about us

For over a decade, my grandmother Harriet Harrell managed the UNICEF shop in Carmel, a town she lived in for forty years. From the age of 8-18, I spent a month every summer with Harriet. You have to know a bit more about Harriet to understand why that time is so significant to the story of Harriet’s General.

This is not a sweet Grandmother story. Harriet was an American original. She was also formidable...

how it all got started 


My favorite place to stop while in Culpeper. All the products are unique, high quality and made in America. The owners were very helpful when I ordered boots for my husband and the staff are very friendly and always have neat suggestions. I always stop here for little gifts for others but rarely leave without something for myself. 

Eclectic and funky store full of high quality items made in the USA. From cards and stationery to Frye shoes and bar accoutrements Harriet's has a full assortment of gifts, quirky tchotchkes and ethically made clothing. Definitely a must visit! 

Great customer service. I received a pair of nice leather gloves for Christmas from this store and they had a defect. I live far away from Culpeper so couldn't just go return them. They said to just ship them back and they exchanged them quite promptly, even paid for postage on the way back to me.

This is my go to store when looking for gifts for friends and family. I am always able to find something unique and individualistic. An added benefit is that everything is made in America. If you go in there and need some help, be sure to ask the owners, they know their inventory an are able to point me in the right direction.

i pulled off the 29 and was so happy to discover this treasure of a shop. all of the wares...gifts, home decor, jewelry, paper and clothing...are beautifully curated and displayed, an alchemy of quality, americana and quirkiness. i wanted it all. i live in lynchburg and will definitely be back to culpeper for lunch and some shopping soon.

Easily the coolest place on Davis Street, they have a little bit of everything and it's awesome that all of it is made in America

Love everything about this American-made shop, from the unique jewelry pieces to the timeless toys. I especially love the clothing and the AngelRox the most.
