people were surprised when Laura McLarty opened Flush Bathroom Essentials. “How can you expect to pay the rent by selling bathroom stuff ?” the naysayers bleated. “Good luck,” they added as they rolled their eyes. Now Flush has four profitable years under its belt and is expanding into the vacated Waterlily Shoes space while the latter moves to larger premises. Laura’s many years as a retail buyer in home products has allowed her to identify an important niche. Bathrooms are numerous in most homes, and they’re updated regularly. There are very few sources for good quality and up market accessories. As a matter of fact, there are very few indeed that bring all the elements together in meaningful selection. Flush answers these needs. Customers from Vancouver and Victoria regularly patronize the store; Laura is pleased by how many U.S. customers state they have never seen such a great selection anywhere, nor presented in such a professional way. Base offerings are organic cotton towels, robes, and pajamas; bathmats, vanity mirrors (best selection anywhere); design forward bathroom hardware; functional accessories such as shower and tub organizers; counter accessories; heated towel racks (best selection anywhere); unique shower curtains; Canadian-made body care products and décor. The new expansion will feature a line of proprietary hardwood vanities and stainless steel wall hardware. No wonder the professionals are using Flush as a one-stop source for outfitting bathrooms in style. Be sure to visit Flush Bathroom Essentials soon; it’s a beautiful, expertly merchandised store that will provide you with lots of inspiration.
