Mohawk General Store Holiday Market

The good folks at Los Angeles's Mohawk General Store have a holiday market located just two doors from their main storefront (profiled in our "To Live and Buy in L.A." story from the April 2011 issue of Dwell). The designs—ranging from ceramics to furniture to lighting—are a mix of vintage finds and new pieces from local artisans; everything is made in the USA. Owner Kevin Carney says the best way to see what's new in the pop-up is to follow them on Instagram and look for images tagged with #mohawkholidaymarket, but in the meantime, flip though our slideshow for a taste of what's on their menu. The shop is located at 4017 West Sunset Boulevard and is open from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. seven days a week until January 5. On Friday, November 30, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Mohawk is hosting an opening party, so stop on over to shop, have a drink, and meet the craftspeople.

The Corner Store, San Francisco

Tiring of the Prohibition-era style pervasive in San Francisco's bars and restaurants, the owners and design team behind recently opened The Corner Store opted to channel "something more in tune with the happy, hopeful, and welcoming vibe of a 1950s community corner store and soda shop—minus the kitsch and cliche of a typical diner," says Clinton Miller, the project's architect. Located on Masonic at Geary, right above the Geary underpass, the restaurant is a welcome addition to the neighborhood with a menu that tastes as good as the interior looks (be sure not to miss the house burger with bacon jam). "I wanted to create a light airy interior where someone could just as easily sit and enjoy the classic food with a homemade soda at lunch or a boozy milkshake after a nice long dinner," says Miller.

Webshop to Watch: Son & Dotter

Son & Dotter, a new webshop launched in September by Sabrina Bello, aims to bring hard-to-find Scandinavian designs to the U.S. market. Included in their growing roster are brands like HAY and A2, a manufacturer we've featured before but whose products weren't available stateside. We sent a few questions to Bello to find out how her store came to be and what to expect in the near future.
