HEX, a lifestyle boutique, opened its doors in downtown Grass Valley right before the holidays. Located at 114 Neal Street, next door to the new Thirsty Barrel Taphouse (and behind the Del Oro Theater) the shop features women’s apparel, gifts and home decor. Amy Stoeckle says, “We believe in supporting small businesses & offer an array of quality, handmade merchandise from a variety of selected artisans. We search out & hand pick our artisan suppliers to give a wide span of eclectic & affordable items, with the quality we all look for. When there is love & passion going into creating a product, it shows & that is what we care about!” HEX will be offering monthly floral and botanical workshops, so check out their workshop page for upcoming events. If you’re looking for California grown plants, stop in and check out the airplants, staghorn ferns, maiden hair ferns, to cactus and tropical foliage. Amy’s background in design and her floral company, Bee, Leaves N’ Love, a floral company, gave her a passion for plants that she looks forward to sharing with others. The shop is currently open Monday, Wednesday-Saturday 10-6 and Sundays 11-4, closed Tuesdays.
