Kinfolk Table at Last

January 14, 2014

I was thrilled to come home today to a couple of boxes titled Workman Publishing. That could only mean one thing...Kinfolk Table has finally hit Boston General Store. I poured myself a glass of wine and started my journey through one of the best cookbooks I've ever seen. 

 

Reading the introduction by Nathan Williams (co-founder of Kinfolk) gave me a renewed sense of what it means to "entertain". It is about great friends and great food. Some where along the way we get lost in the preparations to make a really elaborate evening. We lose sight in what the night is really about, enjoying each others company.

My new years resolution was to simplify my life and I think along with that it will be to re-focus myefforts and keep family and friends even closer. I invite everyone to take a look at this book (even if it isn't purchased at BGS). I promise it will be well worth the 35 dollars.

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.

Incense to Change Your Perspective
Incense to Change Your Perspective

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.
