Sunbuddies, owned and operated by Allison Langston, is Mansfield’s newest small business. The floral and gift shop opened their doors in October.
Langston said they came up with the name Sunbuddies after searching for a unique name for the shop. Unique as its name, are the added services they offer. “In addition to being a floral and gift shop, we also offer tanning, tanning lotions and aqua massage.” stated Langston. Lastly, the shop takes pride in stocking locally produced items such as t-shirts and tiger paw cups.
They do this at reasonable prices as well. Langston’s husband Thomas said “people here can’t pay big city prices, so we try to offer things at affordable prices so people here can afford to buy them.”
The Langstons look to continue adding more floral and gift items in the future. “We are very blessed to have the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people and to be able to have a business in such a wonderful town,” added Langston. “We will strive to always better our business.”
