I'd have to say the highlight of my latest San Fran trip was visiting the General Store - so I've decided to highlight them.The overall aesthetic of this shop made me stay there for over an hour. I blame their extremely well curated shelves and tables for luring me in. It was full of pottery, jewelry, books, random art and vintage items.
I'm really into one-off types of things and so when I realized that all the pieces were created by local artisans, I had to look at every single item in detail.
The vintage jewelry was amazing. I wanted to take some home with me - it was hard to part from them. Luckily, I found out that there is a General Store location in Venice Beach. So, it's nice to know that when I need my vintage fix, I can mosey on over to that one.
I ended up walking away with a beautiful piece of pottery that I gave to my parents as a gift. I mean, they're pretty cool, so I guess they deserve it.
The other major aspect of this shop that kept me captive for so long was the amazing green house in the backyard. My weird obsession with green houses never fails - a billion photos had to be taken, of course.
So, I'm sure it's pretty clear that the next time you're in San Francisco you'll be stopping off at the General Store. Because after everything I just told you, how could you not?
Don't worry, if making that trip isn't in the near future then check out their site.
