i was eating a yummy lunch a few weeks ago at outerlands (with artist leah giberson while she was in town for her show at rare device) and we popped in next door, to the General Store in the outer sunset for a bit of browsing. i love the vintage vibe of this sorta surfer-chic shop, well-curated with loads of unique home accessories, objects d’art, books, jewelry, clothing and a load of really cool succulents.
there’s even a wee greenhouse designed by visual artist jesse schlesinger out back, that owners serena mitnik-miller and mason st. peter appear to be constantly upgrading. the general store is one of those shops you just want to support and frequent often, a very ‘mom & pop’ local feel, and tons of great gift ideas, and complete with the sweet resident dog, macy. check out their news section for upcoming shows and events.
