A bunch of happiness

Sometimes, just by chance, you come across a place that you didn’t even know existed. The Blumenkörbchen just around the corner of our office on Käthe-Niederkirchner-Straße is one of those places. A bout six months ago we walked in here in need of a bouquet for one our team member’s birthday. We were looking for something special, something that said „hand-picked from the meadow“ and not so much „got this at the gas station“… The Blumenkörbchen is a wonderful little shop bursting with fresh, colourful and lovely scented flowers. And if it weren’t for Kathrin Necker we’d be completely overwhelmed by the rosy abundance of choice. In a virtuoso manner she picks flower after flower from all sorts of different vases, buckets and tubs and rustles up a stunning bouquet in a matter of minutes. We are impressed. And slightly nervous. We start checking our pockets for extra money… All we have is 15 bucks – we were NOT expecting such opulence. We then look at the receipt which reads 12,50 euro. Okay, now we’re confused. And still are two weeks later. The beautiful bunch of flowers is still going strong and absolutely gorgeous. We haven’t figured out yet how Kathrin manages to offer such high quality, perfect expertise and craftsmanship for practically next to nothing. But we’ve been buying our flowers here ever since – no matter the occasion. We keep telling her to raise her prices, but all she says in return:  „Next time, I promise.“ Luckily, some things never change…
