Los Angeles County Store Celebrates Fourth Anniversary
LOS ANGELES, Calif. – April, 2017– Los Angeles County can present a challenge for those looking to uncover creative finds from local artisans. MaryAnne LoVerme made it a lot easier when she opened Los Angeles County Store in May of 2014. This May marks the shop’s fourth anniversary.
When the shop opened four years ago, “I wanted to help people who are making things in L.A. in a really practical way," says LoVerme. “Los Angeles has a long history of manufacturing and innovation, but when I moved here I found there was not a shop that was specifically devoted to this. Our mission has since the beginning been to support local makers and make it easy for people who love to shop local to do so year-round.”
To this end, Los Angeles County Store offers goods ranging from small housewares to artisanal foods to jewelry and other one-of-a-kind local wares, all of which is made exclusively within Los Angeles County. The shop is tucked in a Silver Lake strip mall on Sunset Boulevard.
Screen printed pouches and pillows by Stacy Michelson, jam from Laura Ann’s Jams, and candles by PF Candle Co are some of the finds available in the shop. The store hosts weekly pop-up events that highlight local crafters, and a monthly art opening celebrating a local artist. These events are designed to “help people take pride in their city and realize just how many amazing things are made in Los Angeles,” LoVerme says
The fourth anniversary celebration will take place on Saturday May 5 from 12-4pm and will included a pop-up shop featuring Plume and Pulp Stationery, We Felt Things, Marly Beyer art prints, Lady Angeles balms, and Sanctuary Ceramics. “There will be other fun stuff throughout the day as well,” LoVerme says. Stop by to shop and enjoy treats, beverages, and other surprises throughout the anniversary weekend.
