My review on TripAdvisor:
Starr Collective at 135 West 28th Street
I was recently walking around the Flower District when I came across a store in the middle of two flower shops. Their window display was very intriguing and I walked into the Starr Collective, a unique flower shop in its own right. The store specializes in preserving flowers in a special resin and these creative works of art are made by the family who runs the shop. They are made in the back of the store with their special machinery.

As I walked through the store I noticed all the beautiful and interesting works of art that were done with fresh and dried flowers. The owners daughter, Annie Mack, who serves as the showroom manager and a co-creative member of the team and runs the front of the shop, explained to me that the family also does special orders for weddings where they take flowers from the bride and the wedding party and preserve them in the resin as gifts and keepsakes for the wedding participants.

The artwork on the wall are original works by the manager’s mother who creates each one by hand. These line the walls of the store.

There are all sorts of creative gifts and art objects in the store to decorate any home or office. If you are hoping to preserve a moment in time, bring your flowers to Starr Collective to keep your memories alive.
