Inside Folia Collective — a Plant Shop in Pasadena, California

Over the past couple of years the Instagram community has led us to meet lots of new people in the digital world, most of whom we'll probably never meet IRL (in real life) purely because we're all so spread out around the globe. When we found ourselves passing close to Pasadena on our way to Los Angeles, we knew we had to make a quick detour and visit Danae in her plant shop, Folia Collective

The shop is located on a small covered street which is in the style of an English shopping arcade, complete with red telephone box. We didn't think we'd go half way round the world to be greeted with something so familiar...

Danae has a great selection of plants which sell quickly so everything you see is fresh and ready for your home, she even provides printed care instructions with each plant and is more than happy to give further advice if needed. If the plants aren't enough the shop stocks plenty of plant paraphernalia and gifts. Had we not packed our suitcases full to the brim already I'm sure we would have brought a terracotta pot (or two) home with us - in fact we saw lots of terracotta in the US that we've not seen yet in England and would quite like to have some!

Thanks to Danae at Folia Collective for being very welcoming and letting us take some pictures.
