If you see a bright pur­ple wild­flower on the side of a yel­low truck roam­ing the streets of Fri­day Har­bor, it’s prob­a­bly the new flower busi­ness in town. Erin & Robert Shack­elford have start­ed Camas Designs, a flo­ral design and art­work com­pa­ny based in Fri­day Harbor.

Erin has been arrang­ing flow­ers for years while work­ing her “cor­po­rate” job simul­ta­ne­ous­ly. Ear­li­er this year, Erin decid­ed life was too short not to fol­low her pas­sion and is now bring­ing joy via flow­ers to those around her.

Camas Designs pro­vides flow­ers for wed­dings, spe­cial events and offers twice-month­ly flower sub­scrip­tions for those want­i­ng flow­ers in their home or busi­ness. Robert does the web design and pho­tog­ra­phy for Camas and cre­ates art­work on a cus­tom made CNC machine to go with the Camas flo­rals. (Robert’s land­scape and macro pho­tog­ra­phy can be seen at robertshackelford.com.)

Camas is com­mit­ted to using Amer­i­can grown flow­ers and they source their flow­ers from San Juan Island farms and a North­west flower farmer co-op. Camas is cre­at­ing a lim­it­ed num­ber of cen­ter­pieces for Mother’s Day. To order flow­ers for Mother’s Day, email Camas at erin [@] camasdesigns.com or call 206–437-4993. To guar­an­tee avail­abil­i­ty, place your order by May 3rd.

The mot­to of Camas Designs is “local­ly sourced hap­pi­ness” which high­lights their mis­sion to bring island beau­ty into your home, wed­ding, event, or work­place. To learn more about Camas Designs, vis­it their web­site at www.camasdesigns.com.
