About Us

We are a little shop with a big mission to spark joy and connection with others through cheerful gifts and goods with a preppy edge.


What began in 2013 as a monogram shop has grown into your trusted, go-to shop for stylish, high quality gifts and goods that "scratch the itch" you feel when attempting to find that perfect little "something" for you or someone you love. You know what I'm talking about?


We totally get it and we also feel that regardless of whether you're giving or receiving, buying a gift should be a joyful experience- not just a transaction!


That's exactly why Carolina Dandy exists today.  I grew up understanding the significance and joy surrounding the traditions of gifting and hospitality.  Now, I hope that my little shop helps to continue that tradition while sparking joy and connection in the lives of others.


So whether you find the picture-perfect tray for your entryway, the statement earring that makes you feel fabulous for date night or the spot on hostess gift for the occasion, we hope you feel right at home here!

Meet Addison

I'm a joyful wife to Stephen, mama to Harrison, and we live in the heart of North Carolina.

My journey to entreprenuership was completely an accident on my part, orchestrated by God to place me exactly where He wanted me.  I was a pre-k teacher in the local school system, and Stephen and I were still considered newlyweds.  He worked long, odd hours and we had completely different schedules.  

I knew I needed something besides housework and coffee dates to keep me busy that first summer, so I began researching monogram machines.  I quickly bought my first one, and just knew I could do it.  I taught myself and began making cute things I found around the internet.  And the rest is kind of history.

A lot has changed over the years; the products I carry, my logo and website colors, just to name a few. But there has been one constant through it all, JOY!  

Whether that's talking to sweet customers, bringing their fun ideas to life with a custom gift, or hearing the joy from their unboxing experience and enjoying their never gets old.

Through it all, my biggest hope is that you find that perfect little "something" here for you or someone you love!
