Rob's Flowers & Gifts: A family's dream

Thursday, May 24, 2012

When Rob Knowles was 16 and working in a flower shop, he dreamed of owning his own business. On Aug. 20, 1988, he and his wife, Debbie, opened Rob's Flowers & Gifts on North Main Street.

Aug. 20, 2007, 19 years later, Debbie and Cassie Knowles took their love of scrapbooking to the next level by opening Scrapbooks from the Heart on North Westwood. September 2009, the Knowles--Rob, Debbie, Andy and Cassie moved both businesses to its current location at 1404 W. Vine St.

Rob's Flowers & Gifts is a full-service florist with something to fit everyone's budget. They have flowers and gifts for every occasion whether it's to celebrate the birth of a baby, wishing someone happy birthday or expressing sympathy for the loss of a loved one. They offer both fresh and artificial arrangements and a full line of gifts. Need a decorator for an event in your home or office? Rob's can provide that service. With their wire services, Rob's Flowers & Gifts can send flowers worldwide.

Scrapbooks from the Heart is a retail scrapbook supply store. In addition to supplies, they host parties and classes. They also can design your scrapbook pages, projects or albums. With their new custom die cutting machines, they can make that special something to add to your scrapbook. For those who love scrapbooks, but don't have the time, bring in your photos and memorabilia and let Debbie or Cassie put it all together for you. Visit the Dollar Zone featuring more than 1000 items for one dollar or less.

Both Rob's Flowers & Gifts and Scrapbooks from the Heart are family-centered businesses. They want their customers to feel like family. The Knowles want all the products they sell to be something people can be proud of and something they can be proud to put their name on. Both businesses are open Monday - Saturday, 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. For flowers or gifts, call 573-785-8661 or for information about scrapbooking, call 573-686-8429
