Shopper’s Diary: New at the General Store in San Francisco

October 7, 2010

On a recent visit to the General Store in the Outer Sunset neighborhood of San Francisco, I was taken by "the bits of everything useful" collected by Serena Mittnik-Miller and Mason St. Peter—including new and vintage goods (many sourced from local artisans and craftspeople), clothing, books, and other finds; the current selection of tools and accessories for the office are especially appealing.
