Lorraine - Curious Egg Portrait for web_preview.jpeg

This week we’re chatting with Lorraine Aaron, founder of the online home goods shop, Curious Egg, based in Scotland.  The name of her shop suits her perfectly because it’s her curiosity that has driven her success.  Lorraine wants to know the stories behind the objects people create that we then bring into our homes.  And she has traveled extensively to find them for her shop.  She talks about her passion for creating truly unique homes, through artwork, by displaying personal objects in interesting ways, and by treating our outdoor spaces as opportunities to surprise and delight us.  Be sure to check out the show notes page for this episode for links to the places she describes... you'll love seeing what she's talking about!  We start by asking Lorraine about her background as a creator of public art works.
