How it all began


A few decades ago. Male and Werner Boltze. Two people, a living room and a sea chest full of beautiful little things from Asia. Male Boltze was inspired by these beautiful little things with which she could make her own home more beautiful and loving. Little things she loved. Small things with a soul. Little things with a heart. She wanted other people to enjoy these little things too. And Werner supported his times to the best of his ability - because he wanted her to be happy and her idea to grow. A real partnership. This understanding still characterizes our family business today: to support the retail trade as a supporting partner so that it can grow! From a small florist in a village somewhere in Schleswig-Holstein to a chain of hundreds of stores throughout Germany.
