Business Description

Terrarium Business for sale, Brooklyn, NY

"Twig Terrariums" was established in 2009 as an LLC between two partners, Michelle and Katy. What started as an assortment of offerings for local New Yorkers at the Brooklyn Flea Market, turned into a nationally recognized terrarium business, with brick and mortar retail, as well as on and off line sales. The business expanded into workshops and events for high end corporations, children, and other educational and entertainment entities. The brand is currently carried in an assortment of catalogs.

The publicity that ensued starting in the company's first year, included headlines in: The New York Times home section, Real Simple, TV appearance with Rachel Ray, Entrepreneur Magazine, with on site events held at prestigious corporations (Pinterest, Spotify, Facenbook) , and the NY and Brooklyn Botanic Garden. The concept continues to draw significant interest to this day.

Core Services: Planter design and creation for interiors; Weekly Terrarium & Plant Classes; On site demonstrations/events; DIY kits; Fully branded product lines; Wedding centerpieces; classes for children.

The brand/concept took off due to its originality and specialty of the "small worlds" created inside the terrariums, created exclusively by Katy and Michelle, who both write the ultimate book on Terrariums.

The owners are basically designers and creative people. They realize that their strengths lie in the creative and branding area, and they would prefer not to own or run the business anymore. They are both available to help with a transition or come on board with new owners as employees.
