I WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE....MARTHA OF AUTHENTICA CLASSICS
I met Martha when she found me through my blog giveaway, we chatted(virtually) and I immediately became a fan of hers. I admired her passion for creating an authentic product line. And she is a southern belle, I mean I have more friends in the south than I know in Jersey. lol Of course, I had to invite her to be a part of this giveaway because I knew all of my readers/friends would love her style. It must be something about the name Martha, that just makes you talented & fabulous. She is the Karl Lagerfeld of grainsack pillows and has an amazing eye for vintage. I dont think I need to say anymore because here is Martha herself..................
Hi Pickers, Junkers and Vintique Lovers!
I'm an 8th generation Georgian...you know we Southerners are proud of our heritage! I attended the University of Georgia and graduated in the early 80's with a degree in Journalism - Public Relations.
After working in the corporate world, trying to be the "super mom", I decided to be a stay at home mom to my two little boys.
We moved from the busy suburbs of Atlanta to a tourist area in rural North Georgia. I started a small decorating business in 1995, working out of my home, specializing in textile designs.
Mixing fabrics, textures, and colors has always been a love of mine. I used a professional decorator workroom, and enjoyed designing window treatments, bedding, pillows and more!
In 2002, I put the business on hold for a while due to family needs and as of 2010 have re-opened my business, adding more focus on retailing vintage and antique finds as well as re-purposed creations!
I am the kind of person that believes less is more and would rather have one really nice purse than 12 of lesser quality. I've never been fond of knock offs or reproductions and am always on the look out for authentic pieces.
It is important to me in my business that no matter what I am working with, it be authentic. Just about anything you find from the past, is better quality and usually a classic! That's how I came up with my business name, Authentica Classics!
I started a line of European and American grain sack pillows and other decorator textile items, as well as plans for canvas and paper art, found art work and down the road, a funky lighting line. But for now, as I grow, pillows and vintage finds fill my days!
I want people to know that my business name represents what I sell....quality, classic items that are the real thing!
My love of gifts from the past, keeps me on the hunt for all sorts of treasures to share with others! That is what brings me joy!
Stay tuned...you just never know what will show up on my blog or facebook page! I plan on sharing my journey with you, all my bumps and bruises as well as my celebrations! Hope to see you there!
Live your Authentic Life! Be Real!
