The words "affordable" and "charming" don't often come to mind when you think of plant stores, but that's where a new shop in Pilsen, Verdant Matter, is different. Not only does the shop stock affordable house and garden plants (a breath of fresh air, no pun intended), but it also carries a variety of handmade ceramic planters, home goods, gifts and accessories. Plus, stop by for Pilsen Second Fridays, when handmade pop-up markets take over the space, showcasing vintage and handmade goods from local Chicago artisans and sellers.
