Carla Brakensiek

Carla moved to Marthasville 15 years ago and started Catala out of her home. Her business quickly outgrew her space and 10 years ago moved to a 114-year-old Marthasville house.

When she and her husband Phil, moved up on the ridge in the Burton House, she had to decide to either close-up shop or go storefront in New Melle. That was almost 7 years ago in November.

Today Catala Boutique & Facial retreat Spa-Tique is a thriving small business in a refurbished cottage in the heart of New Melle. What started as a simple shop has grown into a "House of All About You".  The House of Catala offers a full-service boutique and spa with professionals that have 15-20 years of experience in their field.


Which include, Sarah of The Red Beauty Salon (Master Stylist), Vanessa of Massage Kneads our fantastic massage therapist & Amy of Renew You Nurse injector.


Carla's vision is to "welcome all, make anyone that walks in the door feel at home…I want people to feel invited to the party ALWAYS….girl gang, men's gift-giving headquarters".
