ECHO PARKThe Echo Park Cactus Store — a cube of a storefront packed with succulents — has branched out to New York, opening a pop-up shop this weekend in a greenhouse on the Lower Eastside of Manhattan, reports GQ Magazine.

The plants are being driven across the country to the Manhattan store, which will remain open until November. The greenhouse is packed with about 400 plants, with some rare varieties priced at $1,200, according to NY Magazine.   Even for New York, filled with almost every imaginable type of store and retail format, the Echo Park Cactus Store is something  unique.

Said New York Magazine:

“Even the most cactus-crazy New Yorkers with succulent-packed windowsills have likely never seen this kind of inventory — or met such real-deal cactus collectors before.”

    LOL! Those chumps will eat this up — too bad we can’t sell ’em overpriced Mexican food, too!

    • We eat up overpriced “new york style pizza” over here quite a lot so it evens out. Not that any of this is a problem for rich people of course.

  2. Nice to see them get recognition.. the guys that run the shop are great guys.. glad this little bit of Echo Park is represented in NYC
