Bikes in Bloom
by Edie Bennett (Pickers & Peddlers)
My daughter, Colleen and I took a road trip last summer to western New York where we spent 10 days wondering through and exploring many small towns and villages. During our first weekend there, we visited the Antique World Flea Market in the town of Clarence which is a huge event held on Sundays throughout the year. Because the flea market is so big, we decided to make a return trip the
following Sunday and then wonder through the town after. A wrong turn during our "wondering" put us on a street with display after display of beautiful bikes decorated in different themes with beautiful flowers. Each display had a plaque or small sign announcing the business name or family who lived there.

On that day, I didn't realize we had wondered upon "Bikes in Bloom" until I returned home to Florida and did a little research on the internet because I was so taken with the beauty of the displays. It was amazing to me that businesses and families joined together to transform a small town. Shortly after I started working on opening Pickers & Peddlers, I shared with Laura Lou Fitzpatrick about what I'd seen and that was all it took because she took off with the idea!


Thanks to Laura Lou presenting the idea to the Citrus County Chamber, we now have "Bikes in Bloom" in Crystal River. The event is small this year, but still very exciting for our community. Not only is it a community beautification, it also allows everyone to become familiar with our local businesses and at the same time enjoy seeing the talent that is so abundant in our small community. I'm amazed at the diversity of the displays in Heritage Village alone and how each one represents the theme of the shop.
