Bruce Mueller, Owner of A Vintage Bloom
Bruce Mueller is the owner of A Vintage Bloom, located at 5356 W. Devon Avenue. Having worked in the floral industry for over 27 years in both wholesale and retail, he brings a wealth of experience and creativity to his business in Edgebrook. That creativity and attention to detail are hallmarks of the business and are what have made A Vintage Bloom a successful business. This can be something as simple as taking the time to perfectly wrap a single rose, or planning an entire wedding around a fabric sample. The shop can handle events of any size, whether it is a single centerpiece for a house party, or a wedding for 500 guests.
A Vintage Bloom opened in March of 2009. Bruce discovered Edgebrook years ago while visiting a friend who then lived in North Edgebrook. He says “I always liked the feel of the neighborhood, so when I decided to take the plunge and open my own shop, Edgebrook was the logical choice. It has the small town charm while still being part of this vibrant and diverse city of Chicago. When the shop opened, I felt that we were welcomed with open arms by the residents of Edgebrook, and I look forward to being a part of downtown Edgebrook for many years to come.”
