Plant Shopping Becomes Creative Experience at "Come To Your Scentses" in Fishkill
A new store in Fishkill makes plant shopping a hands-on experience, where guests can choose from a wide selection of pots, live succulents and “all the fixings” to create a one-of-a-kind succulent diffuser on site, anytime during regular store hours.
“What sets us apart from most plant shops is our plant-your-own experience,” says Sanya L. Stewart, owner of Come To Your Scentses. “You find your favorite succulent and pot, then grab a seat at one of our planting bars and get your hands a little dirty while you create your own succulent masterpiece. We will guide you through the process and give you all the plant-care tips—no green thumb needed, all ages welcome.”
This “shop and plant boutique,” as Stewart calls it, carries plants and pots as well as gifts and artisan items made by local small businesses. Guests can also create their own DIY succulent gift box. “You can gift it, ship it or take it home,” she says.
Throughout October and November, Come To Your Scentses will offer Succulent Pumpkin Workshops where guests can create their own one-of-a-kind fairytale succulent pumpkin diffuser centerpiece.
“These make the perfect centerpieces for your everyday fall décor and for your Thanksgiving table,” Stewart says. “We will guide you through the simple steps, and you’ll discover the amazing aroma of essential oils and their benefits.” Succulent pumpkin centerpiece preorders are also available for shoppers who don’t want to make their own.
Before opening a brick-and-mortar location in Fishkill, Stewart operated the Succulent Diffuser Bar as a pop-up shop in the Hudson Valley.
“I’m proud to provide our community with a unique experience that plants happiness,” Stewart says. “Every day I’m grateful for creative hearts and dirty hands and to be able to do something I truly believe in. I have a deep-rooted love for one-of-a-kind experiences and bringing community together.”
