Ed Ackerson on Flowers Studio: We let stuff come to us
GN: What's the history of the building?
The building was a flower shop and I was in here when I was about nine or ten. We bought flowers for my aunt. I remember it clearly. Later I knew some dudes who lived upstairs, when I was around eighteen. We used to hang out there and party. Then it was bought by a music shop to use as warehouse space, and they did PA rentals and repairs out of here. I came here a bunch of time to rent equipment for shows and stuff.
The building was always on my radar and I had been in here a bunch of times before it was up for sale again. It was on the market for a year and a half, and I'd drive by it every day. Finally I decided to look into it.
