Meet the Gang
Ever wonder who makes the “Taylor’s magic”? We decided to introduce the members of the gang.
Meet boss lady, Sherrie Taylor. Sherrie is the founder and owner of Taylor’s Florist and Gifts. She graduated from Kendall College of Art and Design, and the Chicago Institute of Floral Design. She founded Taylor’s in 1977. Sherrie loves spending time with her husband, Mike, her stepdaughter, son-in-law and grandsons. She’s a big gardener, has lots of dogs, cats, chickens and a donkey. She paints, needle felts and creates elaborate witch hats for the Bewitching Peddlers of Halloween show in Marshall. That’s our Sherrie.
This is Korree. He's worked at Taylor's for about 12 years. He’s father to an orange cat named Oliver. Korree does all of our visual merchandising and store displays as well as giftware and home decor buying and social media. He enjoys being at Lake Michigan on his days off and he collects vintage Halloween items. Korree has an unhealthy obsession with the Kennedys and has stalked their houses in Hyannis Port on Cape Cod. That's Korree.
Heeeere's Susan. Susan has been with Taylor's, on and off, for over 20 years. She's the go to woman in the floral department (aside from Sherrie of course). She does flower buying and arranging as well as lot's of bridal consultations and maintaining of our website. She is married and has 1 teenaged son.

Maggie does floral arranging, plant pampering and order delivering here at Taylor’s. On the weekends you’re apt to find her at the local flea market hunting for jewelry and other hidden treasures. Maggie is known among her coworkers for her ability to put an outfit together and always look like a million bucks. She can accessorize her look like there's no tomorrow. That's Maggie.
