Part hotel gift shop, part general store, the Drake General Store is adjacent to Toronto’s boutique Drake Hotel. I was very happy to see a well fleshed-out stock of Monocle products. My favourite items were the Cross Enamelware Oslo bowls which were a fair price for the quality. Their $35 succulents, however, were a little ludicrously priced. Most pleasant surprise? Their children’s clothing, which was by Arborist.
