• Mugs and More Mugs

    Yep. We are dog obsessed and that’s a good thing. We have so many cute ‘dog mugs’ at Wister’s but this one is one of our favorite. It’s over-sized and so fun. It’s the perfect mug for your morning coffee, hot chocolate, hot tea, hot apple cider, or just about anything you can sip while cuddling with your dog. But we also can’t help but LOVE these over-sized message mugs to brighten your morning, afternoon or evening. ‘Oh happy day’ for sure!

  • Christmas at Wister’s

Since we opened on January 24, I’ve been planning for Christmas at the shop and knew I wanted it to basically look like the North Pole and Candyland got married. I’m so excited to say it’s definitely going to look that way! So my question for you is…when is too early to put up the tree?? Asking for a friend

  • Business is not “As Usual”

    COVID-19 has made us all rethink how we live and how we work. It’s a new way of thinking for all of us. And business is not “as usual” – it’s very unusual! At Wisters, we do everything we can to keep our shop safe and sanitized. We offer hands-free pickup for florals and gifts during designated hours and have temporarily suspended in-store shopping – but we do offer a fun virtual shopping experience. In the past few weeks, it has been impossible to obtain fresh flowers from our flower vendors since flower farmers are short on help to harvest them. Shipping has also been problematic. That means filling orders…
