A New Face at Our Place: Marikay

July 30, 2021

Please welcome Marikay, who joined our staff at the end of May. She might be new to the Traveler, but the Traveler certainly isn't new to her. Marikay has been coming here since she was 12 years old!

The store has always been a magical place for her. "As a child, I thought it was so special that it was in a house, and everyone was so friendly. We always stopped for lunch in the café, and I always got the sampler sandwich plate. Even though things change over time to keep up with what's new, the things that always drew people here stay the same."

She even told her mom, "Someday, I'm going to work at Little Travelers." We're so happy her childhood prediction came true! You'll usually find Marikay in our Fair Trade+ Gallery, but she also helps out in other rooms around the store. She loves working in the Fair Trade+ Gallery because of the different countries represented as well as the mission of Fair Trade to provide a source of income for families in need.

One more thing you should know about Marikay is that because of her many years spent exploring The Little Traveler, she's our very own "Human GPS." Not sure how to get to where you want to go? Stop by and ask Marikay---she'll tell you the best route.
