‘A Flower Basket’ shares birthday with Lucy, the shop cat


“A Flower Basket” in Bellefonte will be holding its one-year anniversary celebration next week. Owner Susan Mullen opened the business on Sept. 1, 2017. That date is also her shop cat’s first birthday. The cat, Lucy, is a very noticeable part of the store at 633 E. Howard St., Bellefonte. The celebration begins Tuesday and includes sales, refreshments, drawings for merchandise and a donation collection for area animal shelters. Suggestions are food, toys, cleaning supplies and monetary gifts. Above, Lucy often can be found near the register, helping customers make final selections and keeping them company while they pay for purchases.
