Check this out!

Now I don't know how many of you folks shop here but I don't. But the other day we were passing thru this favorite shopping area and I noticed this neat store front. At first glance one might see nothing special. Come on, let's take a closer look.What have we here? I heard two girls say, "Hey mom, it has weeds growing out of it". Nah, take another look.I believe you would call this sedum and lots of it. I placed my camera right against the wall and shot upward. Is this not beautiful?I thought it was just gorgeous. How cool would it be if more stores did this?!?!? I don't know if you noticed or not but the outer metal part with the name on it is stamped with birds. This is definitely a cool store!

I have seen a few bloggers mention shopping here but I never have and sure have not seen a store as cool as this one. How cute with the birds and the sedum! Thank you for sharing the photos.

You are welcome Mildred I just thought it was so different looking.

Milah said...

I had to look at it twice to see what you were talking about. How cool is that!?
Thanks for sharing!

I've seen the stores but never peeked in the window. I'll check it out next time I'm over at Dana Park.

Beth said...

That is pretty cool!

Becky said...

Wow! I've never seen plants growing on store walls before sissy! Neato bandito!

TC said...

And now we have green walls along with green roofs. Cool! That's a nice collection of sedum too. What's the name of the store Ms. Susie? That pole is blocking the next to last letter from view. Is it an "n?" If so, what's an "Anthropologne" store sell?

We have that store here and it's really nice. I've never seen a building like that before, very cool and I just love that they planted the wall!

Susie said...

TC-It's actually an "i". They sell some really hip looking clothes. That probably explains my "not so hip" look! lol;)

Jacquie said...

That is cool! I would love to have an Anthropologie here in small-town Arkansas! (or even big-town Arkansas for that matter)

Wow!!! I have to bring my husband in to see this! That's one of those hanging living tapestries he photographed at the garden show. He wants to do one on a huge open side of our house with sedums. That's thinking outside the box!
Thanks for taking your camera shopping and snapping the photos!

Wow, I clicked on the pics to see all the fine details. So pretty! Thanks for posting this. I've never seen anything like that!

Susie, how very unusual. Looks like a very 'green' store and one to check out. No telling what neat ideas they have inside. :)

That's a cool looking store and planting beds. :)

I did shop there once, when on vacation. bought a pretty smocked top there to bring back to my daughter. It was from the sale rack because their clothes are pretty expensive. I love sedum. I have a couple in my yard.

It took a few minutes to figure that out. Amazing. I would shop there to encourage their wonderful new concepts. Very unique and beautiful.

that is something to see!

Rose said...

Susie, I had to look at these twice to realize the plants were growing on a vertical wall! Very cool, indeed.

Terri said...

Gorgeous! Love that wall o' sedum! :)

DP Nguyen said...

I love the clothes at Anthropologie... I go buy clearance because their normal prices are outrageous. But that is a very cool bed of plants!

Bren said...

This is wonderful.... thank you for sharing. We don't have any of these shops in my neck of the woods. I remember a few years back visiting a couple of greenhouse growers who supply and design these live roofs. WAY COOL!!!!!

Happy Mothers Day weekend to you dear friend in the garden.

Very cool Susie!!

Hope your neck is feeling better! I came in with a neck full of some strange bites last week. They aren't mosquito bites, but red spots that itch like crazy. Speeking of mosquitos...they are going to be awful here this year. With the wet lands behind us and all the flooding we have had, It's going to be a difficult summer for gardening!!

Have a nice weekend!

Daisy said...

Susie, I have never heard of this store, but it sounds like they have some creative people in charge. This was very interesting to see. Thanks for sharing that. Hope you had a good weekend! :D

I love their catalog, I'd love a chance to pop in and browse. The live wall is amazing.
