On 18th August, Hailsham Gift and Homewares shop Maybugs defied the economic gloom by opening their new shop. Flowers By Maybugs was officially opened by MP Nus Ghani and the Mayor and Mayoress of Hailsham.
John Dale and Greg Rose, the couple behind the highly successful Maybugs have been planning this expansion for over a year now, and have swung the doors open on their contemporary florist which is located in Vicarage Field Hailsham, right next door to their existing gift shop.
“It’s all a bit surreal really, we’ve secretly been in training as florists for a long time now, and even our families didn’t know what we were up to. It’s been such a big secret to keep, but we wanted it to be a huge surprise. Plus with all the negative retail news, we are so excited to be bringing some positivity to Hailsham High Street, and get the message out there that our High Street is alive and kicking.”
“Hailsham has so many wonderful independent businesses, and it always surprises me how few of the local residents know about them all!”
“Flowers by Maybugs is not your ordinary florist. We source the most beautiful and freshest flowers from around the world and arrange them into gorgeous displays using the latest styles and techniques. Not only that, but we also have a huge selection of the finest silk and dried flowers available to purchase. We can work to any budget, so whether you’re planning the wedding of the century or just want a little bunch to brighten up your kitchen we can help. Plus we can send our flowers, arranged by us, anywhere in the country the very next day, we will never pass your order onto another florist.
