Curated eclectic goods
From the whimsical to the practical and everything in between!
Our online shop is always open and our new Hastings 'bricks and mortar' store opens in October 2021!
Here at The Gen, you'll find a well-curated selection of artful gifts, books, cards, tasty treats, fun stuff for kids, home and lifestyle items, iconic Hastings gear and so much more!
the general story
Inspired by a rich local history, owners Trish and Jo have created a diverse, inclusive community hub, which is reflected in both the store design and a thoughtfully curated collection of goods.
