DELISH GENERAL STORE
Sundries and wares, curated and created.
DGS began as an extension of Delish Magazine (www.delishmag.com), a free e-mag that ran for seven glorious issues. The publication and later the shop came about as an extension of what its creators believe in, traditional values in a modern mindset. Both developed into a way to: celebrate the revival of the hand made and home grown, extol the virtues of getting your hands dirty, and pass on knowledge, recipes, techniques and the pioneering spirit.
At the helm as e-shopkeeper and proprietor is broadcast, print and web journalist Tamara Komuniecki, who describes herself as "Independent, adventurous, impatient, Arthritic. Journalist, bon vivant and eager but imperfect homemaker." She's been discovering and reporting on cool things for almost 20 years for outlets like CBC Radio and TV, CKUA Radio, the Globe and Mail, Better Homes and Gardens and City TV, and is now getting around to sharing them.
Her silent partner lurks in the shadows, opens the wine bottles, whispers suggestions and builds killer spreadsheets.
Delish General Store is a true mom & pop [online] shop based in Edgemont Village, North Vancouver, BC, and mom and pop (aka Mama and Papa) are proud to have built and continually add to a wide range of hard-to-find, didn't-know-I-needed-this-until-I-found-it, hip, handy and heritage-inspired products.
