History of Stetson Flowers
The name Stetson Flowers raises an obvious question given our proximity to Stetson University… No, the famous John B. Stetson of hat fame didn't start this business in the city's early days.
The name however is a loaner from the university, who has graciously allowed the business to thrive in the area, and the use of the name has survived a challenge on trademark infringement grounds from the hat company.
Thyra West, who came to the states from Denmark with her husband, Thorvald, opened the West Flower Shop in Palatka. They moved West Flower Shop to downtown DeLand in 1932 because of its larger population and healthier business climate, according to Evelyn West, granddaughter of Thyra.
The shop fared well on downtown's south side in the SouthTrust Bank building on South Woodland Boulevard, and it did well in a house near where Chuck's Amoco station used to be on North Woodland Boulevard.
The West family's strong support of Stetson University earned the flower shop a special honor in 1934. Charles Farriss, then acting president of Stetson, suggested that Thyra West change the shop's name to Stetson Flower and Gifts. Evelyn West had graduated from Stetson with a degree in business administration in 1947 and began working in the shop. She bought the shop from the family in 1951.
The shop operated in several locations downtown, including several years at 106 E. New York Ave., and it eventually moved to a location at 129 N. Woodland Blvd.
Sandra Presley, Evelyn West's daughter, bought the shop in 1994 and remained its owner until 2015. Sandra continued the West’s family tradition of operating the shop until she was ready to retire to spend more time with her horses and horse farm. Jennifer Strickland, a DeLand native and daughter of a local floral farmer in the Volusia County area purchased the flower business and continues to operate it.
In Evelyn’s years, the store survived a challenge by the Stetson Co. (not the university) on the use of the name Stetson and on the shop's trademark. The Stetson Co. no longer makes famous hats but licenses the brand name to a hat manufacturer. The company also licenses the use of the Stetson name to manufacturers of other products, such as perfume, Stetson University spokeswoman Betty Brady said.
The Stetson Co. had challenged the flower shop's use of the name but attorneys for the West family successfully assured and demonstrated to the company that the flower shop had used the name with the permission of the university for more than 60 years.
Evelyn said it best, ''So many of our family members have graduated from Stetson. The university has meant so much to us and to this town.''
Nature’s Home Decor, founded in 2014 by Jennifer Strickland, acquired the flower side of Stetson Flower and Wedding Boutique and combined it with her existing florist operations, now located at 850 N Woodland Blvd, DeLand, FL 32720. The Stetson Flowers phone number and web address have remained the same – 386-734-0796 and stetsonflowershop.com. Several Stetson employees transferred from Sandra’s operation to Jennifer’s operation during the acquisition.
There’s a lot of deep-rooted recognition with Stetson Flower because of the longtime history. Stetson Flowers continues to operate with the same focus on consistent quality.
