About the Owner
Hello! I am Nicole (O'Connor) Bradstreet. I am a wife and mom of 4 beautiful children. I purchased this business from the wonderful and talented Ms. Evelyn after spending 2 years as her assistant. We have carried on the over 30 year reputation of the freshest flowers, friendliest service, and most caring and accommodating team of consultants in Northern Michigan. We are a preferred vendor for the area's top wedding venues. Flowers by Evelyn has also maintained close partnerships with the directors and staff of our funeral homes in the area which allows for a seamless planning and delivery of your loved ones' memorial flowers. Upon our expansion into our new location we added Tuxedo rental services in Spring 2016.
Evelyn purchased this business in the 80's when there were several flower shop in town. Over the years she built the business alongside her husband and young daughters and outlasted many of those shops due to her earning the most preferred flower shop in Gaylord. As adults, Evelyn's girls helped their mom out at the shop in order to give her a day or two off. In 2005, Hannah met a new friend who just moved back to Gaylord. It was through that friendship that she invited Nicole to come work at the shop in 2010. Nicole found herself without a job for the first time in almost 20 years. After 10 years in the banking industry, the floral business sounded like a fun way to earn money while on the job hunt. Two years later Evelyn decided to retire as a young woman and handed the reins over to Nicole through the purchase of the "Flowers by Evelyn" business. "Flowers by Evelyn" continues to be an award winning flower shop, specializing in quality and service.
