With EDC assistance
By Teresa Bigham/The Hesperian-Beacon—
LOCKNEY – Thanks in part to the Lockney EDC, Curtis and Joy Dalrymple, owners of Joyfulea Creations & More, will be adding a fully functional flower shop inside their thrift and consignment store, located at 118 E. Shurbet in Lockney.
Beginning Nov. 1, residents will no longer need to travel out of town to get fresh cut flowers. Dalrymple has four years of experience in a flower shop. In fact, she owned Tulia Floral shop for four years. She has received two certificates for floral design from Amarillo College.
Dalrymple and her husband said they are set on making their business in Lockney a vital part of keeping Lockney growing.
“We have called Lockney home for four years. This is our home, and we are proud to be part of the community,” said Dalrymple. “We look forward to offering all the help we can, and we are proud to offer top of the line flowers for all the floral needs here in Lockney.
“Our goal is to keep money turning around in Lockney instead of having it go out of town. For every dollar spent here locally turns around in Lockney two more times to support other businesses as well.”
Besides flower arrangements, she plans to offer daily fresh cut flowers as well as silk flowers, wedding venue flowers, balloons such as mylar and latex, mums for homecomings and corsages for baby showers and weddings. As well as potted plants, funeral arrangements and ceremony arches for rent and so much more.
“I want to add a reminder service as well. I have set up a system where I can send you a text to remind you that you have a spouse birthday or anniversary coming up,” she said. Dalrymple also said, “without the support of our local EDC, we couldn’t have done this. They are helping us make our dreams come true, and we are incredibly grateful that the EDC board believes in us.”
Residents who have not already been in Joyfulea Creations & More, should stop by and see what they offer. Customers can book a private paint party or join in on one offered to the community. There are holiday items to bring back all of the wonderful childhood memories as well cherished Precious Moments collectables and many other collectable items.
When it is time to start planting those spring flowers and vegetable plants, Joyfulea Creation & More will be offering all those four and six packs of starter plants.
