If you've been longing for the timeless kitchen and home goods stocked on the shelves of Labour and Wait in East London but aren't in the UK (and thus can't have them shipped to you), Brook Farm General Store is for you. Based in Brooklyn, New York, the shop opened in June 2009 as a "modern, one-stop general store for our neighborhood," owners Philippa Content and Christopher Winterbourne say.
Like Labour and Wait, Brook Farm General Store carries classic items for the home, like stoneware pitchers, wooden bottle brushes, and porcelain soap dishes. "We carry a wide and ever-changing range of new and vintage items from home accessories to jewelry to camping gear, but we tend to lean toward clean, simple classics that are well-crated and will last for many years," they say. Unlike their British counterpart, however, Brook Farm General Store ships anywhere in the world.
We asked Content and Winterbourne to select their favorite items in the store, and you can view their top picks in our slideshow.
