The Quiet Botanist, a botanical apothecary and dried flower shop, is coming to the Library Shop! For one day only, peruse a unique assortment of their chocolate bars, bon bons, and dried floral bouquets, all of which make the perfect little treat for yourself or a special gift for a loved one. Their delectable chocolate bars are a visual as well as delicious delight, wrapped in vintage botanical prints and beautiful gold sleeves, which highlight the botanical stamped chocolate.

Born out of a desire to slow down and listen, The Quiet Botanist was founded by Rebecca O’Donnell, a New York based award-winning Creative Director originally from Sydney, Australia. 

She draws inspiration from apothecaries of a bygone era, wild-harvested Australian botanicals, and overgrown European gardens. With their exquisite and thoughtful range of products The Quiet Botanist hopes to help foster a connection between nature, quieting, and beauty.

If you can't make it, a variety of chocolate bars are now available on our website HERE.
