Inside the Prickly Pop-Up Bringing Succulents to the Lower East Side
It’s summer and the sun’s out: Now’s the perfect time for sidewalk strolls and window shopping in the Big Apple. To celebrate, Max Martin, Carlos Morera, and Jeff Kaplon of L.A.’s Cactus Store have rolled out a pint-sized pop-up shop based on their Californian emporium. Visit the shop anytime between now and the onset of winter, or find out more about the cactus keepers in our book The Shopkeepers. From green-thumbed gardeners to garbage-free grocers, the book offers a global perspective on concept stores and their owners.
