Baisch & Skinner's story begins in 1952...
It was then, after years of working for other wholesale florists on the St. Louis Flower Market, that Art Baisch and Roy Skinner decided to form a new wholesale florist of their own.
In the beginning, the company mainly consigned fresh flowers for local growers. Early on, Art and Roy gained a reputation for offering the finest quality flowers available. That reputation remains today.
Located on the historic St. Louis Flower Market the company started out as a single, 3,700 ft storefront with a small cooler and a handful of employees.
Still in its original location, the company has grown from that 3,700 sq. ft. single storefront to a 160,000 sq. ft complex of buildings on the Flower Market. It includes modern greenhouses, enormous cut flower coolers and beautiful showrooms for its selection of permanent botanical flowers, decorative and home décor accessories.
Now in its third generation, Baisch & Skinner is the only family owned and operated floral distributor on the St. Louis Flower Market.
Baisch & Skinner maintains proud membership with many of the industries most trusted associations, including:
