Local Business Spotlight: Seed to Stem transplanting to Canal District

Print More

When you’re out shopping this summer in hopes of finding a decorative bobcat or camel skull, a deer head to hang on your wall, or a venus flytrap and insect marbles, you may find that your usual spot to grab this sort of thing has up and moved.

After four years on Shrewsbury Street, unique florist and gift shop Seed to Stem is moving this summer to Crompton Place on Green Street. An Aug. 6 opening is planned.

With what they say is tens of thousands of items in inventory, the proprietors of Seed to Stem required a larger footprint to showcase their terrariums, botanicals, antiquities and all the other gift items for sale in their store.

Co-owners Virginia Orlando and Candace Atchue opened the store next to East Park about four years ago, and they said they’ve known for about two years a move was in the offing.

“We needed more space. The back room here (Shrewsbury Street) isn’t big enough. The Canal District community is growing rapidly and we’ve always been fans of Crompton Place. It’s a real destination community,” Orlando said.
