A letter from the owners

Hello, Neighbor!

Just wanted to drop a quick update on the progress of Monstera's. It’s been really wonderful to see how excited our community is about our little book & plant shop! We knew we were excited about it, but honestly weren’t expecting so much support from others. So, thank you.

We started working on this idea last summer. We wanted to try something different from our corporate tech jobs and put our effort toward building something REAL. We also love O.P. and wanted to invest into our town. We wanted to get to know our neighbors – and show our kids that you can make good things happen if you’re patient, you take a few risks, and you don’t mind scrubbing floors.

Things are really rolling now – we’re in the middle of renovating our space (7930 Floyd), which we already love and I’m sure you will, too. Our first truckload of books was delivered last week. We’re building display tables in our garage for merchandise. Family members are testing the first orders from our website and we’ve been visiting our plant supplier to fill the shop with #PlantVibes.

We’re shooting for the store to be open in March... we can all head into porch season with a good book in our hands. Stay tuned!

P.S. - Follow along the next few weeks on our Instagram and Facebook to be the first to know when the store is open!
