Shopper’s Diary: Drake Hotel General Store in Toronto

Julie Carlson November 16, 2011

Since opening in 2008, the Drake Hotel General Store (there are now two additional outposts of the shop) in Toronto has "played with the notion of taking the traditional hotel gift shop and reimagining it in a contemporary and varied urban context." The owners take inspiration from the classic general store, the museum shop, and the flea-market stand; to see the offerings, go to the Drake Hotel General Store.

Above: Each of the Drake outposts feature a neon purple cross that was modeled after the styling of European pharmacies; "it acts as a beacon, letting guests know that they’ve arrived at our cultural crossroads."

Above L: On the Road Flask made of leather and metal; $36 CAD. Above R: Petit Cafe Cup; $20 CAD.
