please tell me how someone can win this contest by such a margin.. and your story contains praise for a flower shop operated out of a home where it is not even a commercial district another home business who has not paid danville lisc.. as your headline said the best place to pick up flowers you can not even do it at the house you praise at least the winner is a legit business and by the way they had a nuice testimonial but you ignored that and gave several to the second place. you owe an apology to the winner, east bay. and the other legit florists where you can pick up flowers.

Thomas: This contest is won by voting for the winner. The winner was the Alamo Flower Company. Congrats to them! I then included comments about Bloom Artistry. I often highlight the business that go the most comments, which was Bloom Artistry.

terry never the less the legit winner had a very nice comment perhaps you should re read it.. lets be clear i have no connection to the winner however.i do know of their generosity. with many many charities that this shop contributes to..and i just thought as the winner instead if three comments for a second place finisher you could at least include the oine for the winner thats all

Thanks Thomas. I read it. It was very nice. But as I said, I like to include comments for the business that pulled in the most comments, which was Bloom Artistry. Since this isn't the end all be all to florists in town (or of any of the topics we list), I try to bring balance to the whole thing by highlighting not JUST the winner. Bloom Artistry had by far the most comments with eight. The Alamo Flower Company had one. So I used a few from Bloom. Alamo Flower Company still won the contest by a large margin. Also -- you can always go to the Alamo Flower Company listing and leave a review of your own. Again, thank you.
