So my day started off rather routine. Wake up, brush teeth, wash face, shower, drink water, take vitamins, yada yada yada…Then by a twist of fate, I was lured downtown by the prospect of cheap tailoring. Five pieces taken in beautifully, $10 each..while you wait…but that’s a whole different blog post. Back to discussion at hand…
Now if you are anything like me and I suspect a good number of you are. You get completely turned around while in the trenches of Downtown LA.
You can only guess what I will say next..YES I was completely lost!!!
However, in my utter confusion (so close to pressing the SOS button in my car) I stumbled upon the Southern California Flower Mart. A place that I honestly thought only existed in the minds of those people who write cute little romantic comedies about the gorgeous girl next door who can’t find love, but owns a flowers shop.
This was really it. Far away from from movie land. A huge warehouse filled with endless supplies of ..flowers, plants, wax to shine your plants ..umm yes that stuff exists..and yes I bought some :).
Being that I’ve never actually been a plant owner this was sort of kismet. I’m the girl who grimaces at the thought of spending $100 bucks on a great big plant for my little Hollywood apartment. I mean shouldn’t I be putting that towards the cute wedged sandals that I scoped out at Barneys last week?
Ahh at last, the dilemma hath been solved!
That big beautiful green plant that would have depleted $100 bucks from my shoe fund..a mere $35 at the Flower Mart..
And it doesn’t stop there. They have so many cute little green ones ranging from $1.50-$5 dollars. You could fill up your entire window seal for the price of a latte at Urth Cafe. Who knew??
Warning: get there early..I nabbed my plant by the skin of my teeth as they were closing the doors at 1pm
Suffice to say that I am now a proud plant owner. “LIKE”
