Allow us to introduce you to Amy and Karen. This delightful mother and daughter team, collectively own Happy Plants and Pots. They not only have a passion for gardening, they also bring awareness to others about Autism Spectrum Disorders. We are pleased to have them join us, May 5 at Riverside Park as one of the small businesses, bringing the "Vintage" to the Handmade Collectives Spring Market (Vindie Edition). Read below to find out the answer to the age old question "Which comes first, the pot or the plant?"
Where did your business name "Happy Plants and Pots" come from?
Our name comes from our love of plants and the joy and happiness they bring to us. We decided to choose a name with the hopes of making others smile when mentioned.
What valuable experience did you have before starting your business?
The love of gardening is the most valuable experience we could have. We have spent years working in our gardens creating spaces that most would say we need to capitalize on. After much thought it was decided we would take the love of gardening out of our own yards and share with others.
Which comes first, choosing the pot or choosing the plant?
The pot always comes first. Then we seek out the plant that will make the pot happy. With the focus on plants that are easy to care for and best suited to the personality of the pot.
How do you choose your pots?
Each pot is carefully selected in hope that we are able to build a display that helps the customer to connect with a feeling of nostalgia. Along with the concept being vintage heirloom, re-purposing and building a quality theme.
Do you accept custom orders?
Yes we do. This is one of the main areas we would like to expand with our business. We design Happy
Boxes for any occasion. Along with customers who reach out and would like planters created with heirloom pots.
You can order a custom planter for yourself or for Mother's Day by visiting Happy Plants and Pots on Facebook + Instagram or just swing by the Handmade Collectives Spring Market, at Riverside Park in Jacksonville, Florida on Saturday, May 5 from 11am-4pm and purchase a planter in person.
