Now, we’re sure that you’ve done your Mother’s Day shopping already. You’d never leave something so important until the last week, right? Of course you wouldn’t! So think of these as *ahem* additional Mother’s Day gifts, a little extra thank-you.
These items were selected by Kate Shrewsbury, owner of Harriet’s General in Culpeper. This Piedmont gem’s shelves are teeming with eclectic, 100% American-made apparel, home furnishings, all of it bespoke, semi-bohemian, and wildly authentic.
The story behind Harriet’s General is special to Mother’s Day. Shrewsbury’s grandmother is the namesake of the store. A snappy dresser with a cinematic smile and entrepreneurial spirit, Harriet’s charisma permeates the store’s “classic American cool” style. Why not knock out some Father’s Day shopping while you’re there?
