A bit of South America in Shreveport: Macondo, corner Youree and Ockley

Janine Demerath is the proprietor of the clothing and jewelry shop callled Macondo. She is a Peruvian American who teaches Spanish for LSU and Centenary College. Her husband is Centenary prof Loren Demerath; he can often be seen walking their 2 children to school at Montessori of Shreveport.

Her shop has been stocked with heart and soul. She truly sees it as symbolic of the folk side of South America.

You may write an essay of description on Macondo for indie work. It is part of the Mattress Shop across Youree from AC Steere.
