'Very Expensive' Flordel Florist is leaving 3rd Street for new LES home

Flordel Florist is leaving its small retail space at 226 E. Third St. between Avenue B and Avenue C for a new, larger storefront at 78 Clinton St. ... yesterday marked the last day here... (thanks to Stacie Joy for the photos!) ...
According to an Instagram post from the florist, the new space between Rivington and Delancey is three times larger than its current outpost. The grand opening is expected early in January.

In May, ownership changed the signage out front from "Florist Flowers" to the tongue-in-cheek "Very Expensive Flowers." 


The temp signage up now on Clinton Street...

Back when the M9 was the Avenue B Bus, its route took it on Clinton Street. On the East side of the street in the block south of Houston, there was a florist with a sign that said “Steamer Baskets” (presumably for your Atlantic crossing). So this will not be the first nice florist on Clinton Street! (Anyone else remember this?)
