New Owners at Burgevin's
Uptown Kingston is a little less gloomy since new owners from Fleishmann's (if I and my husband remember right, their names are Al and Lydia) took over Burgevin's Florist. They bring a touch of the much-missed Well Seasoned Nest to the digs, with some home-furnishing type stuff and a less kitschy aesthetic. They also bring cats with them: Smokey, Cali, and Midnight. Having cats in store windows goes a long way to making a shopping district look lived-in. Uptown Kingston could use more store pets. At any rate, you are safe ordering your next bouquet from these folks, you'll get more than carnations and baby's breath.
