Don't Forget the Mom & Pop Shops!

Yesterday afternoon, I got stir-crazy and took the boys out. We ended up in Dorchester and I stopped into Lambert's on Morrissey Blvd. I've driven by this place countless of times and have always wanted to stop, but never did. I'm so glad I did! It's awesome. I could spend an hour just looking at the plants there.

I was actually surprised at how good their prices were! My grape tomato plants from seeds aren't doing too hot. I never planted "real" tomato plants. Lambert's had really nice looking plants and pretty darn cheap - $1.98 ea or 6 for $9.98 ($1.66 ea). So I grabbed 6 of the Big Boy tomatoes. Considering I bought plants just like this at Lowe's last year for $3.48, I thought I scored big. Plus, the plants I bought at Lowe's last year weren't as good as these.

So just remember - don't forget your local Mom & Pop shops for your plant and grocery needs! Not only are you helping your local economy and neighbors, you might actually get a much better deal as well! Lambert's also has stores in Brockton and Westwood. They have Garden Centers in Hingham, Pembroke, & the Easton/Brockton Line. Check their website HERE for more info!

I love Lamberts! I grew up going there. One of the Lambert families were neighbors of ours.

Lambert's is good we haven't been there in a while. We use to get subs at the deli.
Katy milk at BJ's was $2.15 the other day.
