Local shops such as Tansy are always great for when you want to treat yourself, get something as a gift, or when you just want to window shop.
In June of 2019, Shawna Christian and Colette Fowler opened their shop, Tansy on Magnolia Blvd. Both Colette and Shawna are long time plant lovers and have always decorated by using plants and boho style items. Growing up and living up in Los Angeles, Both Shawna and Colette have always had a passion for creating a home sanctuary full of plants overflowing with beautifully and uniquely arranged home decor pieces from around the world. Shawna’s home looks like the inside of Tansy and Colette has been a passionate gardener for almost 30 years creating an indoor jungle, outdoor bird and butterfly sanctuary and edible garden.
Tansy was created when Shawna had turned 50 and wanted to work with something she was passionate about. Once she stopped running her outsourced IT company, she was able to put all of her energy into Tansy. Her kids had grown up and fled the coup so she was able to build her shop where other people could come and be inspired to create their own home sanctuary. Selling some of their favorites such as the Ming Aralia, the Terrarium to go kits, Pilea, and the will deleted flowers from their global fair trade partners.
I know from previous visits to the store, that it is an amazing place to visit and its so vibrant and brightly colored. They sell everything from cards and glass elephants to red prayer plants and large monstera plants. I know I go there often to see what plants they are growing for my own collection, recently purchasing a prayer plant and a string of pearls.
