While living in Athens and attending The University of Georgia, our owner, Jennifer Murray, developed a love for the city and all of the unique things that make Athens special. In 2017, Jennifer and her family moved from Lake Oconee to Watkinsville, right down the street from her beloved Classic City.
With the move, Jennifer had a desire to share the city with her kids, so she set out to uncover the best local products made by small businesses right here in Athens. Iconic products like Jittery Joe's Coffee and Peach State Pride, plus Classic City Bee Company, Condor Chocolates, and artwork by local artist Natty Michelle were at the top of the list.
Jennifer launched Only Georgia with the first gift box after the Murray family's regular babysitter graduated from The University of Georgia in 2020. She built the box with local Athens favorites and decided to share the box with others that have a fondness for Athens.
Only Georgia has recently launched boxes for Lake Oconee and plans to expand our gift boxes to additional areas of the state, including St. Simons Island.
Thank you for supporting our small, family business. We look forward to serving you and can't wait for you to experience the great state of Georgia through products made by other small businesses within our state!
