Elsberry gets a new florist

Robin Stafstrom

Many who visit the Elsberry Floral shop on Broadway may have recognized a new but familiar face. Robin Stafstrom, who said she prides herself on being Elsberry’s number one fan, is now the new face and manager of Elsberry Flower Shoppe.

“I took over as the manger in June after the owner, Glen Bourbon, heard about my experience and love for flowers and gardening,” said Stafstrom. “I have approximately 30-years experience in floral design, both fresh flowered and silk.”

Stafstrom said she loves being able to do work at the Elsberry Flower Shoppe because not only does she get to maintain her creative style and stay local in the community, but it also allows her to continue driving for the Elsberry R-II School District and support “her” Elsberry Indians Basketball team.
