You know the feeling you’d get as a child when the ice cream man would stop on your street? Well that’s how we feel about mobile plant shops. They’re cute, they’re mobile, and they’ve really got the goods!
Who wants to go the store anyways when the store can come to you, right?! Well that’s the beauty behind mobile shops, and it seems to be a trend that is catching on more and more in the garden community these days.
Breaking the mold of traditional brick & mortar spaces, these pop up style stores come in all shapes and sizes from old delivery trucks, to vintage Airstream trailers, to VW buses, and more. Below are some of our favorite mobile plant shops we’ve ever seen, so scroll on down to check them out!
This may be the most adorable take on a mobile greenhouse ever, and it even has an awesome name – Pili! Based in Seattle, Washington and owned by Inside Wild you can find this sweet plant shop selling succulents, houseplants, planters and accessories.
Airstreams are about as cool as vintage trailers come! So when you throw some beautiful houseplants into the mix, it is no doubt a win-win situation! The husband and wife team behind Fort Worth, Texas’ Grow have nailed this combo with their renovated airstream plant shop. We don’t think they could have done it any better!
The land down under is always inspiring us with their creativity and unique shopping experiences. So of course they have one of the coolest mobile, garden nursery’s out there!
