For the ultimate in beautifully minimalist shopping, head to Erin Wade’s Modern General, a retail experience for the chic gardening set. The shop stocks bulk foods like flour, ancient grains, and sugar, as well as household items like dish soap, gardening apparatuses, tools, kitchen utensils, and condiments. While the selection may seem large, Erin Wade has done the decision making for you by selecting the best choice for each. Buy a hammer from Modern General, and you can be sure it is the best available hammer. THis frees you up to make more important decisions, like where to have lunch (hint: Wade’s own Vinaigrette, right next door).
