Our Story

Carolina Dandy believes in the details, in making others feel special, and in celebrating the big and the small by commemorating with custom personalization and embroidered gifts



Addison Garlick, owner of Carolina Dandy

Carolina Dandy was founded by Addison Garlick, when she accidently fell into the world of embroidery.  Always a lover of monograms, personalization, and making others feel special, Addison began offering monogrammed sweatshirts and tees while teaching public school in 2013.  Self-taught, she thought this would only be a hobby or at the most a side job to play around with in the fringe hours. In 2015, the business had grown enough to leave her teaching job, and she's been stitching away helping her customers create magic and memories ever since!

Addison handpicks all the gifts offered in the shop. They must meet her high standards for practicality, quality, and detail.  All customization is created and embroidered by Addison. Everything is made in her home studio in High Point, North Carolina.

When you shop with Addison, you're getting personal attention with years of experience, quality craftmanship, and warm and fuzzy feeling of knowing you're making a difference by supporting a woman-owned, small business.
