about the shop
We sell beautiful, sustainable, useful goods for the home and body, inspired by the past.
Natural materials. Zero waste. North America-made and sold.
Heirloom General aims to inspire and support individuals seeking earth-friendly products and low impact lifestyles. The shop has a mix of new and secondhand items. We believe it is important to buy secondhand as often as you can, and that any new items you purchase be sustainably packaged and produced. We are passionate about organic ingredients, natural materials, handmade products, and items produced as close to home as possible.
For that reason, most of our items are made in North America, and we ship only throughout North America as well (Canada and Mexico coming soon).
We are based in Minneapolis, Minnesota and are currently a web-only store, with a pick-up option for local folks. See more on our Policies page.
