Wait, You’re Telling Me…

there’s a store that basically just sells terrariums?

Yes, I am.  I stopped in to Alapash today to get some props for some Chicago TextileWorks photos.  I did it on a lark because … I mean, come on, terrariums?  A whole store for them?  That’s just a leeetle too precious, right?

Well, yes, and it’s also awesome.  I got a very cute, and very hard-to-kill set of succulents planted in an old lunchbox:

See?  Cute, right?

I also got a great big ball of moss (trust me, it’s going to be just the thing for the photos):

That's my "Gina" picture in the background.  She's still bringing me joy!

And, I got this vintage insulator:

I know it looks a little phallic, but that's how they're made.  Google it.  I'm going back tomorrow to buy the rest of them.

If you’re in Ravenswood (or, as some folks call it, North Center), I suggest you stop through. There’s lots more than terrariums going on at Alapash, and the staff is extremely nice and helpful.
