About

BlessedMart - How it all started...

Hello everyone and thanks for visiting!
We are Miko and Antonia. Orthodox Christians, working full time for a large telecommunications company. We love art and art loves us :)
First it was a favor. Then it became a hobby. Now is a passion!

Miko:
It all started back in 2012 when my mother asked me for a favor. A very good friend of hers was looking for help. She was very talented iconographer but was having trouble selling her icons. I liked the icons so much that I immediately bought all of them at that time. Later on she painted some new ones and wanted me to visit her and check them out. Again I was amazed by the quality of her work. As you probably expect, I bought a few new icons and my collection started to get bigger and bigger over time.
Soon I realized that eBay could help us both and listed a few icons for sale. Months later the first sale came in. I was thrilled. With my help the iconographer was making her living by painting icons. She decided to quit her 8-5 job and do what she really likes to do - write icons.
Here we are today, 4 years later. Two in-house iconographers writing icons specifically for the needs of our online store. Close collaboration with more than 15 iconographers from across Bulgaria and Greece. More than 500 hand-painted icons sold every year. We have shipped icons to 5 continents and more than 30 countries.

We guarantee the originality and authenticity of all icons.
Shop with confidence!

Thanks for visiting!
Miko and Antonia

Frequently asked questions

Are your icons blessed?

No - it is not typical to sell pre-blessed icons. It is customary to have icons blessed by one's parish priest, who can explain the local practice in more detail.

Do you offer faster shipping (shipping upgrades)?

Yes - please contact us for more information.

Do you ship to APO/FPO/DPO addresses?

All International shipments to APO/FPO/DPO addresses in the US are automatically rejected by USPS. This is why we are not allowed to ship to such addresses. We can deliver to any USA address and the package can be rerouted by a friend or relative. Thanks for your understanding!

Custom and personalized orders

We gladly accept commissions. You can order an icon in any size and subject. Please contact us for more information.

We guarantee you safe delivery.
