ICYMI - we have plants. Lots of plants!! But once you step inside you quickly discover that this space and store is so much more. We believe that everybody deserves to live their best life aka wellness/wellbeing. And we’re all on a journey to get there. Every single one of us. Our team is here to help!

This weekend snag a plant or two (or three). They are all 25% off as part of Labor Day sale. And if you see something else you like - refillable soap, cbd joints that help you chill, a beverage, or a candle - snag that too. They are all meticulously added to the store because they are better for you and better for this planet that we all share. 🌎

Tuesday is plant day here at the store. New plants arrive and our team works all day to get them ready for you. Regardless of where you’re at on your plant journey - just beginning or an expert - we’ve got something for you!

Also, and most importantly, we hope you’ll help us welcome our newest team member, @yaelforsale. Our very own resident “plant lady”. If you have questions about our plants or yours, she’s here to help!

It took longer than expected. It cost more than anticipated. There were times when you definitely second guess yourself. But being here right now, we can unequivocally say it was worth it!

If you haven’t been in to scope the new space, come see us this weekend! ✌🏿

This Thursday August 5th we (@bscgoods.co + @_daydrink) are launching a new concept, Friends & Family! Specifically it’s a pop-up cocktail bar at @thedandylionic in Downtown Iowa City. But you already know we have much bigger and grander ideas for what this can/will become.

As we’re all venturing out into the world after a year of being disconnected from each other, Friends & Family is a space for us all to get back together.

Special thanks to @courtney.davidhizar, @jess.duling and @lologsdo for their work on this project. Doors open at 6 pm. We hope to see you then! ✌🏿

Some bad news and some good/great news.

Bad news first: We didn’t get our plant order this week. New plants will be in stock when we re-open the renovated space. Now for the great news: All of our existing plants in the store are now 50% off! Run don’t walk!! ✌🏿

Feeling very appreciative for the opportunity to do this with you all! Through the good days and the bad it feels like we’re building something truly special. I can’t express enough gratitude to everybody that’s rocking with us (near and afar)!

P.S. Looking for help on our exterior facade as we expand into more space. Some type of mural needs to go there!

What’s up everybody! We’re open today (Monday) until 4ish and running a sale - everything is 20% off. If you’re in the area swing by and snag some goods!

We’ve experienced such tremendous growth over these past three months. Can’t thank everybody enough for supporting this store and space!! The store may look a little different but our mission and vision remains the same. Creating a space where sustainability, self-care and wellness includes and is accessible to everybody! ✌🏿

Today’s a great day to support a black owned business. Any black owned business. Or as many as you can. Juneteenth is now a federally recognized holiday which means as a nation we’re still reckoning with our past. If you’re able to, show some love for a black owned business you want to see stick around.

We’ve said it once. But it’s worth saying again. This space is yours as much as is it ours! After the year we just had it feels real good to see new and old faces. And it feels real real good to be able to create a space that’s welcoming for the community.

Hope to see you soon! ✌🏿

Wanted to take a moment this afternoon talk about these bad boys: DRYER BALLS

Wool dryer balls are such a great budget friendly swap to a healthier and more eco friendly household.

Made from 100% New Zealand wool, just one of these guys lasts 1000 loads. They are more cost effective costing about a penny a load vs dryer sheets, which typically last 200 loads, costing about a nickel a load. On top of that, these will dry your clothes 20-30% faster SAVING YOU MONEY 🤑

Even more importantly though, these will not cover your clothes in ridiculously nasty chemicals like Chloroform and Benzyl Acetate unlike commercial dryer sheets. Annnnnd THEY CAN BE BACKYARD COMPOSTED!

Just thought you all should know 🤗 have a great Monday!!
