One of my favorite little gems were the paper faces which are filled with seedlings - herbs and such. Maya explained that the woman who makes them creates molds of old doll faces and then presses the recycled paper into them to make the seedling pouches. I thought they were so oddly endearing - I had to buy a couple for a friend. I would have liked a few for myself just to place on a shelf somewhere, but seeing as how I don't have a shelf of my own these days I decided to leave them for others to enjoy. I would have also liked to bring home one of those wooden spoons, or a bowl or a pretty linen of sorts - but again, no happy home for them to thrive in!
So for the rest of you who can, do yourself a favor and pop into Lowell. Or, don't pop in and rather linger and take your time enjoying it all.
PS. Lowell can be found at 819 N Russell Street!
