Foothill Flowers turns 50

Our family enjoyed attending the 50th anniversary celebration of Foothill Flowers in downtown Grass Valley on Friday. Champagne was flowing, proclamations were read, and Marie (AKA, “Grass Valley’s Flower Lady”) looked radiant.

We mentioned the anniversary in our magazine’s fall issue. The store also is a stop on the new “Gold Country Vintage Road,” a scenic loop designed with vintage shoppers in mind.

“Mom and Pops” such as Foothill Flowers are the backbone of our local economy. We are regular customers. (The historical photo is from Searls Historical Library. The one with colorful Fourth of July bunting is by Kial James; it has been published in our magazine).
