Sale: Spring Cleaning!

written by: Dan M.  

It's March now and you may have noticed the air starting to become a little less dense. Those morning jogs aren't as frosty, the flowers you wish you knew the names of are budding too, and you swear Edvard Grieg's "Morning" plays in the background just about everywhere you go.

The seasonal changes are coming, folks. With them also comes some changes at Boston General Store as well. Don't worry nothing too drastic. 

The upcoming spring season, and subsequent warm weather, brings with it some great opportunities to carry exciting new products from makers we haven't worked with before - which you'll hear about later. But before we can bring any new lines into the store, we're a little red-faced to say we just don't have the space to fit it all. A little spring cleaning is in order! 

The team thought long and hard and we figured one of the better ways for us to clean house was to have a SALE.

For the devotees out there, don't fret we're not permanently phasing out any makers for brighter, shinier, more handsome makers. It's just that trying to sell a scarf to a New Englander in the spring is like trying to empty the ocean with a thimble.  Make sure to head to our website or visit the shop to say hi and check out everything we've marked down.

Quickly, on to more exciting things.

Remember all that extra space I talked about us wanting so badly? Well, we're not going to waste it.

In the past week, we've brought in some really amazing goods from a lot of new companies, like a line of hand-forged garden tools from Fisher Blacksmithing - an oustanding small maker from Bozeman, Montana - and a huge collection of great wares from New England natives, Zoe and James Zillian, over at Farmhouse Pottery.  

Lastly, if you're doing some spring cleaning yourself, don't forget about our plant-based, biodegradable Common Good cleaning products! 

Happy Spring, everyone.

Tabulae Sunglasses: Meet the Maker
Tabulae Sunglasses: Meet the Maker

September 12, 2017

Boston General Store recently started carrying wares from Tabulae Eyewear, a maker based out of Brooklyn, New York whom we met at a trade show earlier this year. They're looking to throw some shade at the eyewear market and change the way it operates by offering high-quality sunglasses that are well-designed and stylish, but more affordable than other (larger) brand offerings. 

We spent time chatting with Troy, one of the owners, and founder, of Tabulae Eyewear to find out exactly what makes Tabulae sunglasses the better choice in this crowded market:

The Wilderness Matters: Why We Camp & How We Do It
The Wilderness Matters: Why We Camp & How We Do It

July 31, 2017

Here at Boston General Store, we love spending time outdoors this time of year. The New England landscapes have so much to offer when it comes to outdoor activities, especially camping and hiking, and we like to take full advantage of that.

Today, some folks are opting for an upgraded kind of camping experience, called glamping, and while we understand lengthy stays out in the wild aren't everyone’s style, we definitely prefer to keep our excursions a little more unpolished. But, that also doesn’t mean we like heading into the woods empty handed.

We take what we need to get by and leave all the rest at home.

People who've followed along on our journey know how important makers are to Boston General Store.

When the shop first launched online, the idea was to create a small assortment of products from around the world featuring craftsmen who truly cared about their trade. Today, four years after opening the business, we still carry almost all of the items from that original collection, speaking to the significance these makers have had in the continued success of BGS.
