Farrant’s Flower Shop and Greenhouses

Established by Tom Farrant in 1869, Farrant’s Greenhouses, Inc. has the distinction of being the oldest business in the Newport area. In 1927 Harold and Elsie Jenks purchased the greenhouses, providing a seasonal fare from annual garden plants and vegetables to indoor houseplants and fresh-cut flowers and arrangements. In 1966 Jim and Betty (Jenks) McQuillen and Peter and Lois Jenks added a flower shop in the center of Main Street, where Jim and Betty still have the shop at its original location more than 45 years later, managed by their daughter Kathy who has been there just shy of 40 years.

Ironically, Tom Farrant’s daughter Susan had operated a flower stand in this same location about 100 years ago! The Main Street shop will be operating as long as possible until the renovations of Main St. begin sometime this year…. Farrant’s will continue to operate their Farrants Pictureflower shop and greenhouse at their Farrant Street location (overlooking beautiful Lake Memphremagog from Farrants Point), where they will continue to welcome customers with a personal touch, whether for a special family celebration such as a wedding or a more somber occasion as the loss of a loved one. They are there for your most intimate floral needs. Major credit cards are accepted. Jim, Betty, and Kathy McQuillen are grateful for the loyal patronage of their many customers and say, “We wish to thank you for being part of our memorable history!”

Suzie-Lynn’s Gifts and 1/2 Off Cards are entering their second year of business with owners, Lisa and Alan Desroches. Over this past year, Suzie-Lynn’s has grown and now has three locations: Newport, Morrisville, and the newly opened one in St. Johnsbury at the Green Mountain Mall. While all the stores carry designer greeting cards, gift wrap and bows at 50% off every day, each store carries something a little different at each of their locations, to make all of them unique.

Suzie-Lynn’s has one of the largest selections of Yankee Candles in the area, and has brought in many of the new scents of the year, along with new accessories. They also carry DiVinci beads as well as a couple of other lines of jewelry, such as Lamar, which is another line that is 50% off every day and has an unconditional lifetime warranty. They also carry Silver Forest jewelry, which is made in Vermont.

Ms. Desroches is always looking for items made in the United States as well as locally. Currently she is selling scarves, baby quilts, fudge, and baby items to name a few. They are in the process of expanding their party goods line, and wedding and anniversary favors, as well as gifts.

“We are always looking for something new and exciting as well as deals to pass on to our customers. We try to have something for everyone, no matter the occasion or budget,” states Ms. Desroches. “We are a family-run business and try to treat our customers as friends and family.”
