Inspiration, as any artist will tell you, can come from anywhere, but to find it in a store is a rare and beautiful thing. At the third outpost of the Drake Hotel General Store, inspiration seems to comes from everywhere. Stock includes a mix of the vintage (including a cookbook for “caravanners”) and the new (Shared T-shirts with exclusive “magic” prints). Look also for Fortnight lingerie made in Toronto, jewellery by In God We Trust and pretty, shiny pinatas. Yep, you heard us.
