, that does not leave enough time to properly hydrate the flower prior to their being delivered and we all know that is asking for customer issues.

So delay the order or not hydrate properly? Why choose either when there is a simple and inexpensive alternative?
