“Local Store” is a plant store closely tied to the locality, where anything about plants can be freely consulted, regardless of one’s age or gender.
The entrance is overflowing with greenery. The store has many rare, and also many cute, things, from decorative plants to garden trees, and succulent plants from tuberous roots to cacti. Even if you are just looking around, it is a fun store that will heal your heart.
The owner also runs a second hand clothes shop, and handles not only plants but also old clothes. However, the two are definitely not incompatible; the clothes are well integrated into the interior as a part of the display.
Two of the store’s recommended items are the handmade wooden GREEN FLAG pots, and the plants grown in pots that have bandanas pasted onto them – these plants are particularly popular. (There is an extra charge for the bandana pot.)
The plants here are ones that can mostly survive without being watered every day. Even in a busy daily life, just having one cute pot in the room can make you feel calm, so how about trying to look for your own favorite plant?
Starting on Saturday, February 18, every weekend (Saturdays and Sundays) there will be a POP UP at the café “Nakameguro Lounge” in Nakameguro.
