Sole proprietor of Coriander Girl opened in September 2009
With a passion for flowers Alison decided to leave her acting career behind to open her very own flower/antique shop in the heart of Parkdale.With no formal floral education behind her, she mastered her technique by slaving away nights until she mastered the trade inside and out. Alison has recently been asked on CTV’s The Marilyn Denis show to share her floral skills with fun DIY projects and how to segments.
A.K.A Paul Westlake
Coriander Contractor, Coriander garbage man, Coriander caterer, and most recently Coriander wedding setup guy
When Alison approached her dad with a business plan and a picture of the shop she had just rented, first they hugged, maybe cried a little bit (she has her dads sensitivity) and then got down to planning the little shops overhaul. Coriander contractor strapped on his tool belt and away they went. With the tiniest budget but gigantic vision the little shop quickly became the little charmer. The Coriander Dad helped bring Alison’s vision to life and when the doors opened on September 2nd 2009, they cried again!
Paul Westlake is C Diddy’s real name but he goes by so many pseudonyms because he does so many things. Coriander Wedding set up has recently been added to his arsenal and we couldn’t be more excited! Coriander Dad has officially blown us all away.
