Delightfully small flower shop: Size doesn't diminish the sweet fragrance
There cannot be a smaller flower shop in the entire bay area, or one on a busier street. But size doesn't matter when the shop looks this colorful and inviting. The Bay Bouquet Floral Studio is on Platt, one of our one-way streets heading into the downtown. My recollection from when I was very little and my grandparents lived at the end of Hyde Park Avenue is that this was once a farm dairy store carrying fresh milk, cream and eggs. As I picture going in, I think they had loaves of white bread, too...funny what the mind does when you try to bring back old memories. The florist shop is easy to miss as you speed by, but if you slow, it is the sweetest and most welcoming little shop you'll ever find. It claims it produces "Custom designs with panache." I believe it.
