Before I created Castleberry Custom Creations, I often saw items in the store that I liked but they just weren’t me or unique enough to fit the gift receiver I was buying for. They were in the wrong color, didn’t have the name I wanted, or just weren’t right.
Then one day I finally decided I was tired of trying to find a gift to fit that “has everything” family member and I made them a gift that was exactly for them. I could choose the colors, put their name, and let their unique personality come out in their gift and they fell in love.
I was concerned with opening up the business that there just wasn’t going to be people struggling like I was to find that perfect item that fit their personality, style and could make them smile.
But then I began making items for close friends and each time I would hear those magic words “I love it” when they would get their order and a giant smile would spread across their face. I soon realized others were out there searching for items to fit their one-of-a-kind personality and I could help bring a smile to their face too.
I decided I set out to create the most unique high quality custom creations for the most unique one-of-a-kind personalities in the world.
It turns out, the road was more difficult than I imagined.
Finding high-quality supplies for the items was difficult and it took months of research to find suppliers that offered quality (USA made when possible) items and still allowed me to sell at prices my customers could smile about.
I was truly terrified that no one would like the items I created before I opened up this business. I spent hours discussing my every fear and worst case scenario with my husband and family.
Through it all, we released our first products and the response has been absolutely amazing! My customers are constantly telling me how much they love their products with huge smiles on their face and the number of happy faces grows by the day.
