NameGlidden Florist
OverviewThe Glidden Florist is a family owned and operated business. We have been part of the Northern Illinois University / DeKalb / Sycamore area since 1936. Our professional staff is dedicated to providing exceptional service. They are very friendly and knowledgeable. The Glidden Florist in DeKalb started in 1936 by Mabel Glidden from the humble beginnings of a flower cart filled with fresh cut flowers from her garden. As times fared better, the business moved into the original Glidden Homestead (now under historical preservation). As the business expanded, the Glidden family began adding greenhouses and a flower shop. Growth was steady, and in 1962 Wenke Hansen, a native of Norway, started working for the Glidden family. She developed a reputation for her European quality of design in fresh flowers and home decor. The business continued to grow in size and volume while retaining the objective of providing the highest quality in flowers and service. In 1978, the Hansen family purchased the business, and the final addition was added to the store: a beautiful room featuring a 30-ft gabled ceiling. In 2014 the business added a new twist: Glidden Goods, a gift store that features the work of local artists, "American Made" items and fair trade gifts.
