The Lollipop Shoppe x Between Two Thorns

Monday, April 23rd, 2018

Coming up, The Lollipop Shoppe will be hosting workshops in our beachfront showroom with the very lovely, Between Two Thorns.

Between Two Thorns began life in early 2017 as a mere market stall in the centre of Brighton selling cut flowers. With Alys’ background in floristry – it seemed a natural transition to sell ready made bouquets. Unfortunately it didn’t work! So flowers led down a natural path to plants and after much experimenting, propagating, courses, reading and research, the littlest plant shop was born.


The Brighton based plant shop, coffee shop and work shop have just this week populated TLS with a selection of beautiful, easy to care for, houseplants to enhance your interior.


Between Two Thorns is holding a Make Your Own Terrarium here at The Lollipop Shoppe on 13 May, starting at 12pm. You can book your place here.

Imagine having a plant that needs very little care…that exists in its very own ecosystem! Well you don’t have to imagine – you can build one for yourselves! Everything is provided and you take your very own terrarium home with you when you have made it.
