The Plum Room - Mind, Body, Spirit - a New Business in Sturbridge, MA


The Plum Room sign

A great big welcome to The Plum Room, which opened the first weekend of August 2009.  Owner Valerie Allard has been hard at work arranging all of the goods she offers to the shop's visitors.  The Plum Room provides herbal remedies, aromatherapy products, leaf teas, and a variety of other items to lift one's spirits.

The Plum Room is located at 425 Main Street (Route 20) in historic Sturbridge, MA.  The building's 1880's construction suits the business very well, with its hardwood floors and beamed ceilings.  Allard has spent quite a bit of time preparing for her opening day, painting the walls in earthtones and creating a welcoming atmosphere.

In addition to the products that Allard provides, she has invited the services of nearby practitioners.   Dawn Simpson is an Angelic Life Coach who will be available for angel readings and Reiki healing.  Janine Drake will offer tarot card readings.  Allard hopes to provide workshops on these topics to her customers at The Plum Room.



The Plum Room

During my visit to The Plum Room, I picked up a tea ball (something I'd been wanting to do for years), and Allard ground up an herbal tea mix of her own creation in her big marble mortar and pestle.  The mix included ecchinacea, ginseng and several other ingredients.  Allard recommended that this would make an energizing iced tea.


The Plum Room


The Plum Room is open from 10 AM to 5 PM daily, including weekends.  Allard is happy to be available in the evenings for those who need her, so call her directly for extended hours.
