Hello, I’m Gregg. I’m the owner of Roosevelt’s. I planted my first terrarium nearly 50 years ago. I learned to carefully fold the plants and squeeze them through the narrow openings of cider jugs. I was amazed at how they became more beautiful over time. Terrariums have taught me what an incredible force life has.
I opened my shop on 44th & Hawthorne five years ago. I think an old hippie creating mini-rainforests is a good fit for a quirky city like Portland. I named the store after Teddy Roosevelt because he was an environmentalist who loved nature and because people say I look like him. And we decorate our store in the Arts & Crafts style of his era.
People describe our shop as magical. It’s filled with tropical plants, moss, tree frogs, rocks, pebbles and gorgeous glass containers of every shape and size. It’s a whimsical place. I hope to see you there soon.
