Seed Catalogs: Carrie Lippincott
Carrie Lippincott was one of three Minneapolis-based seedswomen at the end of the 19th Century. She began selling seeds in 1891 and called herself “The Pioneer Seedswoman of America.” Her seed business first opened at 319 & 323 Sixth St. S., Minneapolis. Unique among seed companies, she sold only flower seeds, not vegetables, and catered to a female clientele. Andersen Horticultural Library houses a small collection of Carrie Lippincott catalogs.
