This week Lisa and I headed to Savannah for an Independent Funeral Home Directors conference. We arrived with great expectations, excited to tell the story of Fleurenasci. Our goal was to form new partnerships and guess what? We added 11 new funeral homes as partners with product displays and finalized one we had begun prior to the conference. That makes 12 new partners this week!
So it is with great pride that I reveal our new partners!
West Cobb Funeral Home is the local partner we had met with before the conference. Owner, David Roach, loved what he saw and brought the signed contract to us in Savannah! What a great way to kick off the next couple of days.
And now the list of new partners from the show:
- Beggs Funeral Home in Lincolnton, GA
- Ginn Funeral Home in Carnesville, GA
- Henderson and Sons Funeral Home in Rome, GA (North Chapel & South Chapel)
- Music Funeral Services (Valdosta, GA & Lakeland, GA)
- Shepard Funeral Home in Folkston, GA
- Stanley Funeral Home (Dublin, GA & Wrightsville, GA)
- Taylor Funeral Home (Louisville, GA & Gibson, GA)
As I type this list I am humbled and truly feel blessed beyond words. Thank you all for your support. I’d also like to extend a big welcome to our new partners! We are excited to be partnering with each of you. It would appear that everything is blooming here at Fleurenasci.
As I write this blog, I can hardly believe what has happened over the last four weeks. First, I added two new staff members and in the last seven days I have added two new awesome partners.
I am proud to announce that our products are now available at Castellaw Funeral Home in Smyrna, GA and The Regal Beagle in Dallas, GA. Castellaw has been a part of the Smyrna community since 1966. The funeral home was owned and run by Mr. B.C. Castellaw until he retired in 1997. His daughter, Gale Castellaw Baker, who has been affiliated with the funeral home since 1968, now serves as President. As soon as Castellaw saw the product we could offer families to remember their loved ones they were ready to partner with us. We are as excited about this partnership as they are and look forward to helping those who have lost a loved one remember them with a unique Fleurenasci piece.
You might now be thinking, isn’t The Regal Beagle a pet grooming and boarding business? Yes, it is and they love us too. They will now be carrying our jewelry including our adorable animal charms. Have you seen the puppy charm? And should someone have a special flower that reminds them of a special pet, we can take that flower and turn it into a treasured piece as well.
Again, I say thank you to everyone who takes the time to tell others about us. Your referrals are making a difference. As I write this we are busily completing yet another contract with another new partner. I look forward to sharing that with you in just a few days! Blessed and grateful are understatement of how I feel. Thanks again to all!
I love reading news on the internet, especially when I find a mention about Fleurenasci. Well imagine my surprise when I found a mention about us in a blog from a Kentucky blogger! Yes! Apparently he and his wife had been visiting the beautiful and historic Marietta Square and happened upon my jewelry at the Art Walk. Here is the author’s quote:
“My wife really liked Fleurenasci. They use flowers to make beads. Their stuff looked great, and it was very unique.”
Thanks Jim! I love when new people learn about our concept. To read his entre blog click here.
