Serendipity Florist, 6830 Two Notch Road: 2008   3 comments

Posted at 11:49 pm in stores

As I was taking one of the pictures for the Circuit City post, I found myself standing in front of a little store called Serendipity that I had never noticed before. I had no idea what it was, but looking in the windows (which works better in person than with my camera..) quickly established that it had been a florist shop and probably a rather interesting one. It just goes to show how even a medium sized place like Columbia has much more stuff than I can keep track of. Apparently a fair sized parcel goes with the shop, and it will be interesting to see what happens with the land.

UPDATE 21 May 2009: Looks like it's open again as a florist Forget-Me-Not:

  1. This is actually Forget-Me-Not Florist and Serendipity Gift Shop. This goes back at least to the early to mid-1960s when my parents were in the restaurant business (Walter's Drive In Restaurant) down the street across Two Notch from Columbia Mall.

    I knew the owner was retiring but not aware that the shop had actually closed. Lois and her daughter were wonderful folks. They did the flowers for my wedding and the birth of my son, as well as the funerals for both of my parents.

    This was one, if not the only full-service florist in what was then called Dentsville - - way before the construction of Columbia Mall and everything else. At that time, it was "the boonies."

  2. Thanks! That's very interesting. It's true you don't hear about "Dentsville" much anymore for some reason..

  3. Wonder if 'Lois and her daughter' were the people I knew that owned Forget-Me-Not in the 70's? I went to SVHS with Tinker, dont remember her last name.
