Pulp & Stem is a new venture for owner Abbey Fowler, who opened 6.25 Paper Studio inside MoDiv in 2011, and expanded to her own space on Monroe Center in 2013.
Fowler is working with Forrester Farm in Ada, owned by Ann Forrester, for the floral component of the shop. Flowers and plants will be grown at Forrester Farms during the local growing season, and will be a combination of fresh-cut stems, dried flowers and potted herbs, plants and succulents.
Fowler creates a portion of her cards and stationery in-house and works with a community of 10-12 local stationery companies to source most of the rest. She’ll also bring her custom stationery and invitation capabilities to Pulp & Stem, for customers planning weddings and other celebrations. Other products expected in the shop include vases, small home décor items, candles and a bevy of small, unique gifts. The shop will also carry gift bags and simple gift wrapping options to make any of their items into a ready-to-give present.
