Vintage tea-cups, jars, tins and jugs adorn beautiful furniture inside the doors of Knighton Flowers in Leicester. Michelle Goldie’s flower shop is not just a florist. Of course the flower displays are amazing, along with the vases of flowers arranged amongst the quirky finds. White-painted salvaged dressing tables are home to where the French mirrors sit, covered with ornate jewellery and delicate hanging decorations; it’s just everywhere you look something catches your eye, with Michelle capturing the very essence of vintage chic.
When Jan Watters opened her self-titled floristry shop in September 2005, she realised a lifelong ambition for this talented florist. Like so many florists, Jan is a ‘career changer’, only following her dream of owning a shop after working in a busy florist for some ten years and prior to that for a well-respected, highly ethical, blue chip international retailer for 12 years.
