SPOTLIGHT // Georgian Bay // Collingwood Flowers & Home Decor
Spring 2018 // It's like spring every day at Collingwood Flowers & Home Decor.
THE PLACE: On Collingwood’s historic main street, the old Smart’s Flowers location has a fresh look and a new name, Collingwood Flowers & Home Decor. Owners Craig Ashton and Guy Laporte also operate the Craigleith Manor Bed & Breakfast and were very familiar with Smart’s, so when the opportunity to acquire the business presented itself, they didn’t have to think for long. Ashton has years of experience in interior design and floral arranging and had a vision for how to reimagine the historic space. They both wanted it to be more than flowers. Now, there’s a very carefully curated and thoughtful selection of urban chic home accessories that complements the fresh flowers.
