The Good Liver began life in 2014 as an online shop selling functional household goods, and quickly expanded to a physical store located towards the southern end of Los Angeles’ Arts District. Storytelling is an essential part of the retail experience: each item on display features a placard tracing its origins. There are normally some 600 objects for sale, often hand-crafted and sourced from long-established artisanal business in Europe, North America and Japan, all showcased on oak shelves and in cabinets designed by store owner Bert Youn himself.
