Out-of-Potting Experience

Antiquey things will always be cool in your book (granny panties and old lady perfume included).

But in case you need another reason to keep things fresh, er, old, head over to Adaptation Floral Design, a new spot run by Mike LaSage and Liz Gudmundsson, two hipster pals with a soft spot for flora and ’50s kitsch.

The Inman Park store is part flower shop, part art gallery: Ceiling-high windows light a clothesline strung with orchids and candid Polaroids in one corner; retro Formica tables display moody photos of Gudmundsson and crew in another.

Each week, the duo searches local markets for fresh roses, hydrangeas, and safari sunset blooms to sit next to oversize vintage matchbooks and Fringe Studio vases sourced from Savannah.

Have them adorn your next event (after all, they met while designing for the likes of Elton John and Paul McCartney) or pick up a bouquet to give to your favorite honey bunch.

Even if she does wear dentures.
