Bloom and Buttercup, a flower, candy and gift shop, opened Dec. 21 at 1842 Central Ave. NE.
“Opening day was pretty wild with a lot of people in here. The Mill Northeast across the street and Maya Cuisine next door bring a lot of people in,” said Jessica Paine, who owns Bloom and Buttercup with her husband John.
The couple lives in Northeast and John works as a bartender at the 331 Club. Jessica recently received a graduate degree from the University of Minnesota in Landscape Architecture and previously worked at Bachman’s and Dundee Nursery.
