The Origin Of Augusta Rose

Augusta Rose was established in 2019 by Mariel Braid.  At the age of 15 she began working at an antique consignment store.  There she quickly realized her love and passion for all things retail. She honed her skills over the next thirteen years studying art, design, and business. In 2019  she launched Augusta Rose.  A life long dream come true.  Her goal is to combine art and business to make her store a place where others feel welcomed and surrounded by beauty, creativity, positivity, and happiness while they partake in some retail therapy.

Choosing The Name Augusta Rose

Augusta is Mariel's middle name and was also her great grandmother's name on her father's side.  The Rose was added because she loves all things floral and knew she needed something in the name that would allow her to use a floral motif for branding.
About a year after she created her LLC. Augusta Rose she discovered her great grandmother's name on her Mother's side was Rose, making her new venture feel like fate!
