The only thing I love more than a new restaurant opening in Decatur is a new shop opening. So when Lauren told me that her boss told her that she saw a new boutique called Green Mosaic on East Ponce de Leon Ave., I rushed over to check it out.
Green Mosaic just opened on Tuesday right next to Oh! La-La in the Renaissance building at 224 E. Ponce de Leon Avenue (map). As you can see in the window photo above (apart from my reflection – whoops), the shop carries items that are organic, recycled, fair trade and eco-friendly.
There’s a whole corner of the shop devoted to kids stuff – adorable baby clothes and toys. I love the puppets (pictured below) made out of old sweaters. No two puppets are alike.
Green Mosaic also carries lotions and creams made from organic olive oil and eco-friendly house products.
I ended up buying this Dooty Bags container for my friend – well, my friend’s dog really. You can’t see the bags in the photo, but they are rolled up in the container that can be clipped on to a leash. It’s so much cuter than the generic ones you can get at the pet store.
Gigi, the owner, was so friendly and said she’s working on a Green Mosaic website. I’ll link it here as soon as it’s live. The shop is open Monday-Thursday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday-Saturday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and closed on Sunday.
I’m sure I’ll be back soon. That red dress is calling my name!
