Seed to Stem is a small gift shop located in the city of Worcester, Massachusetts. More than just a gift shop, Seed to Stem is the creative culmination of two artist's ideas to create a unique shopping experience like no other. Seed to Stem is owned and operated by Virginia Orlando and Candace Atchue, who started a multitude of projects together in 2003. The shop itself celebrates the beauty and perfection of the natural world, boasting unusual botanicals, terrariums, natural objects, curiosities, home accessories, antiquities and more. These two women carefully craft each unique terrarium and piece of botanical art in the shop, as well as curate each item they carry with a discerning eye. Virginia and Candace have been influenced by the natural world, travel, art and design, and the stories antiques carry with them. Their obsession with the juxtaposition of the beauty of life as well as in death is prominent throughout their shop. They hope that by connecting people with nature, they can help them further connect with their own selves, and back to their roots.
