Grand Opening of Craisy Daisy, a floral gift and home décor shop in Mound City

Mound City, MO – Realizing a long awaited dream, Owners Tammy Killin and Susan Meadows are opening a floral gift and home décor shop in Mound City, Missouri. These two busy mothers have waited for the opportunity to get into business together. Susan says, “The biggest struggle in starting this endeavor has been the time constraints and adjusting each change in schedule, costs, expectations, etc. This adventure has definitely taught us to be flexible, patient and long suffering!”

The women are excited to continue the legacy of a floral shop in their home town of Mound City, Missouri. They will provide gifts, home décor and also a coffee bar. They are basing their business on Christian values and will provide a family owned atmosphere where all will be made welcome. Their desire is to own and work in an environment that inspires, and they want to share it with family and customers.

“Our aim is to provide high quality products and services that are cost effective for an array of customers,” Tammy says. “It is important that our store reflects our traits of integrity, a work ethic and a Christian environment. We strive to provide our services with a unique style, thus the name Craisy Daisy!” They intend to utilize local providers for products, as they want to encourage and support others in their community.

Both owners agree that they feel blessed to have had the resources of Northwest Missouri Enterprise Facilitation/Keli Morris to guide them. They say, “This service has helped us explore our options and resources and develop a concrete plan of action. We have felt encouraged, supported and educated and feel very blessed to have been able to utilize such a great service for small business owners.”
