MALUKA IS A LOCAL BOUTIQUE WITH URBAN STYLE

Growing up in Augusta, Georgia, Ginny Lovelace knew her dad loved history and his extensive coin collection, but she didn’t share those interests.
“He would be reading a book about the Civil War or what we called ‘playing’ with his coins, but I didn’t spend much time with my dad. I was concerned about my next date or something like that. We didn’t have a lot in common when I was growing up,” Lovelace said.
