The Outhouse Florist
60 Derbyshire Road South, Sale M33 3JQ (pick-ups only)
While many of us used the 2020 lockdown as an opportunity to binge-watch the US Office on Netflix, more entrepreneurial minds were adapting their careers and building new businesses. Grace Erritsos, owner of The Outhouse Florist, was one such mind. So named because Grace works from a studio in her grandparents’ back garden, The Outhouse Florist has gone from strength to strength since starting in Sale just 18 months ago.
With over a decade of floristry experience, Grace started out in her mum’s shop during college and soon realised, in her own words, that “flowers are [her] thing”.
The Outhouse Florist can make you something beautiful and bespoke, or you can select from the fresh florist’s choice options online. If dried flowers hold a special place in your heart, pick from a selection of options including wreaths, archways and amazing cake toppers for those who fancy something a little extra.
