Hey, it’s the boss’ chair.

Right, boss. If you don’t know the story, then 5-year-old Arabella approached her parents saying she wanted to open a flower shop in the garage.

Supportive parents Anthony and Jess wanted to help her achieve her dreams, but not convert the garage into a store.

The compromise was a roadside flower stand. It was the summer of 2020. Arabella was out on weekends and some evenings at the roadside stand to sell her flowers, much like kids sell lemonade or Boy Scout cookies.

It lasted all summer.

I don’t know how much money was raised from flower sales, but the proceeds went to “Ending Hunger”. Arabella never took even a dollar for herself.

Last summer. Same process. This time the money went to the Parkinson’s Society, a charity dear to the family.

You are now up to date. And this summer, the flowers won’t be sold at the roadside stand, but at a pop-up shop in Old Town Downeast Market Village. The address is 211 Main Street, Old Town. Hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Flowers. A few gifts. The owner herself. And JJ’s Jerk Shack food truck will be there to celebrate.

And this year’s charity? Another great cause. A Touch of Grace Flower Shop will donate 25% of all flower sales to NICU Northern Light.

This is good news in the community. Thank you Arabella.
