Local Business Collaborates with Student Entrepreneur

Every Bloomin' Thing Florist showcases a talented student with uplifting handmade works of art

Every Bloomin' Thing Florist has been generating much buzz in their Forked River Shop from their beautiful floral designs, extensively stocked retail space located on 9 Lacey Road, the seasonal character sightings in their parking lot and even the VW Bloomin' Bus that makes its way to farmer's markets and will have its Chowderfest debut this September 30. The owners Sylvia Cardillo, Gene and Heather Kinder also look for ways to raise accessibility to artists and emerging entrepreneurs by giving space to showcase works to those who are patronizing their business.

Ms. Anna Maria Rossi has proven her creations complement the offerings of their shop. The 8th Grade student of Southern Regional Middle School has begun pursing her dream of creating art and running a business.  Since the collaboration began this past summer, her most popular product are her hand painted shells, as well as her paintings. Both are created with cream acrylic paints with a focus on basic color combinations. Anna Maria, 13, shares that every piece of artwork is made with love and means to bring only happiness to those who see them. As Every Bloomin' Thing is preparing for custom and handmade items this fall and holiday season, so is Anna Maria. There will be her specialty seasonal creations available through Every Bloomin' Thing along with their VM Bloomin' Bus outfitted for holiday photos or insta worthy moments at Chowderfest happening in Beach Haven.
