Templeton General: Find Quality Home Decor Near Waterside Place
Inspired by the old-fashioned country general store in her central Massachusetts hometown, Laura Sabolefski opened Templeton General in Boston in 2014. While the original general store was a place to pick up seeds, staples, and other supplies needed to run farms and households in the countryside, today Sabolefski's Templeton General focuses on beautiful housewares, home decor, and textiles.
Think of it as a one stop shop for the things that you never knew you always needed. Walk into the impeccably designed sales space and examine an array of rustic linen napkins, or pick up a few ceramic vases to fill up with fresh flowers for your next dinner party. While you're at it, sign up for the flower CSA that is hosted in-store. Alternatively, freshen up your bathroom with a new bathmat and lavender-scented soaps and lotions. The shop rounds out its offerings with regular workshops, led by Sabolefski, on topics like calligraphy, terrarium design, knitting, weaving, and more.
