Local Inspiring Mom: Katie Martin

Tell us about yourself.

1. What does a typical day look like for you?

Because it’s summer there is no typical day, it’s pure chaos. If I’m not up at the studio packaging orders, I’m in my house studio sewing. Along with whatever the kid’s camp is of the week, gymnastics and basketball… we stay busy.

2. What is your favorite local shop?

There’s no way I can just pick one. So I’ll narrow down to my top favorites…. Owl & Drum, Retro Den, Generations Antique Mall and I can’t forget the Saturday morning Flea Market at the Expo. I’m a midtown girl through and through.

Tacos Fiesta Mexicana — the taco truck parked at 11th between Harvard and Lewis. Chicken street tacos. Best ever.

4. What is your favorite play spot to take your kids?

We usually go to our neighborhood school playground. There’s a track for their bikes which is an added bonus.

    Daven Tackett - I am so glad to hear your story about your business! I just went into Owl & Drum for the first time, 2 weeks ago and learned about them! Local business in Tulsa is flourishing right now! It makes me sooo happy because family business is close to my heart. My family organizes the JBF sale at the Expo and we live in the Renaissance Neighborhood. I think our families would love these items and Owl & Drum items too! I would like to post on our FB page about your businesses. Would this be allowed? daven@jbfsale.comReplyCancel
