Title: "Judy Garland Flowers Inc" flower shop
Post by Admin Saovaluck on 5th Oct, 2012 at 1:36pm




In 1939, Judy Garland opened a flower shop called "Judy Garland Flowers Inc." at 5421 Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles.

Few people knew this, but this was around the time she was filming "The Wizard of Oz", as if she wasn't busy enough already with her acting commitments.

After her super-busy schedule at MGM studios, business woman Judy Garland would spend a couple of hours each evening at her flower shop arranging flowers and filling orders, where she and her mother ran the business.

Her mother thought it would be a good idea to invest her money in something outside of showbiz. Profits, if any, from the business venture went into a special trust fund for Judy Garland that she cannot touch until she reached the age of 18.

Wow...Dorothy invested in her own business as well.  Does not say much on how the success of this business...

Will Dorothy's business be successful again? ::)

Flower shops can be a successful business. People always need flowers for special occasions.

Very true.  Demands for flowers will always there. 

Figure out people's problems and then come up with solutions to solve those problems and that is how a business is created.
