Business Name: Endless Roses Website: www.endlessroses.ca Established: 2020 Questions answered by: Johanna Reinberg
Can you please fully explain your business or product line?
Endless Roses are beautiful, 100% REAL preserved rose & flower arrangements that will last over THREE YEARS, absolutely maintenance-free (no sunshine or water required!) You can choose from one of our many handcrafted rose arrangements, or we can customize one with your favourite colours from our extensive colour selection.
Endless Roses make for perfect long-lasting, unique gifts and come in a variety of sizes to find the ideal one for you and your loved ones. These are preserved with a specific mixture of 100% plant-based and bio-degradable preservation formulas.
With the Winnipeg local maker community continuing to grow, what is the most important thing you’d like potential customers of your company to know?
Our Endless arrangements are unique and offer an original take on what used to be known as boxed roses. We also offer jewelry arrangements and unique potted arrangements.
What inspired you to start your business?
I have always adored roses, but was sad when they wouldn’t last longer than two weeks. After many years of searching for different formats of roses, such as metal, felt, or crystal, I stumbled onto this new technology and method that allows roses & other flowers to be preserved for many years.
What was the biggest struggle you’ve had to overcome?
Like many, we were hit by the COVID pandemic as we were opening our business, so for our first year, the business was online only and it was harder to make our presence known. Our products really do stand up best in person, unlike photographs online.
What has been your biggest success as a maker?
Being able to open our pop-up kiosk for the 2021 season and seeing all of our happy customers surprised by our products and arrangements.
Do you have any advice that you would pass on to someone hoping to start up their own business or product line?
Give yourself time to do it right. We all want to break in guns blazing, but a good business is a smart one.
All of our products take thought and time to make; we prefer quality over quantity and we put a piece of ourselves in everything we do. Therefore, think about how you want your business to represent you with thought and care.
Please share any upcoming events as well as the best place(s) for people to purchase your product!
We have a Mother’s Day sale at our kiosk in Outlet Collection Winnipeg; the kiosk itself closes up after May 15th. We are happy to announce we will also be available at the MB Night Market on June 6th.
