Adelaide’s own boutique botanical store, Stonecrop, has expanded their roots and opened their second brick and mortar store in a gorgeous church in Hackney.
With a catalogue to satisfy any plant-lovers deepest desires, Stonecrop also features a number of homewares, jewellery, interior styling accessories and men’s and women’s fashion with a focus on local producers.
Stonecrop is the creation of owners Keta Grishaj and Lenny Kruger, who felt there was a gap in the Adelaide scene for boutique plant stores which is what led to them opening their first location on Goodwood road.
“We started our first business just over two and half years ago I think it is now, on Goodwood road. We started off small and let it grow organically into what we are now,” says Keta.
With a combined vision of creating a vibrant retail space, Keta and Lenny say their love for plants, homewares and fashion has only continued to grow with the opening of their Hackney store.
Stonecrop Hackney brings a meld of the current jungle oasis aesthetic with a unique church fit out that gives the space a rustic and home-like feel while still staying true to their existing location.
“The vibe is still very much like the Goodwood road shop in terms of it being eclectic and colourful with lots of variety,” says Keta.
“Our offering is wider [at Hackney] in terms of what we sell. We have fashion, furniture, we have a whole kitchen section and bathroom.
“Interior styling accessories was a natural progression for Stonecrop, and we are really excited to share it once open in our new space,” Keta says.
The pair have big plans for the future of Stonecrop’s Hackney location, with sights set on using the space to host local artists allowing them to share their craft to develop a strong South Australian support network for creatives.
Already a haven for indoor plant enthusiasts and those with a green thumb, Stonecrop’s newest venture proves to be the perfect one-stop-shop for home or office styling. Watch this space!
