Shane Walker and Bill Fulmer opened Flower Reign by Shane Walker, their new flower and gift shop on Cedar Springs Road that was more than a year in the making.
The store is much more than flowers. Hats, jewelry, sunglasses, cards, candles and books are among the other gift items available in the store.
“Anyone can come here and find something — gift, accessories,” Walker said.
The couple plans plenty of parties and other events. As they explained, the cashier counter turns into a fabulous bar.
One wall is filled with art and every two months they plan to bring in a new artist and host a reception.
They hoped to open by Valentine’s Day, but zoning, asbestos, plumbing and electrical problems delayed construction. The corner space had never been zoned retail. No one at the city cared decades ago when Nuvo opened on what was still thought of as a derelict street. Seems the city cares now. Problems with the building resulted in all new electrical, plumbing, walls ceiling and fixtures.
There’s plenty to see. Walker loves hats and has a number of interesting one displayed, including one signed by Michael Jackson.
The result is a fabulously photogenic new addition to the Strip.
