NEW SPONSOR: Cases Golden Leaf Florist & Gifts

-->



So, you know that florist that you always nearly crash in to when it is raining or snowing and you’re trying to stop at the bottom of Highland Avenue past the library as you get to Southgate but you can’t stop because your husband has not taken your car for new brake pads despite your repeated attempts to get him to do so, your pleas for your safety and the safety of his children (think of the children!) but he continuously just won’t do it (true story)?   They are a new sponsor for FTM!

Case’s Goldenleaf Florist at 2704 Alexandria Pike in Southgate, KY (www.casesgoldenleaf.com) has been in operation since the 1950’s and under its current name for more than 20 years, but it is under new ownership only since July of 2012 and the Fort Thomas-native owners have already made some exciting changes to the store.  The website, for example, is new and not only does it highlight all of the impressive store offerings, but it also allows one to purchase from the website AND any online purchases are delivered for free.  Their online catalog shows many floral arrangement options, handcrafted soaps, Kentucky Cream Candy, and their neat cement garden pieces (in-store only).  Additionally, they are adding other gift items including Yankee Candles, jewelry, and bourbon balls and assorted chocolates.  And unique items such as home décor, handmade knitted baby items, and even some UK gear.  They’ll make a terrarium for your office or arrangements for your events such as weddings.

I know what you’re thinking: “how do I get in the parking lot”, or, “aren’t they always closed; it’s always so dark!”  Or, maybe you’ve been before and found the prices to be higher than average.  Well, the owners are aware of the concerns and have made strides toward correcting what they could.  Prices have dropped on items throughout the store and they’ve added better lighting and livened the place up with a new paint job.
So, if you haven’t tried them before, I suggest you give Case’s a chance.  Stop in for some loose flower sales or a fresh bundle (starting at $11.95 per bundle).  Loose flower sales is a European practice of selling 8 or 10 stems for the buyer to arrange him or herself and is a practice that many florists find cumbersome, per the owners, but is growing in popularity with young people, especially, who are looking for an economical way to decorate.

Or, stop in for Valentine’s Day (yes husband, it is STILL on February 14 this year, Hallmark didn’t cancel it!).  A dozen roses with baby’s breath and tree fern is selling for only $43 including tax. 
For our readers only, Case’s Goldenleaf Florist is having a Valentines Giveaway! Be on the look out for more information.

Check out their website at http://www.casesgoldenleaf.com/ and stop in to see all they have to offer.  Tell them FTM sent you!
