It is Liza Dunning’s job to seek out unique products. She’s one of the founders of Scoutmob, the Atlanta-based startup known for mobile deals, now in thirteen cities. As “editor in chiefness,” she helped develop the company’s quirky voice and mustached image. With last summer’s launch of Scoutmob Shoppe, an e-commerce marketplace for indie craftsmen and designers, her latest role is shop curator. She’s currently focusing on home goods, which often end up in her own Cabbagetown abode. “I like all my things to have a story,” she says, “whether they had a past life or I know the person who created them.”
