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 husband Phil, moved up on the ridge in the Burton House, she had to decided to either close up shop or go store front 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 in to 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 experiences in their field.  Which include, Sarah The Red Beauty Salon (Master Stylist), Vanessa \ 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".
