The Columbian—Launchpad winner Marianne Wilson Stein will open Dandelion Teahouse & Apothecary on Saturday, May 22nd, in downtown Vancouver.
Stein won the $40,000 prize from Vancouver’s Downtown Association in August. Her teahouse concept was picked from a pool of over 35 applicants by an independent panel of local residents, property owners and business owners.
Wilson Stein’s business, Gifts From the Earth, has been a Vancouver Farmers Market staple for a decade. She began making natural products 20 years ago when a naturopath friend enlisted her to make lotions and bath salts for Christmas presents.
