Lilburn resident Nikki Fields has been making floral arrangements since she was a teenager, learning the business from her mother Inez Fields who owned a flower shop in Tucker. Four years ago Nikki opened her own shop, Old Town Flowers & Gifts on Main Street in Old Town Lilburn and she says.
“God opened this door for me, and it’s been wonderful,” she says. “I try to focus on our area, it’s more personal. I’m a one-woman show — I make everything and I take everything. I like to take care of my customers.”
Nikki not only makes each and every arrangement, but also personally delivers them to addresses in Lilburn, Lawrenceville, Norcross, Snellville, Stone Mountain, Tucker and several other local zip codes as well.
In addition to flowers, plants and silk arrangements, Old Town Flowers & Gifts has a selection of gift items created by local artists including handmade jewelry, candles and scents, sock monkeys and a surprise or two.
Nikki says Valentine’s Day is the busiest holiday of the year for florists and adds, “You can’t go wrong with red roses.” Though roses are the most popular gift on February 14th, Old Town Flowers & Gifts also has plenty of other great options as well including candy, teddy bears, gift baskets, balloons and cards.
