Terrarium Talk with Haley

Perhaps you have noticed that Stash likes plants. Okay, so maybe we love plants, or even obsess over them, talk to them, and play them only the illest beats while we are in the shop. It's just our way of saying, "Thank you for staying alive and providing us with oxygen to breathe."

Both Haley and Anela have been dabbling in terrarium and container gardening for years, and Haley wanted to share some information about her process and what she's learned. Let's have her start from the beginning...

Feelin' The Love

We get it. Valentine's Day is super cheesy and commercialized and lame, and you're all too cool for it. Even Leslie Knope's Galentine's Day is going mainstream!

But let's be honest: we can all actually use a reminder to slow down and appreciate those around us.

And we can do so without being total sell-outs. 

We're wishing you more than just a day full of chocolates and flowers and teddy bears holding hearts embroidered with "BE MINE" (but knock yourself out if that's what you're into). Use this Valentine's Day as a chance to remember the things that fill your soul and make you happy. 

Because we're no good to anyone else until we're good to ourselves. 

Carve out some time for those you love -- whether it's your partner, your friends, your family, or your pets -- but don't forget to do the very same for yourself. We're busy dishing out care and compassion each and every day, but it's also so dang vital to conserve some of that for the (wo)man in the mirror. 

Whether you're looking to pamper yourself or your loved ones (or hopefully both), we've got a handful of ideas that are sure to please -- as well as a Valentine's Day-inspired playlist to get you groovin'!

Stash Gift Guide: Cosmetics

Let us guess: at this point, the bulk of your holiday shopping is done, but there are just a few more little things you need to round it all out and finish up -- and to fill the stockings. Wait, shit. The stockings. Dang it. 

Don't worry, we've got you covered with a whole bunch of cosmetics that are as good for your body as they are for the Earth. And many of them are made right here in Central Pa.! 

So as we find ourselves deep in the trenches of the season of excess and mass-production, we'd like to take a minute to recognize these little guys. By supporting them (and heck, us, too!), you're putting your money right back into the American economy, encouraging a culture of creativity, and offering meaningful gifts that each come with their own special story: the story of the people behind the product.

Stash Gift Guide: Housewares + Stationery

Sure, we're known for our curated selection of kick-ass vintage, but we also carry some one-of-a-kind, handmade products from American-based artisans. Some of them are friends, and some are family members. Some of them are people whose work we've had in our own homes and closets for years, and some are artists we've recently stumbled upon -- whether by running into them in Central Pa. or discovering them by clicking our way down an Instagram rabbit hole (come on, we've all been there). 

And as we find ourselves deep in the trenches of the season of excess and mass-production, we'd like to take a minute to recognize these little guys. By supporting them (and heck, us, too!), you're putting your money right back into the American economy, encouraging a culture of creativity, and offering meaningful gifts that each come with their own special story: the story of the people behind the product. 

This week, we're all about the artists that create stationary and housewares.
