Michelle Harrison Gillaspy and Sam Gillaspy opened a much needed floral, gift shop in Kearny.

Angela Ramirez of the Kearny Chamber of Commerce was present at the ribbon cutting ceremony to welcome and wish the Gillaspys much success with their new store. Michelle comes from a family that helped pioneer Kearny she is very excited to be able to open and run a new floral and gift shop.

“There is a high demand and the previous floral shop really had no one to run it,” Michelle said.

Michelle’s husband Sam works for the Kearny Fire Department and as an EMT. They both have a strong commitment to the community and want to help in any way they can.

Michelle is trying to build a variety of items in the shop. She will help with party planning, provide floral arrangements for birthdays, weddings, funerals or any other occasion. The store hours are posted, but if someone really needs something her personal number is available and since she lives in Kearny she will do whatever is needed to provide for the community.

Michelle has many items on consignment to help other people sell their products. Michelle feels that everyone is trying to make a living these days and so many people have different talents and putting things on consignment will help others get their talents noticed. Dale Gillaspy is one such artist. He turns wood into art, vases and even takes requests. Dale’s website is www.turnsandtwists.com. Dale can take any piece of wood and turn it into something. Dale uses all different types of items and incorporates different things into the wood copper inlay, emerald, and turquoise. Some of the wood he uses is juniper, maple and mesquite. He truly enjoys his work and it shows.

Susan Mapes is another talented artist who paints. Susan takes old windows and paints floral scenes on them. Jerry Buchan has jewelry on consignment. Wanda Koellen provides candles and jewelry. There are local photographers that have pictures and advertising available.

The store offers beautiful floral arrangements, live plants, bamboo, jewelry, homemade cards, candles, photography and paintings. The Copper Rose has a wide range of delivery available to area’s including Florence, Globe, Mammoth, San Manuel, Hayden and other requests. Michelle can be reached at 520-363-ROSE. They are located at 354 Alden Road in Kearny. Email is thecopperrose7673@gmail.com.

We wish them much success and happiness in the new endeavor!
