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?

YES to FLOWER DELIVERIES! COMING SOON for FLOWER SUBSCRIPTIONS. Visit our Marketplace to place a order for flowers or to shop some of our fun Posies merchandise!

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.

Their first nose to nose meeting! Posies sure went to great lengths to check in on her sister, ha ha. Sheโ€™s all better now and we are right on track for our Friday @hydeparkvillage, noon to 3pm & Saturday @starkeymarket 9am to noon! (We may need to do a little time tweaking Saturday if the rain decides to mess with us, so keep a look out ๐Ÿ‘€ for any adjustments.) Daisy is also looking good and was happy for a short but sweet visit!

We have the best support by the best VW Whisperer in #tampabay - thank you!!

If you saw her taking this ride across #tampabay know she is ok, she just had a little temper tantrum and we will be back at it Friday & Saturday!

To the two men who jumped into action on Himes and pushed us to safety, OMGeee - thank you so much. We also want to give a shout out to #aaa - your driver was the bomb and took such good care of us. That membership is worth itโ€™s weight in gold. To our VW Whisperer, thank you for being on speed dial! We love you & what do you want for lunch tomorrow? ๐Ÿ˜‹ To @grizzliadams thank you for being the best work husband & coming to the rescue.

Miss Daisy is still enjoying her spa retreat with the VW Whisperer & he just told us she got a clean bill of health! (We can breath now!) The last step is to raise her to stock height (she was lowered) so she is back to her 1968 VW roots. This should all be done early next week!!! <โ€” ๐Ÿฅฐ

She is then off for a quick mani-pedi (such a diva) & then we wait on the arrival & installation of a new tarpaulin being custom made just for her (already spoiled!) She is so close to starting her next career in life with Miss P! (#sistersquad) We can hardly contain ourselves! Soon Daisy soon! (Sorry for using the same picture twice, she thinks this is her best side!)

Daisy met her sister from another mister while at the spa! Sheโ€™s a bit older than Daisy, so weโ€™re hoping sheโ€™s offering up some good advice! Like โ€œdonโ€™t ever give up, even if you feel sick, she needs you to run at all times!โ€ or maybe itโ€™s โ€œremember to always smile no matter what your carrying, remember it could be worse like the time you worked for that plumbing company back in 71, I mean come on itโ€™s flowers after all!โ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐ŸŒธ ๐Ÿ›ป ๐Ÿ›ป ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ
