After being in business for 16 years in Payson, Debbee McDonald relocated Finishing Touch Flowers and Gifts to East Verde Estates.
On Nov. 3, McDonald celebrated the re-opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house.
“There are a lot of talented people living in East Verde and I invited people who have their business here and are artists to participate,” McDonald said.
Attendees included Maggie Evans of the East Verde River Rockhouse Bed and Breakfast, artists Angela Cockle, Peggy Gould, potter John Gould, author Marguerite Young, seamstress Sue Hinton and Polly Weaver with Gold Canyon Candles.
Other participants who live outside East Verde Estates included harpist Laurie Galster and Lyrena Funsrud.
