Plant Mode is a local plant shop, tucked away in the back of the Furniture Lounge in Downtown Champaign.  All you can usually find there are plants, naturally.  However, on Saturday you’ll be able buy some great records.  Green Thumbs grab your Audiophiles and head on over to Plant Mode.  You’ll both leave happy!  …and someone once told me that playing music for your pants helps them stay healthy. Who knows, give it a try.
