The Wait Is Over

Mandy Kellogg Rye brings happy vibes to Vinings with Waiting on Martha Home. 


ATL’s own Mandy Kellogg Rye, creator of uberpopular Insta-blog Waiting on Martha (@waitingonmartha), has been blessing our feeds with poised pics of her travels, treats, styled threads and blond tresses since launching the lifestyle brand in 2012, and now, the city’s shop-happy can peruse Rye’s curated collection of goodies at the brand-new Waiting on Martha Home brick-and-mortar. After playing around with pop-ups, Rye decided to commit to the A with a warm and welcoming setup in Vinings, where everyone is greeted with a cold drink or hot coffee from the in-store beverage bar. Says Rye of the store’s atmosphere, “I’ve tried and tried for months to properly describe the aesthetic of the store and everything in it, and what I’ve found is that my customers always seem to sum it up perfectly for me: happy.” From colorful dinnerware collections to custom furniture and lighting to on-trend home trimmings, Rye says: “It will take at least 20 minutes to do one full lap around the store, with most saying they need at least two go-rounds to take it all in!” Anyone up for a shopping spree? @shopwaitingonmartha
