However, a few months into operating at their current shop on FM 1660, Misty and Shawn found they needed more space.
Because of that, Misty said they plan to open a second location by mid-August in downtown Hutto that is about 500 square feet larger than the original store.
“We reconfigured our current shop over and over and over, trying to make that space work—which it has worked well for almost three years,” Misty said.
Shawn said he and Misty plan to keep the FM 1660 location open for at least some time before deciding to either close it or operate both stores.
Hutto Flower Market offers flowers and arrangements both for everyday use and for special occasions.
Through a close relationship with their wholesaler, Misty and Shawn hand-select every flower that goes to the store. To ensure the flowers are fresh, they do so on a near-daily basis, Misty said.
“Our customers know that whenever they come in to pick up flowers, they’re fresh,” she said. “We buy in smaller quantities. That way we can restock often.”
While flowers will remain the business’ bread and butter, Misty said the larger, more centrally located shop downtown will allow Hutto Flower Market to branch out.
The new location will include a boutique section with clothing and home decor, which Misty said will help to make the store more of a destination in downtown Hutto.
“We’ll have clothing, shoes ... kind of a one-stop shop,” Misty said.
Misty said she is excited to form relationships with more customers in the new, more centralized downtown location.
“We’re there for every aspect of everybody’s lives, from births to deaths to everything in between,” Misty said. “You get close to people, and they kind of become friends that become family.”
