In Kernersville, conveniently located just off I-40 on Union Cross Road, there is a pocket of everlasting spring. It is called Younique Expressions, and it is a place where creativity, thoughtfulness, and flowers combine to recreate a time when the gift of a flower could express so many things. Younique Expressions is reality, fashioned from a dream, and filled with beauty.
The inspiration behind this sanctuary is the owner Kathy Brown. Kathy’s aim in maintaining her store is to please and provide quality and quantity for each customer. She has countless freshly cut bouquets waiting in her shop, but her store is a place for individual creation as well. Kathy and her staff are always eager to design personalized arrangements. They will take into account the customer’s budget and flower preference and create a personal, affordable, and unique bouquet for any occasion.
Not only are Kathy’s flowers beautiful and tastefully arranged, but they also have a reputation for lasting. Kathy reveals her secret for long-living arrangements as based on the decision to order in small quantities throughout the week. This method ensures that the flowers have not been sitting in her store for long before purchase.
Another function of Younique Expressions is its gift baskets. They offer corporate and personal gift baskets, customized or “ready to go.” Gift baskets in all different shapes and sizes filled with all sorts of goodies. Kathy is dedicated to supporting local business by stocking products made in the Piedmont Triad Area. These products include Mrs. Jenny’s Pickles, Salem Baking Moravian Cookies and Cheese Straws, Chapel Hill Toffee, Black Dog Gourmet Sauces and Rubs, Carolina Coffee and Red Bird brand candies. They also stock snack mixes and treats from Nancy’s Candy Company in neighboring Meadows of Dan, Virginia. Other gourmet items include rum cake, crackers, dips, truffles, sausages, cheese spreads and much more. Customers can call or visit Younique Expressions to pick and choose the content, then design the gift; all with the expert assistance of Kathy or one of her skilled staff.
These any-occasion gourmet baskets are a great gift. Businesses often purchase the baskets for their customers as “thank-you” or “welcome” gifts. Co-workers, relatives, and friends get the baskets and gorgeous bouquets for baby showers, hospital visits, weddings, birthdays, and any other celebration imaginable, including “just because” gifts. When the gift is received it is always evident that the giver did not simply pluck an item off the shelf; the baskets are personal and considerate, as well as being delicious.
Kathy Brown delivers her custom arrangements and gift baskets from Younique Expressions to Kernersville, Greensboro, Oak Ridge, Colfax Winston-Salem, Jamestown, Summerfield, and Walkertown. Younique Expressions also is a member of FTD and Teleflora, and offers Worldwide Delivery through this network. It is one of Kathy’s greatest pleasures to see the look on the fortunate individual’s face as they receive their gift. “There isn’t a person who doesn’t love to receive our baskets and flowers,” she says beaming with pride.
Kathy Brown’s store is quickly expanding, with new merchandise, flowers, and creative elements available each day. She would be honored to receive a visit or phone call (336 310-4745) to Younique Expressions and is ready and able to aid you in the creative process of designing an original gift. She has also provided a lovely, easy-to-use website (yeflorist.com) for customers to view and purchase her bouquets and baskets when it is convenient for them. The next time a special occasion arrives, remember this pocket of springtime in Kernersville and visit Kathy and her staff to create a gift that will make your Special Someone’s day.
