Small business owner Amy Bellfoy is opening the doors of her Rockland plant store to women entrepreneurs looking to sell their wares at a brick-and-mortar store. Amy’s Little Plant Shop opened during the height of the pandemic, selling her house plants out of her home. Starting off as a sideline activity while on leave from her 9-to-5 job, the success of her business soon required Bellfoy to set up shop at a storefront. /PXUXPZFBSTJOUPSVOOJOHIFSCVTJOFTT  Bellfoy is looking to give other small busi- nesses, particularly women-run businesses, the exposure she would have liked when she started.

contact Amy’s Little Plant Shop to take part.
