Alex Miller takes her Valley and Rose Flower Truck to several locations around Seattle, but she’s busiest when parked outside Evviva Pizza.

“This has been my best spot here in Queen Anne,” said the Magnolia resident between sales on Saturday, Sept. 29.

Miller recently left her marketing job in Lower Queen Anne to focus on her mobile flower shop full time.

“I always loved flowers, and I’m from Ontario,” she said, “and when I moved to Seattle, I was just blown away by the flowers.”

She said she saw a similar flower truck in Nashville, and decided she wanted to bring the concept to Seattle before someone else did.

Miller found a 1959 Volkswagen pickup in Los Osos, California, and hired a delivery service to bring it to Seattle.

When it was clear it couldn’t be delivered in time for Mother’s Day, she enlisted the help of her father in Ontario and her fiancé, who was in LA for business. They met up in California and drove the pickup to Seattle on a trailer, making it in time for Mother’s Day — the busiest day of sales since she started.

Miller picks up her flowers at the Seattle Wholesale Growers Market, and customers build their own bouquets out of the back of her green truck, Jade. The price of a bouquet is by the stem.

“It was a side hustle to start,” she said, working weekends during the summer while still holding down her marketing job.

Miller decided to quit her job and focus on her Valley and Rose Flower Truck in August. She said she has the option of coming back to her old job under a contract this winter, should sales slow down or if stock runs out.

She wants to be open for Valentine’s Day, and is planning on making floral head wreaths for the Day of the Dead on Nov. 1.

“Once the rain comes, I will probably have to slow down a bit,” she said.

Miller said she’s looking for a parking lot where she can set up in Magnolia.

“I’ve had some people on Instagram, like, ‘You need to come down to Magnolia,’” Miller said. “I just need to find a spot.”
