If you haven't visited Botanica, the Franklin Park Conservatory's gift shop, give it a go. (If you haven't visited the Conservatory in general, put it on your summer to-do list!) I chatted with manager Barb Carruthers for this week's Shop Talk.

The store is small but mighty, with some great little treasures, from bonsai trees to stationery to little leather flower rings that are super cute. They also carry one-of-a-kind vases and bowls hand-blown in the Conservatory's Hot Shop. Good stuff!
