Monday Morning Coffee With the Unique Unicorn


SJC Marketing shares one of their favorite places to grab a delicious slice of pizza.

Small businesses in St. Joseph are more than meets the eye. They are a dream thought up by their creator, they help the city thrive and some of them bring character to a revitalized downtown area that is coming alive more each day. They each have their own niche and now a new shop specific for green thumbed friends and plant lovers has found its home downtown in St. Joseph.

Located at 618 Francis Street, Owner Wendy Lilly brings her passion to the downtown environment in St. Joseph. The Unique Unicorn is a one-of-a-kind shop that allows you to choose from a variety of beautiful plants and provides education and advice about maintaining and caring for those houseplants.

The Unique Unicorn goes above and beyond to supply new plant adopters with the tools that they will need as well as education on how to care for their new home additions. During specific times of the year, they also offer repotting services for growing plants. The shop features special pots created by local artisans along with their selection of eccentric, fun pots and planters, as well as accessories for your growing plant. The shop currently utilizes a 3D printer to create some of their pots.

It has been a difficult year for small business, and especially businesses that have opened this past year to navigate their approach to challenges created by COVID-19. The Unique Unicorn has handled these challenges very well by sharing their schedule and special events on their social media, doing live adoption and plant sale events, as well as offering private shopping appointments.

In the future, we can look forward to the expansion of offerings that will be provided in the shop and utilizing the shop for small movie nights.

At SJC Marketing, we love collaborating with creative companies in the community. Utilizing your unique traits allows you to stand out among other businesses. Channel your inner Lisa Frank and let your marketing sparkle and shine!
