Beach Plum Flower Shop
“Farm to vase” is the self-described style of Beach Plum Flower Shop known for its stylish seasonal arrangements packed with locally grown blossoms. As a result of the coronavirus, the shop now offers a bounty of house plants and on-line flower arranging workshops (participants pick up fresh flower kits prior to each class) that have been such a hit, the store plans to offer them through fall.

Sandra Sigman, founder of Les Fleurs, developed her romantic, garden-style design aesthetic from time spent in Paris, where she also scoops up antiques to sell in her enchanting flower, garden and home goods shop in Andover. Devotees appreciate her delicate, chic arrangements, which she teaches them to make through private and group workshops in her store and during annual antique-buying trips to France. During the pandemic, Sigman has dropped off floral bouquets to senior centers, healthcare, and assisted living facilities around the North Shore and beyond.
