If ever you should find yourself stressed out or feeling a little blue, the LOCALMOTIV doctors of shop local therapy prescribe a visit to Crimson Horticultural Rarities in Temescal Alley. Of course, studies prove that house plants are indeed mood enhancers. But we also know that shopping local improves our sense of well being too. So, this double shot remedy should do the trick.
But, likely, you’ll add a third chemical free component to this cocktail. We wouldn’t be surprised if you stopped at Curbside Creamery to enjoy their Oakland Made ice cream and frozen vegan delights before you walked through the door of Crimson. And there’s definitely no harm in it.
Then, once inside, feel your body decompress as you peruse the rare plants, florals, and beautiful and locally-crafted gift-y assortment. Everything is artfully displayed to maximize the beauty of each item. The longer you stay, the more you feel uplifted by the colors, selection, and positive energy.
No doubt you’ll feel replenished and have a productive shop local trip. Whether you purchase gifts for yourself, others, or both, this is a prescription worth filling.
