*Partnering with likeminded producers, farmers, and makers is one of the most important aspects of our business, and one of our defining features. We do our best to work with businesses and organizations that we can stand behind 100%*
One of our most recent partners is The Green Room, a Groton-Mystic based woman (Melissa De Sena) who has used the past year to finesse her skill in, and knowledge of, propagating and nurturing plants. With a lifelong love for greenery (and always having a houseful of assorted plants already), it was an obvious next step for her. "It makes me happy being able to grow plants out of my home and provide them to my local community," she told me. Trust us, we're happy about this too. We love what she's doing and the fact that she is self-taught, and not to mention multi-talented; her previous career was as a butcher, and she currently works as a professional upholsterer and seamstress at Selective Design Interiors in Westerly RI when she's not tending to her plants.
We've begun carrying her small potted succulents (which are insanely cute) as well as her absolutely gorgeous framed pressed flower wall hangings. Each one is unique and well thought out and made from plants she forages, which only adds to their special Connecticut-based regional character.
If you enjoy seeing beautiful and calming images of plants, might I suggest you follow her @thegreenroomct? She also sells her plants and other artistic plant-based goods through this medium, and if you're in the area, she will even do deliveries.
Having some greenery and framed florals in our space always brings a smile to our faces, and we hope it does for you, or a loved one, too.
