Our Story

Fern Shop is a plant design studio and home goods store located in an old gas station in the College Hill neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio. Bridging design and nature, Fern offers a carefully edited selection of beautiful and unique objects along with a curated assortment of houseplants. 

Hi, I'm Megan Strasser, owner of Fern Shop.
I've spent my career creating spaces and environments from starting a popup vintage clothing boutique to turning a 1968 camper into a mobile coffee cart, styling for magazine and craft books, and now owning Fern.
I am a Cincinnati native and after living abroad for a few years I somehow managed to convince my Belgian husband to move us and our 2 children under the age of 2 back to my hometown. I saw a need in this city for a shop where plants merged with design, where indoor house plants were carefully selected and styled with handmade ceramic vessels and where folks received straightforward and complete care information. In 2014 I opened Fern in the old gas station across the street from my parents house.
I've always said that plants are one of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to transform an environment, and I feel so lucky to play a role in people designing and loving their spaces.
