The Holiday Gift that Keeps on Giving!

Need a gift for a business contact?  Looking for a simple way to thank someone who's helped you out this year?  Or a small gift for  your cousin in Mt. Lebanon or the aunt in Greentree that you won't be able to see this holiday season?  Lubin and Smalley has your answer!

Flower arrangements, and potted plants are a great way to send the compliments of the season.  And as we head into winter, a potted plant is the gift that keeps on giving through out those cold months.  Lubin and Smalley also handles fruit baskets, balloons, specialty arrangements, and have an assortment of gift cards.  They personally deliver almost anywhere in Allegheny County and their network of fellow florists can deliver next-day anywhere in the US.  Simplify your holidays with Lubin and Smalley.

You can shop online or stop into the store and place orders by phone, fax, or email.  And by ordering through a local florist as opposed to a national floral delivery service, you could save up to $15 in surcharges!

Lubin and Smalley Flowers has been a part of Market Square since 1917. The original storefront was at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Graeme, in the space that is now Heinz Healy's mens clothing store. Here is an old postcard of that first location.

The building they are in now has been used by the company since the '40s for storage, design space, etc. but in 1993 the company moved all its Downtown activities under one roof. If you've never stopped to look up at their building in Market Square, take a moment and do it - you don't know what you've been missing!

In the postcard above, just under the name that wraps the windows in black and white, you can see a yellow shade that runs the full length of the windows. It looks like it has a pattern of rectangles.
In fact, it is not one shade, but individual pieces of etched class that were then painted gold and hung.  You can see both the postcard and the glass panel hanging inside the current Lubin and Smalley location.  Its also nice to just go in and get a whiff of all that sweet oxygen a roomfull of plants provides - its invigorating!
