Who are we?
My name is Susan de Vreugd, and after 25 years in paid employment in a flower shop in the Bezuidenhout district of The Hague, I decided to venture out on my own and my shop About Flowers was officially opened on 17th May 2009 by alderman Frits Huffnagel. Prior to the opening, a camera crew from the RTL4 tv show “I’m starting my own business”, constantly followed our preparations for the new shop.
I have now been the owner of About Flowers for morealmost ten years. Together with Sander Eijkelhof, we pride ourselves on our exquisite floral creations. In the meantime we have acquired a significant client base who regularly return with great satisfaction to our flower shop.
We are members of the Sustainable Florist Barometer, an independent and officially mark for a florist which demonstrates the range of flowers and plants and operations in the store are more durable. For certification a florist must meet mandatory requirements and achieve a minimum number of points through selection measures. About Flowers has achieved the highest level gold, which we are committed to sustainability in all facets. The certificate is in the shop for inspection.
