The Story Behind The Decor
About Tahlulas Treasures:
Tahlulas Treasures was founded in 2013 out of the love of wonderful family memories while vacationing on Long Beach Island, NJ for the past 30 years. The Jersey Shore is a place that holds many special memories she calls treasures, that are near and dear to her heart.
Sharon was born and raised a Jersey Girl and was lucky enough to live and still does so close to the Jersey Shore. She has always had a love of creating, and as a part-time art teacher, she felt it was natural to turn her love of the sea into coastal treasures. She began by selling her artwork at home parties. With the encouragement of family and friends, and lots of hard work, she began Tahlulas Treasures. Tahlula is the nickname Sharon called her youngest child, Jena.
Today, Sharon has a workshop in her home where she creates signs, ornaments, driftwood trees, mermaids and more, incorporating natural finds from the beach. When she is not in her shop creating she spends as much time as she can beachcombing and collecting pieces of driftwood and shells in all shapes and sizes. It's there Sharon finds peace. Most of her inspiration is drawn from the sea: what the tides have washed ashore and where those pieces traveled from. She also likes to travel to other beaches to collect whenever she can.
Tahlulas Treasures has continued to grow and now they sell & ship nationwide. Currently Tahlulas Treasures are in stores in New Jersey, Cape Cod, Delaware, Virginia Beach, and Florida. Sharon is looking to expand to many more seaside boutiques and shops.
Sharon has expressed starting Tahlulas Treasures was the best and most rewarding decision she has made. She feels truly blessed and humbled to be able to work everyday doing what she loves. Sharon's promise is that each piece is handmade in the USA and is not mass produced by machine and is made with a whole lotta love for you to enjoy!
