When you say “general store,” you’d imagine a quaint little store in a small town that sells a wide variety of goods, from household products like soap and brooms, to clothes and a bit of furniture.

Well, there’s a new type of general store that we stumbled upon, and it’s like a general store reinterpreted for Gen Y. Frankie & Friends General Store at SM Aura is much like that type of shop, but done in a more stylish way. The store is a brick-and-mortar venue for small, local brands to sell in, and to help expose them to the bigger, mall-going market, aside from having an online presence. The items run the gamut from dinnerware and linen to snacks, small beauty products, and beautiful wicker chairs.

It’s a delightfully designed, Instagram-worthy shop, with a clean aesthetic of all-white walls, Scandinavian-pale wood shelves and pegboards, blush pink cushions, and a spot at the back where you can sit down and have a cup of coffee (or post your photos). Here are some of our favorite finds:

Fabric art, macramé, and hand-dyed clothes (for babies and adults alike) from Tala Workshop.

Subtle but delicious reed diffuser and room spray scents in Clean, Coffee, and Olive from Bare MNL.


Gin and tonic plus spice boxed sets from SpiceTonic.ph (a great gift for Christmas).

Cute, candy-colored Buddy Gaiwan tea sets that let you brew and drink from the lid.


And don’t leave the store without having a cuppa from Third Swell!
