Small Business Spotlight

Today’s episode of the Beyond Bourbon Street podcast is all about shopping local in New Orleans. It was inspired by Small Business Saturday and a desire to support some of the wonderful makers and business owners in the New Orleans.

Have you ever wanted to purchase something to remind you of your visit to New Orleans? Are you looking for a gift for the holidays? Do you live in New Orleans and simply want to ‘buy local?’

In today’s episode, we highlight three New Orleans small business owners.  Join me as I sit down with Liz Maute Cook of Lionheart Prints, Kristin Malone of Home Malone, and Patti Dunn of Tchoup Industries. We learn their stories and listen as they share their view of New Orleans.

Along the way, you’ll not only meet three wonderful people, but you’ll get a great list of New Orleans businesses to support during Small Business Saturday and beyond!

Get your pen and paper, or your electronic notepad ready…..

All this and more on today’s show!



Lionheart Prints |3312 Magazine St, New Orleans, LA – Visit Liz Maute Cook’s fun shop to find a great selection of hand-lettered cards, and other products including collaborations with New Orleans artists. I’m loving my Who’s Your Crawdaddy t-shirt! Be sure to say hi to Ross the press man, too!

Lionheart is located just downtown of Louisiana Avenue, and is in a great location with many other small businesses and places to eat and drink. The shop is easily accessible via the (green) St. Charles Avenue Streetcar.

Home Malone |629 N Carrollton Ave, New Orleans, LA – Home Malone is Kristin Malone’s wonderful shop on Carrollton Avenue in Midcity.

Housed in one-half of a shotgun home converted for retail, Home Alone is full of gifts and artwork by makers from across the Deep South.  The shop also hosts regular Paint Parties and other Special Events.

Home Malone celebrated their one-year anniversary in November 2017 and was voted as one of the best new retail stores in New Orleans in the Gambit New Orleans poll.

Take the (red) Canal Street streetcar from downtown. Hop off a couple blocks early and enjoy a cannoli at Angelo Brocato’s. You could easily make an afternoon or an entire day exploring Midcity and nearby City Park, as we talked about during the podcast.

Tchoup Industries | 1115 St Mary St, New Orleans, LA – Visit Patti Dunn at her shop just off Magazine Street. Behind the small retail area you’ll find makers busily cutting and sewing their one-of-a-kind bags in all sizes, colors and materials.
