Catalyst: A Creative Industries Podcast

Oct 29, 2018

We’ve all been there. You are on a trip, you have a finite amount of time and money, but souvenirs are expected and so this keychain of a cartoon pig on a Ferris Wheel will have to do. But what if you actually found a place that highlighted local artists and artisans from the city you were visiting. What if the things in that shop were affordable. What if that shop felt welcoming and curated to your wants and needs? Well that is what MaryAnne LoVerme wanted too.

Hosts Taryn Stoop and Shannon Halverson-Gorajia visit the Los Angeles County Store to speak with MaryAnne about her past lives as a school teacher and working at the Etsy Corporate, before she made the leap out west and opened her own store.  Find out what advice this shop owner prizes, and how this location became an intimate and contributing part of the surrounding community.
