TRUMANN, Ark. (KARK) – When you think of buying something special for your loved one, you might think of chocolate or flowers, but a florist in Arkansas is offering a bouquet of toilet paper.
Blossom Events and Florist got the idea after stores started running out of toilet paper.
A dozen rolls will cost you $75, the same price they charge for a dozen roses.
“Same element, same base of it,” says David and Bart Faulkner, the owners of Blossom Events and Florist. “Same concept. It has greenery. It has water, it has a vase, it has ribbon. Lots of mechanics on the inside. It took a lot of labor. You just can’t make tissue paper look pretty. You just can’t.”
They’ve already sold a couple of the toilet paper bouquets.
In case you’re wondering, the owners did not go out and clear the shelves to make this a possibility.
They’re actually couponers, so they already had all of the toilet paper stocked away.
“It is going to affect our business one way or another, so we’re just trying to, right now, do like everybody and make the best of it,” Bart Faulkner said.
