The Botanical Atelier store in Falmouth will close this month

A BOTANICAL art shop in Falmouth is due to close at the end of this month.

Botanical Atelier, which is located on Arwenack Street in Falmouth, announced its impending closure on its social media page this week, describing the decision as “really difficult”.

In the announcement posted on her Facebook page, Botanical Atelier owner Sarah Humphrey said: “Unfortunately the time has come to make a really difficult decision to close the doors of our Falmouth store at the end of this month. .

“Many aspects of Botanical Atelier surprised and delighted me with unexpected results.

“I’ve met amazing people, launched countless events and products, and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunities that have arisen from the serendipitous luck I’ve had people walking into my shop on any given day – what I never realized could have ever been an opportunity to own retail space in Cornwall.

“I have shared endless stories on inspiring networks and a portfolio that is now full of orders that resulted from days, weeks, months and years spent behind a counter that overlooks the sea.

“I learned a lot.

“However, it now seems like a natural progression to reinvigorate the studio and workshops where it all started.

“Finally, it is important for me to add that this is certainly not a ‘goodbye’, but rather a ‘hello’ to new projects.

“Which I really hope you enjoy as much if not more than before.

“Thank you all for your support and amazing custom – I couldn’t have gotten this far without you, and I really hope you enjoy the next part of the Botanical Atelier journey.”
