The Boston General Store had its first pop up shop this past Saturday and we had a blast. While marketing for the event a lot of people asked me "What is a pop up shop?". Simply put a pop up shop refers to the short-term duration of the store(s), which appear one day and are gone the next.
The goal of BGS is to one day have a brick and mortar shop but until then we will focus on finding really great products for you online and become involved in as many pop up shops as possible. Our first one took place in Lowell, Ma in the coolest spot called Mill No.5 (http://www.millnumberfive.com). All the folks there were really great and made the day a huge success. Below are a few images from the event...
That was our first shop. We learned a ton and can't wait for the next. Keep checking back for our next day and location not to mention a workshop or two.

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.
