One of L.A.’s best stores for locally made goods and gifts is celebrating its four-year anniversary this May. Silver Lake’s Los Angeles County Store, where everything is hand-made in the Los Angeles area, is throwing a party on Saturday, May 5 from noon to 4 p.m. Festivities include refreshments and a pop-up shop featuring from Plume and Pulp stationery, We Felt Things felted monsters and plants, Marly Beyer art prints, Lady Angeles balms, and Sanctuary Ceramics.
Los Angeles County Store owner MaryAnne LoVerme said she started the store to “help people making things in L.A. in a really practical way.”
“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,” LoVerme said via a release. “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.”
Inside the shop, one might find books, toys, housewares, stationery, totes, art, jewelry, food, and other items. This might include soy candles from PF Candle Company, jam from Sqirl, Letterpress Chocolate bars, No Tox Life and Bare Bones bath and body products, Buzzed Honeys, and more.
Los Angeles County Store is located at 4333 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA.
