Greenpointers Holiday Market // Vendor Highlight

Greenpointers ♥’s terrariums! Greenpointers has held some terrarium classes and you should see the terrarium in an I-Pad box that Jen and Jon made!

So obviously we are excited that With Roots is a vendor at the upcoming Greenpointer’s Holiday Market!(12/8 @ From The Source, 69 West Street).

Sharon Goldberg is a super cool chick (and Greenpoint resident) that started this one woman show and has a knack for creating beautiful teeny tiny terrariums that you can wear!

It all started when she had custom made a terrarium for a friend who loved it so much he said he wished he could wear it! Wishes do come true and these self sustaining wearable pieces of nature make a very special gift.

I also plan on purchasing a terrarium ornament!

Prices range from $35-58.
