we use these glasses every day for everything! from every kind of wine, to water with or without sparkle, to a single flower or little bouquet, to a row of votives for the table... artisanal, hand blown glass feels good in your hands and looks at home in a traditional tablesetting or outside on a picnic table ... set of 6 for $48 at our online shop...www.thenewgeneralstore.com

it was a sad day when it was torn down and replaced with a chain gas station.
i remember this as a center of our community, a place where neighbors gathered, news shared, a place that kids went to when ice cream was a treat...this is the spirit of the new general store, where friends and neighbors gather a couple of times a year to have lunch or a cup of cider, to gather by the river and watch the swans in spring, or by the fire in fall to catch up on what's happening...a place to see old friends and meet new ones. and its also a place to be in touch on line with our events, local products for sale, and a way to connect.
we hope you'll follow us at the new general store on long island!

using recycled industrial materials and new electrical fittings, a Texan designer created a collection of lights that are great for a loft or farmhouse!
we also have the perfect stainless overscaled lantern, and a black wrought iron chandelier for those who love candlelight...
