Victoria born Alexandra Powell and Nicole Ingram are the brains, beauty and owners of Thorn and Thistle Flowers.
Alexandra grew up learning ikebana and gardening from her mother, and Nicole spent her childhood summers working alongside her grandmother at her flower farm. From an early age both girls formed an appreciation and love for flowers.
It wasn't until 2013 that both dreams of owning their own shop and working with flowers came true.
In 2017 they moved shop for the third time...and have settled into their new home at 713 St.Patrick Street in South Oak Bay. The new shop offers a much larger space where they've curated a unique selection of gifts, books, plants and florals.
The new shop also has an incorporated coffee shop where they serve Pallet coffee from Vancouver and Sloane Tea.
Come say hi! and grab a coffee and some flowers.
