Little Shop Around the Corner resells antique furniture, art, jewelry, and other wares that are donated to the nearby Missouri Botanical Garden, with all the shop’s proceeds benefitting education and research at the Garden. Gift a vintage camera ($25–$55) to your favorite photography buff or bedazzle the digits of loved ones and taxidermied chinchillas with vintage rings and other costume jewelry ($15–$35). Hammered-aluminum housewares ($8 and up) give homes a handsome and rugged character, and colorful blown-glass accessories ($20 and up) make elegant housewarming gifts for relocated birds of paradise. If you've been looking for an excuse to break out your certified-toxic 1923 gin bottle, invite a group of retired mixologists over to debate cocktails of yore with a vintage martini shaker ($45 and up).
A wall-sized exterior mural of a charming antique scene directs gardengoers around the corner to Little Shop’s bright red door. Seek out a nostalgic set of kitchenware that reminds you of grandma or find a thoughtful, storied gift for a friend among the shop's often-changing stock. Friendly and knowledgeable staff members are available to answer questions and oversee hopscotch contests Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Little Shop Around the Corner is closed on Sundays and Mondays and for the month of January.
Little Shop Around the Corner
A tall mural with cheerful, stylized images of antique home furnishings and a well-placed arrow points visitors to the cherry-red front door of Little Shop Around the Corner. Inside the charming resale shop, tail-wagging vintage merchandise and upscale antique furniture, art, jewelry, and china await to be adopted by new owners. The merchandise is sourced from donations to the Missouri Botanical Garden, located just around the corner. Garden Emeritus Trustee Evelyn Newman dreamt up the idea for the store, whose proceeds benefit the Garden's research and educational initiatives aimed at preserving botanical life, conserving resources, and combating climate change.
