Sauk City floral shop a breath of fresh air
It’s a colorful, aromatic, cheerful item that comes at the best and worst times in anyone’s life.
Turning flowers into works of art has been a passion of Ruth Schreiner’s her entire life.
Her shop, Prairie Flowers, at the corner of Dallas Street and Phillips Boulevard, has been in business for more than ten years in Sauk City.
The shop is a like an indoor terrace complete with trickling fountains and small, lighted trees, combined with artistically displayed gift items throughout the store.
She is well known in the area for her use of the freshest flowers available.
“I process all my flowers and make them so they last,” Schreiner said. “I buy the best quality you can buy. I’m very proud of the quality of my flowers. I have a standing order on the best quality roses you can get. And my prices are cheaper than most florists.”
During the summer months, many of her flowers are supplied by local growers.
“They give you that gardeny look and I just love them,” Schreiner said.
