01. What's Posies History?
Posies is a classic 1968 air-cooled VW Single Cab truck that was manufactured in Germany. From what we know she spent some time in Alabama, as she had verbiage on her doors pre-restoration that said "Open Bible Mission" out of Florala, AL. (We are still working this end of things!) She also had roots to St. Petersburg prior to being sold to a gentleman named Mick from SC in 2012. He sold her in 2015, then she sold to another person (unknown), then sold again to Chad from NC where he did a full restoration. He sold her in 2017 to the original founder of Posies Flower Truck, Stephanie Newton, who retrofitted and converted her into the flower truck we know and love today. On November 7, 2017 Posies Flower Truck hit the streets of Tampa Bay once again now as a flower truck. In May of 2021 Stephanie and David Frank bought the business from Newton. Of course there is a large gap of years unaccounted for from 1968 to 2012 but we are continuing to research as much of her history we can. If only she could talk!
02. Do you Actually drive Posies?
We sure do! She is very old fashioned, no power steering, no air conditioning, no power windows and she's an old school 4 speed! To say driving her is a workout is an understatement. Her engine is a 2100cc which gives her a little more get up and go, however, when you see her on the road give her some space, she is a hard working girl without all the modern day safety features of cars today! So safety is always top priority when driving her.
03. How far Do you travel?
Posies currently services Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas and on a case-by-case basis Manatee/Sarasota counties. Other locations would require a customized proposal. Because Posies Flower Truck is a classic car with no air conditioning or modern safety features, we prefer not to drive longer than 1-2 hours from our home base located in Oldsmar, Florida.

07. Do you provide wedding arrangements and bouquets?
We are currently not offering wedding arrangements, bulk flowers or bridal bouquets or boutonnieres. We do however offer the truck to be available and filled with beautiful blooms for your special day as an interactive experience and take-a-way gift for your guests. We decided the truck itself would be our primary focus of attention. We may offer this service in the near future.
