Out and About: Drake General Store Pop Up

Crazy Style Love

 

A couple weeks ago, I had the pleasure of being Jane’s plus-one to the opening of the Drake General Store pop up located in Hudson’s Bay in Toronto.  For those of you non-locals, the Drake General Store is the “gift shop” for the uber-cool Drake Hotel.  I put “gift shop” in quotations because this is no ordinary hotel “gift shop”.  The Drake General Store pulls inspiration from a general store, a museum shop and a flea market to create a unique destination for classic and modern goodies.  Much of the merchandise represents Canada’s eclectic heritage, along with global treasures and occasional rare antiques.

 

Below are a few photos from the pop up store, and also some of my favourite in-shop items.  I pretty much want all of these things for myself, but they all make great gift ideas too!  How fun is that spice shaker set and the scratch map?!  I’ll definitely be purchasing those two items soon! (You can click on each item for more details.)

    I’ve passed by the store location on Bathurst about a hundred times – I’ve always been intrigued but never popped in. Now I have too!!
