ENTREPRENEUR SPOTLIGHT

Leanne Miller

Leanne Miller is the owner of a brand new flower shop in downtown Valparaiso, European-style Shadow Box Flower Market. When you walk into the shop, you’ll have access to their entire inventory! All the flowers are displayed in buckets, and you’ll have the opportunity to shop stems a la carte and curate your very own floral arrangement. Overall, Leanne wants her shop to change the way you think about flowers. Flowers are meant to be enjoyed every day and given as small tokens of appreciation AND a grandiose way to say I LOVE YOU!
