sprout home!

we've talked about sprout home before, but not since they opened up their first nyc-based brick and mortar shop - we're overdue! so yesterday, suffering from a serious case of winter doldrums, this keen eye hauled herself all the way up to williamsburg (a serious feat of willpower when the G train is out of service), and checked out sprout home.

what a treat! there is something so welcoming about a well-edited, well-cared for garden shop in mid-winter. sprout home is like a little green beacon, beckoning you in from the grey, desolate, FRIGID williamsburg waterline.
even though the back patio was closed up for the season, the shop's interior was lovingly packed with all sorts of lush, green goods - not to mention pots and terrariums and vases and other little trinkets and accessories for the home. and, unusual for most nyc garden shops, i felt like everything was very fairly priced (i managed to escape with 5 items for only $30). i could have stayed forever (i think i spied a place under the counter where i could just camp out for a while), and will definitely be back.

i got these two pots for $5 a piece - and then repotted some rootbound cacti that i had sitting around the house.

i bought this neat little hanging glass orb for $12 (sorry for the shoddy shot)...

and these cute little air plants were only $3 each.

sprout home is located at 44 grand street in williamsburg, but if you're not in new york city, you can still shop online!
