The PickUp 2.0

Tags: The PickUp, Hilarious, Open Studio, Routine, So Local

The LoCoFlo PickUp has been improving flower lovers’ lives for a few years now. PickerUppers signed up in the winter. After great anticipation, the PickUp revved up in April. LoCoFlo cranked out locally grown bouquets of flowers once per month through October for pick up at the shop. Floral joy for all.

So, what about version 2.0? How can the PickUp improve your life even more?

Imagine this: A dark auditorium. Standing room only. Steve Jobs walks across an empty stage in his black mock turtleneck tucked into unbelted jeans with white sneakers (I know, but it’s just not the same with Tim - where was Queer Eye anyway?). Edge of our seats, mystery, nerding-out, etc. what is THE NEXT BIG THING?

Oh yeah the LoCoFlo Seasonal PickUp!

We are now offering the PickUp not just once a year. More than twice a year. Not even only thrice a year. But fource a year - the PickUp every season! You can now PickUp all year. No more waiting through the dreary winter months. No more missing the PickUp during the holidays. Non-Stop PickUp. Lit!

But that’s not all. We totally BK'ed the PickUp. You can have it your way. Choose the dates you want (as long as it’s a Wednesday). You can pick up every week during the season, or every other week, or every Wednesday for just one month, or go old school and pick up every third Wednesday (that would be weird, why every third Wednesday? whatever). You get the idea. The options are endless - well not really - but you get to choose your PickUp dates. Sick!

Stick around after your PickUp for our Open Studio event, every Wednesday 4:00-8:00. Make an arrangement with your PickUp or enhance your bouquet with some extra.

So, there it is. Kinda like when cheese showed up inside the pizza crust, you thought the PickUp couldn’t get any better and BOOM!

Open Studio - Your Wednesday Night Get-A-Away

Tags: Open Studio, Friends, Routine

“Aren’t you the flower shop that is never open?”

That’s not the response we are hoping for when meeting someone new, but we hear it.

We’re not a retail shop. Most of our work is for events, classes, subscriptions and deliveries. So, we get it.

But, come on, we’re open anytime for orders or appointments. Plus, we’ve got Sat@LoCoFlo where you can get your flower fix every Saturday 8:00AM-12:00PM. Stop over during the 32nd Street Farmers Market.

Still jones'n for more local flowers? We got you.

Open Studio is now every Wednesday 4:00PM-8:00PM. Plus we’ve teamed up with Remington Wine who is offering a 15% discount for your drinks and snacks on your way over.

What is it?

Open Studio is a self-directed flower design event. It’s super casual. Bring a vase or buy one from us. We have the flowers, the corkscrew, and everything else you need for a magical evening of floral enchantment.

Come solo for some alone time with flowers, or bring friends for a unique social outing. (Please give us a heads up for groups of more than four so we can prep.)

How it works

Just drop in. We sell flowers by the stem. You pick them out. Make an arrangement as big as you want. Designers will be available for critique and advice.

Open Studio is a great mid-week get-away. Practice what you learn at our classes, prep for Bloom Battle, make your weekly arrangement, de-stress, so many possibilities. The flowers will change each week so you can make something different every time.

So, yeah, we are not never open. Saturday mornings and Wednesday nights. Totally make sense.

Improve Your Life for Only $210 (plus tax) - The PickUp!

Tags: The PickUp, Open Studio, So Local, Hilarious, Routine

Imagine you could go back in time to make a different choice. Maybe you would make a decision with your heart, instead of your brain - like selecting UMBC for a first round win on your bracket. Maybe you would go against the crowd and keep your online personal data secure by never joining Facebook. Maybe you would act like a normal human and not use a secret home equity loan to get your super-rich buddy out of a bind.

We can’t go back in time. We live with busted brackets, busted data, and busted leaders. But we can imagine a future where today’s decisions make our future selves not busted - decisions for an improved life.

Fast forward to next New Year’s eve. You are totally smashed and get reflective while Auld Lang Syne is hazily sung in the background. You ask yourself: What did I do this past year that was awesome? What decision could have I made that would make me say right now - Sweet Baby James, that was the best thing I did all year and I am better for it!

Let me help you out. The answer is The PickUp. This game-changing, can’t miss, no regret, best thing you will do all year panacea is a monthly subscription of locally grown flowers offered by LoCoFlo. It isn’t even difficult to obtain this sweet elixir. All you need to do is fill out this form and fork over a little scratch, or you can just show up at the shop each third Wednesday of the month April - October. (Update: now seasonal and available year-round - check out our The PickUp 2.0 post.)

Here are some made up quotes overheard at The PickUp last year:

“I’ve lost weight since joining The PickUp - I wasn’t even trying. In fact, I am eating more and exercising less. Plus my hair is thicker and less grey. It’s magic!”

“I’ve been feeling real frisky since my partner signed me up for The PickUp! I’ve been showing how much I appreciate it with some special attention." (I’m pretty sure that means sex.)

"The flowers have a calming affect on my children. They are delightful - the flowers, not the kids. The kids are still monsters, just a little more bearable.”

“After I joined The PickUp, my boss gave me a pat on the back and raise! Thanks LoCoFlo!”

“I’ve traveled the world, met with shamens, gurus, holy people. Nothing could cure my ills - then I found The PickUp.”

“Everything is better! Everything is wonderful!” Then fancy-pants actually started signing “Pure Imagination” from Willy Wonka and twirled out of the shop.

Joining The PickUp makes you the kind of person who says “Hell yes I picked the Retrievers, totally called it”, “no way I’m giving that nerd my info”, and “yeah, you’re on your own with that Stormy chick, bro”.

Join The PickUp. Your future self will thank you.
