Monya Claborn moved her video production company, Cornerstone Entertainment, to downtown Athens over a year ago into a historic building at 108 West Market Street. Working downtown, Monya quickly fell in love with the quaint shops located throughout the historic district. Realizing she had the square footage, she recently ventured into retail by opening Claborn Specialities in the front of the building.
The concept behind is simple. It’s a little of all the things Monya loves for herself and grandchildren. With home decor, gifts, art, women’s accessories, and fine children clothing, Claborn Specialities offers the shopper a diverse and quality inventory in a relaxed setting.
“I don’t want to compete, but rather complement existing businesses,” said Claborn. “I want to provide a nice variety in a boutique atmosphere.”
Claborn Specialities is open Monday-Friday from 9 AM-5 PM.
