Morgan Jones has opened a store called Dry Dock Goods on the second floor of the Keystone building, 619 Commercial Ave., where she is offering a variety of plants, art and pottery.
For Jones, who moved away from Anacortes after high school and ended up in Tucson, Arizona, the store is a side job. Her main work is remotely analyzing ecology data for a project based in Boulder, Colorado.
The store is her excuse to bring in as many plants as she desires, including a passion for desert plants.
“It’s absolutely a passion project, 100 percent,” Jones said.
The store’s location faces the sun, she said.
“I needed lots of light for my extensive plant collection,” Jones said.
Artists from Anacortes, Skagit County and Arizona are represented. Jones, who studied sustainable forest management at the University of Washington and has a background in botany, plans to offer monthly plant and pottery workshops in the future.
