It was another crazy fun day over here at the General Store– especially thanks to these fun girls. Sabrina (in the middle) called a few times this afternoon confirming we had Bananasavers in stock– and YES, of course we did. These lovely ladies were on a hunt for them and drove all over Manhattan looking for them (they were soo excited, they asked me to take their picture!). Luckily, thanks to asking around and google, they found us and they bought almost our whole stash (don’t worry, we will reorder tmrw). I carry mine everywhere and it is literally one of the most asked about products in the shop. Get one (or 10 or 20!) for yourself! Bananasavers (with carabiners)- $8.

Our fun & functional iCords are in this months Woman’s Day Magazine- Yayy!!! I bought one of these straight away as my iPhone charging cord looked like it was a major fire hazard (wires always seem to fray near plug, seems like a major design flaw in Apple’s otherwise amazing systems). Loving this bright green color too- perfect way to “warm” up during the cold winter months. iCords- $20 each.

I carry our Banana Saver every day and use it constantly. It seriously hold ( and protects) every size and shape banana I’ve ever put in there. Nothing drives me bonkers like a bruised banana. Coco loves bananas, I love bananas and of course my Big Gorilla is bananas for bananas. Lately I’ve noticed a crazy phenomenon though: strangers stop me on the street and ask me where I got it, friends demand I sell them mine, out of town friends (most recently from Turkey) text me to say WE NEED BANANA SAVER! Or more correctly, two. Most people seem to buy them in pairs, maybe to give one to a friend who would also appreciate it? Anyway, get yours now! Banana Savers- $6.

My love for inanimate objects keeps growing–the latest item I am smitten with is this Stainless Steel Ice Pack. It’s slim enough (about the size of an iphone) to fit into our Stainless Steel Lunch Containers (which by the way are airtight and very cool looking and compact), but also super helpful on many levels. As a mom, I am now always in need of ice packs to keep little Cocobeans’ bottles and food cold while we are out & about, so am thrilled to find these. Stainless Steel Ice Pack- $15.
Tags: LED Lantern
Talk about a fun and functional item! This LED Lantern has a classic and super rustic design, but runs on batteries and can be used both inside and out. Whether you’re going camping for the weekend, just getting prepared for a possible power outage, or are hoping to bring some prairie charm to your city flat, you’ve gotta check this puppy out. Bonus design element: a reflector is positioned above the LEDs to cast the light evenly in every direction. See fun and functional! LED Lantern – $15.00

Going any place cool this summer? One of our favorite customers’ is– she’s on her way to Croatia as I write this! Donna Tirp is a special friend, old neighbor and great customer (her husband was our first sale- a gift certificate for his wife, via the phone since they lived in Ohio at the time). She is also a fun shopper & has excellent taste and loads up on great goodies online & in person when visiting from Cali. She sent me this pic this morning of her In Flight Bag stuffed for an exciting trip to the Island of Krk. These bags rock (I got one as a present and loved it so much I had to get them for the shop…) TSA approved for toiletries, easy to see everything, well priced- LOAD UP! I keep mine packed and ready to go so I am always ready for last minute excursions. In Flight Bags- $8.50.

I’m totally obsessed with this Market Tote- there are so many things to love: the Woven Palm Leaves durable texture, the supple leather trim made for lazy summer days, the 2 sets of handles: one long, one short- to be carried over the shoulder or in your hands… it’s the perfect combination of fabulousness. Double Handle Market Tote- $40.

Tags: Atlas of Remote Islands
This wonderful book is for travelers, adventurers, lovers of esoteric facts, and anyone who’s ever contemplated the one album they would take with them to a desert island. (BTW, I’d take Van Morrison’s Astral Weeks.) Subtitled “Fifty Islands I Have Never Set Food on and Never Will” – the Atlas of Remote Islands is filled with fascinating facts, astounding tales of survival and exploration, and beautiful maps (so beautiful in fact that it won a German prize for most beautiful book!). Get it while you can, and while you’re at it, let us know which album you’d take to a desert island! Atlas of Remote Islands – $30.00.
