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.

Volante Farms: History, Grown from the Ground
Volante Farms: History, Grown from the Ground

November 07, 2017

Celebrating it's 100th year in business, the grounds of Volante have lived through more cultural change than most of us could experience in two lifetimes. But how did this local farm outlive and outlast so much transition and stay successful for an entire century? 

For one, Volante Farms has been continuously family owned and operated for all of the 100 years they've been around. Second, Volante has adapted. Not just in our time of this new century, but always.

Great Gift Ideas for Party Hosts
Great Gift Ideas for Party Hosts

October 24, 2017

'Tis the season for hosting parties, folks. And since you're likely going to be an attendee at one of many this year, it's the right time to start thinking about how you're going to say thank you for all those invitations. 

Bringing a host or hostess gift isn't always everyone's first priority when they're attending a party. We can understand that. If it's an elegant event, you're likely going to spend most of your time leading up to that night worrying about what to wear. If it's a casual shindig, you might be scrambling to find someone to cover your shift, or looking for a babysitter, so you can actually show up.

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:
