Steal this Idea! Tin Can Flower Pots

Walking around Brooklyn on a recent Saturday, I stumbled on a sweet and simple flower shop named Stem. It's that kind of shop neighbors must wander in for a bundle of flowers and a chat. Not too commercialized, but highly stylized. Wish I lived down the block.

I loved all the details: the homemade sign in the window; the single-flower bundles on the table inside to choose from; the etched 1940s mirror inside; the way the owner wraps flowers in twine and brown paper. It's all so perfect. But what pulled me in from off the street were the tin-can pots.
