The shop is beautiful and quite "Zen". With no cluttered displays, they only showcase a few choice items. You're not bombarded with a million different items, but presented with a handful of carefully selected pieces and they are all so visually stunning!
No kidding! When you walk in, you immediately get a sense of "Ahhhhhhhhh". Not only are the folks at North Channel General quite possibly the loveliest people around, but the shop itself makes you feel like all your stress and worries are melted away...even if momentarily. It really does remind me of the shops I used to frequent when I worked and lived in Japan. The space is "clean" (as in uncluttered) and visually peaceful. You definitely get that feeling in this store.
Some of the items North Channel General carries are:
Stylish and classic items like this Saint James piece
Noda Horo's "Tsuki Usagi Jirushi" (Moom and Rabbit series) enamel pot
North Channel General also sells artwork from local artists like Jack Whyte and Ann Beam.
Among my favourites are the wicker bags. They're perfect for a day at the beach. The photo does not do the product any justice. My 4 year old daughter wanted to play the budding photographer and snapped this shot while we were at the beach. Bag seen in background.
North Channel General is also on Facebook. Visit the North Channel General FB page and check out all their fabulous items.
