Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

04. Do you rent posies?

Yes! We love private events from grand openings, weddings, photo shoots, showers, birthdays, charitable fundraisers and more! We offer a variety of customizable options that will wow your guests like only Posies can do! Just contact us about your big day and we will be happy to send you our event guideline and schedule a free consultation!

05. How do we become a pop-up?

We love popping up all over Tampa Bay, partnering with businesses of all sizes! To get started just email us info@posiesflowertruck.com or complete our Book the Truck form and tell us a little bit about your business. We will get back with you as soon as we can!

06. Do you offer delivery and subscription services?

COMING SOON! Please keep checking back and watching our Social Media for updates as we are close to bringing our delivery and merchandise store online. We are currently taking requests via email only on a case by case basis, so please reach out to us at info@posiesflowertruck.com and we will do our best to fulfill your order.

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.

Yep, Santa knows how to drive an old school 4-speed with no power steering, we offered him a fulltime job but he declined, said the sled is much easier to drive with no traffic issues! (Ha ha)

We are busy preparing for the holidays & will have LIVE WREATHS & GARLAND on the truck with some fun baubles & bows! More on this to follow! 

Don't forget we have physical gift cards on the truck as well as virtual gift cards you can purchase from our website.

Thank you to all who continue to embrace and support the cutest little flower truck of happiness! We want to share some exciting news in honor of Posies Day! 

1. We are going to turn the store back on which will include bouquet deliveries, merchandise & soon to follow Posies subscriptions. We have been working to utilize local companies everywhere we can & have a new partnership with @locotampabay to be our single source for delivery! They are locally owned & help restaurants & small businesses like Posies cut down costs! Be sure to try them out (first food delivery is free) instead of using the big guys who take a giant chunk from the businesses.

2. We did a soft launch of our new website www.posiesflowertruck.com & also created a quick way to find Posies, www.findposies.com.

3. We designed & worked with the most incredible Safety Harbor seamstress to make our new โ€œPosies Pocketsโ€ reusable bags! We are showing them off today @starkeymarket from 11am to 2pm. They are currently in denim with the cutest linings, one will be for carrying long stems and the other will be used for small bouquets and gifts! Wait til you see them!! The small one is our favorite and will be a game changer for deliveries! Did we do enough teasing here? We donโ€™t want to unveil them before our celebration! 

4. A young USF student approached us to sell her environmentally friendly totes and we snatched them right up! They have been selling like hot cakes and we will continue to have them on the truck and store! We love supporting young local entrepreneurs! 

5. We want to support you too! Todayโ€™s celebration will include a percentage of Posies sales back to Starkey Market to donate to their charities.

Thank you for everything and we hope we get to say hi to you today! (Free cookies & ice cream while supplies last & the unveiling of our new Posies Pockets!)
