Located about 2 miles from home at Yard 8, Plant the Future offers a jaw-dropping array of plants in all shapes and sizes. As a design studio, retailer, and art gallery, Plant the Future offers ready-to-go plants for your home as well as large-scale art installations made with plants. Choose from terrariums, floor plants, figurines, decorative moss, and more. Pick out moss letters to make a sign in your home, or grab a terrarium for the most amazing living centerpiece for your table. Plants from Plant the Future are worth the investment. Not only are they unique, but they’re easy to care for. The first FAQ on the site asks if those of us without a green thumb can handle these plants. Plant the Future’s answer? Yes. Many of the pieces use desert plants that don’t need much maintenance.
Amano Artisans is the kind of business you feel good about buying from. Featuring collections of jewelry and other accessories made by artisans in Colombia, Amano Artisans’ storefront is located on NW Second Avenue just a half-mile from Yard 8. Its owner, a native of Columbia, realized how interested people were in the pieces of jewelry she’d bring back from visits to her home country. Today, Amano Artisans offers eco-friendly, sustainable collections handcrafted in Colombia by women and other people who live in low-income areas. Choose a statement necklace made with silk cocoons, a retro necklace made with tagua nut, or a simple macrame bracelet you can wear every day, and support a global endeavor right from your neighborhood.
If Plant the Future is your go-to when you’re in need of a home refresh, and Amano Artisans is where you head when you need a personal pick-me-up, The Wynwood Shop is the perfect place when you’re in need of something for yourself and your home. Grab some locally made vegan soap, a Wynwood hat that plays on a big amusement park, or a statement piece by a local artist. We mean it when we say The Wynwood Shop has it all.
