Remember the Neighborhood Apothecary? I wrote about them not long ago when I discovered them at the block party. At the time, you sort of had to follow a map or a trail of bread crumbs to get to their store on the 4th floor of the Blackburn building. I saw the owner Meg and her associate Clint the other day, moving into new retail space on Pleasant Street!
Their new location is 17 Pleasant Street:
I bought some chamomile while I was there.
Meg was out, so Clint was manning the counter:
Clint’s name was inspired by Clint Eastwood, but he’s much nicer than Dirty Harry.
Stop by and check out their wares! They will be having a grand opening soon for the new location. I’ll post the info when it is available.
A nice surprise for me at the block party for me was the new “Neighborhood Apothecary“. I arrived on the scene from the west end near Giuseppe’s, and met this fine fellow:
who was handing out coupons for a free sample from the Neighborhood Apothecary, a new store on the 4th floor of the Blackburn Building (2 Main St.)! They sell organic herbs, seasonings and teas, natural body products, stones, cards, books, and soon also some natural herbal remedies. (Regular hours: 8am – 6pm, Monday – Sunday.) The biggest draw for me is probably the herbal teas! Loose herbal tea can be hard to find locally outside of chains like Teavana, so it’s nice to have something local in walking distance of my apartment.
The entrance is not immediately evident. You have to go through the parking lot next to Giuseppe’s:
They have a weekly raffle for a discount coupon, which I entered and – to my surprise – won! I get a 5% discount on my next purchase!
