The Owner


Linda Brown

Linda Brown is a fully trained florist and is the owner of All Purpose Flowers. Linda’s dream was always to be a florist, and so she started her studies in 1998 at the age of 14, and majored in Floriculture at Essex Agricultural High School. Throughout high school, she competed in local, state, and national Floriculture contests. After graduating from high school, she continued her love of floriculture by working at flower shops and completing her business degree at Salem State College. A few years after she graduated college, she opened All Purpose Flowers out of her home in Gloucester, MA in 2010. Then In November 2018, Linda’s lifelong dream of opening her own shop right where she grew up in Magnolia came true. 

Linda is a passionate florist and loves creating beautiful flower arrangements for her customers. Her goal is to brighten every customer’s day with her flowers.  She is a wife and mother of two, a daughter who is 5 years old, and a son who is 2  years old. She enjoys being able to bring her children to work, and you may have the pleasure of meeting them if you stop into the shop.
