You might want something green to display on a table or windowsill next month after you’ve removed the holiday frippery.
Or maybe you’re looking for a gift that keeps on giving.
In either case, we were thrilled to find succulents growing in teacups at The Rock and Art Shop on Main Street in Ellsworth.
A sales clerk advised that at least ten species of succulent are planted in each teacup from donkey’s tail to rosettes. Teacups are $20.
We also found pots of Ken’s Candy variety of begonias. Those are $8.
The shop also has flowering air plants for $10. You know the beauty of air plants, right? No soil required.
We also spied a vertical passion flower plant and several round terrariums suitable for hanging.
The shop also has Rifle Paper Co. journals and writing pads for tracking all your upcoming New Year’s intentions.
The Rock & Art Shop is open Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
