Two passions merge at Stems N Splinters

GRAFTON—A new business has been planted and is already flourishing in Grafton, and this is not your typical flower shop.

Taylor County native Dawn Larew has opened the doors to her hometown shop, Stems N Splinters, located at 203 Lincoln St., Grafton.

Grafton’s newest small business held a soft opening Saturday of last week, welcoming individuals to come check out what the shop has to offer.

Larew shared that because she had a deep passion for flowers and woodworking, she wanted to bring a small business to her hometown that would allow residents another option when ordering arrangements and custom gifts.

In fact, she took her crafting to the extreme, constructing her shop from items found right in her own backyard, including refurbished wood, glass doors and other items.

This one-of-a-kind shop offers live flowers, bouquets, cemetery saddles, silk arrangements and custom gifts including wreaths, signs, lanterns and handmade home decor.

Larew shared that while Stems N Splinters will focus more on funeral and memorial arrangements, as well as flowers and gifts for other special occasions, the shop will also offer additional services for those looking for a unique, personalized gift, arrangement or memorial.

She mentioned that custom orders are her favorite to do saying, “Everything is unique, making each order different from the next.”

Whether it be wreaths or a wooden signs, each order is made special to the customers thoughts and designs.

To help celebrate the opening of Stems N Splinters, Larew shared that the business is having a drawing for a pumpkin bouquet.

“Make sure to stop in and enter in the drawing before Tuesday, for your to win, and come check out Grafton’s newest business,” she expressed. “While there, take advantage of our 5 percent discount when you make a purchase. We look forward to seeing you!”
