Earlier this year, the four-story Topshop store at Oxford Circus opened a pop-up cactus shop dubbed 'Barry The Cactus.' With a growing number of millennials filling their homes with cacti and succulents, the pairing of high street clothing and plants makes perfect sense.
The Barry The Cactus store can be found inside the massive Topshop store located on Oxford Street in London. Inside the little pop-up boutique, customers can pick up everything from tiny palm-sized cacti, to full-scale planters. The shop also sells terrariums, hanging planters, and cactus-themed gifts such as keyrings, tote bags, and cards.
What is particularly unique about the Barry The Cactus shop is that the plants themselves are personified as people, and some of the planters are even affixed with googly eye. This humorous branding helps to make plants more fun and accessible for young consumers who may be looking for something low-maintenance.
