The New England landscape has lots to offer when it comes to outdoor activities like camping, and we like to take advantage of that. When we head out into the wilderness, we don't pack a lot. Our motto is take what you need and leave the rest. 

In this blog, we talk about why it's important to enjoy the wilderness and how to do it with the best tools and accessories we've found from around the world. 

P.F. Candle Co. was one of Boston General Store's first makers to promote when the website first launched in 2013. Today, we still carry their line of impressive, hand-crafted soy wax candles and reed diffusers because they're one of our best sellers. 

In this blog, we remind readers of the honest brand that is P.F. Candle Co., and introduce their newest venture: incense sticks. 

Spring cleaning is a necessary evil for anyone who wants to keep their home happy and healthy. And that means it comes around every year, much like the spring blossoms, whether we like it or not. 

In this blog, we give our best advice on managing your annual mass cleanup and the best tools and tricks to ensure you're covering every aspect of this complex project. 

There comes a moment when keeping good news to yourself is impossible. And because we're ready to burst at the seams, literally and figuratively, we'll cut to the chase. Boston General Store is growing.

In this blog, we make our official announcement that we're opening a second permanent location in a town that shares a border and a rich history with Boston. 


People tend to expect the same gifts every year when they're unpacking their stocking stuffers. This year, give them something new and exciting when they're ripping off the wrapping. 

In this blog, we give you a the ideal list of small gifts that are made well and all priced under twenty-five dollars. 

One of the biggest dreams we had for Boston General Store was to eventually begin crafting our own well-made products, alongside the wonderful catalog of makers we've discovered over the years. 

In this blog, we celebrate becoming a member of the maker community and introduce our own handcrafted soy wax candle scented to evoke the spirit of New England.

Organizing and hosting a Thanksgiving dinner takes a lot of planning and preparation. If not done carefully, this elaborate event can end up being exhaustive and disastrous. 

In this blog, I recount some of my favorite holiday memories and give you the best advice on how to successfully, and effectively, host a Thanksgiving dinner. Plus, I'm passing on some of my family's recipes that you can prepare the night before.


Don't plan out a Thanksgiving dinner menu that you know is too complicated and doesn't lend itself well to effective kitchen practices. Choose recipes that can be made ahead of time and that don't have hard-to-find ingredients. 

In this blog, we give the readers a handful of helpful and delicious family recipes for Thanksgiving side dishes, accompaniments, and desserts that are easy to make.

Just about a year ago, when the Boston General Store was opening in Brookline's Coolidge Corner, there was a certain sense of uncertainty during the shop's inaugural days. Long nights of restlessness rotated like the Earth eventually turning into long days of distracted deliberation.

It wasn't that we grew skeptical of our vision. The ideal that folks needed an outlet to buy honest, well-made, long-lasting products is what drove us to expand from an unassuming online store, and it hadn't faltered in any way.

With the cost of disposable shaving products steadily rising while their quality continues to be cut down, why not consider switching to a long-lasting alternative? 

In this blog, we introduce readers to the safety razor, a money-saving throwback razor made of stainless steel that your fathers and grandfathers once used.
