say there is 6 degrees of separation, but here in Christchurch,
I think it is much less.
So what has me thinking in that direction today. I came across a business card today, while I was sorting my office.
It immediately brought to mind the business owner, and how
I had know her, as a neighbour, in Sunbeam Place in Halswell, when I lived there.
This particular neighbour is none other than Lynn McKinney from a business now based in Hornby, Interior Flair. For Lynn who I believe still lives in the Halswell area, it must be only be a few minutes to work even on a busy day.
Interior Flair is a gift and wedding hire shop. You can go to Lynn's website to enjoy and appreciate the range they stock www.interiorflairgifts.co.nz
Lynn started her business from home 20 years ago and it grew and evolved into what it is now, a very successful business. Working as a nurse, Lynn would do floral design and gifts from her home when she had the opportunity.
The business grew quicker that she thought it would, which required that she have somewhere to operate her business from. That's where I found her at work in Lincoln Road. I was impressed with
the lovely items available to buy and or hire. Lynn said "My aim was to set up a one-stop wedding speciality shop, so you don't have to be roaming all over town trying to find all the essentials such as a flower arrangements, table settings and materials - it can be taken care of here in one shop."
Lynn has a real passion for decorating and creating different ideas and styles and has found that a lot more people are using artificial flowers now. They are great in her view because they are less expensive, although
high quality artificial flowers are about the same price. Advantages of ariticial include they will not wilt, don't stain, are non-allergic and they KEEP for as long as you want to keep them.
I love shopping at Lynn's Hornby store, that's where you now find her.
So whenever I get the chance I pop in to see what I can find!
