561 Post Road East, Westport

I love a crumbling old car dealership as much as the next person, but converting it into a spectacular greenhouse/café full of artisanal gewgaw and gardening supplies is, like, preferred. So thank you to Urban Outfitters’ newest eco-friendly retail venture, Terrain! Suddenly my friends have kitchens full of terrariums (!) and I have a rare strain of Czech apple tree trying to pop out fruit in my back yard. 

Robin’s note: A lot of the items may seem pricey. Because they are, there’s no getting around it. But most items are made in small batches by local artists and entrepreneurs from sustainable or reclaimed resources.

Their specialty: Terrariums, organic health and beauty products, hard-to-find plants, and gardening tools.

What you should buy: Terrariums and interesting plants.

What you may not know but should:
  - The outside walls and windows are salvaged from the Philadelphia navy yard.
  - On Saturdays you can enjoy free samples from the cafe, musicians, and artists.
  - Their website includes cafe recipes and DIY project instructions, so you can try to “make it yourself” before giving up and buying it.
