Brought together by their love of fresh flowers and their wish to further enrich the Northside neighborhood, owners Angela Barnett and Amber Neville have created Willow & Stock, an independent floral shop serving Iowa City and the surrounding area. Willow & Stock intends to serve the growing consumer desire for products created ethically and responsibly, while maintaining high standards of beauty, quality and customer care. By sourcing their flowers as close to home as possible, Willow & Stock aims to show that flowers can be unique, beautiful and local. They source from area farmers using what they have available as the seasons change. Supplemental stock is brought in from greenhouse growers operating only in the continental United States with preference for the Midwest. Additionally, they are committed to eliminating waste whenever possible — they use biodegradable butcher paper as wrap, compost floral scraps, and deliver by foot or bike whenever possible.
