HAMPTON -- "I love it here. I absolutely love it here!" said Cindy Willis, owner/operator of the Seacoast Florist Shop. She has recently moved the business to 10 Depot Square after 13 years at their Route 1 location.
"I've been wanting to relocate for about 5 years," she explained, "but I didn't want to leave the downtown area. I really like being a part of the community."
When the former tenants moved out, she wasted no time.
"This just looks like a flower shop to me," she beamed. "When it became available, I jumped at it."
Cindy has left the original tin ceiling, which helps to give the shop its quaint and inviting atmosphere. But she will be installing a cooler for pre-arranged flowers.
"I want people to be able to touch and smell the arrangements. That's what flowers are for," she confided.
