About us

The Frugal Flower began as a humble roadside stand selling fresh flowers in the town of Sudbury, Massachusetts in 1988. Our major growth began when we developed a relationship importing fresh orchids from Bangkok later that year. The magnificent exotic orchids that highlight many of our arrangements bring a fresh, exotic flavor that always thrills our customers. We now import thousands of orchids every week along with fresh deliveries to ensure that the freshness and beauty of these flowers are preserved through delivery to your home.

 

The Owners

Two lifelong friends, Craig Wambolt and Mike Devlin founded The Frugal Flower, in 1988. Craig and Mike continue to be involved every day, with Craig overseeing all operations, and Mike keeping his watchful eye over all arrangements, ensuring that all of the flowers, plants and other offerings exceed our customers' expectations. They are supported by a staff of trained floral design artists, customer service representatives and delivery specialist with many lifetimes worth of experience between them. The Frugal Flower is a unique flower company. We have a passion for fresh flowers... and for making your occasions memorable.  For over 25 years, the owner-operators of Frugal Flower have been importing flowers daily – directly from partner farms around the world including South America, Europe, Africa and Asia – and delivering those farm-fresh flowers to florists all over the United States. And now, through Frugal Flower, we'll deliver them direct to you or your special someone... and guarantee your flowers will last.
