Deadstock General Store

A collection of useful and interesting things; a carefully hand picked selection of “fancy goods”. Opposite to what the name suggests, the store isn’t really general at all. It’s a little like stepping into an edition of Monocle Magazine and being surrounded by all the things you wish you had. The owner, Liam, has crafted a balance between the useful and the beautiful with every thought for material, design and sustainability – mixing more familiar brands like Kinto from Japan or P.F. Candle Co. with more obscure finds. The perfect place to find a gift nobody else will be giving.

A treasure trove of one of a kind pieces.
