Today, we are introducing a brilliant and different type of Etsy store that is a must see! C & T Custom Lures, out of Arizona offers personalized gifts for special occasions. These gifts are not your typical "shot glass" gift. Better yet, they are gifts that last a lifetime, particularly for males. C & T Custom Lures includes custom and personalized fishing lures, painted crank-baits, wallet insert keepsakes, metal keychains, repurposed gun bullet items, motocross gifts, hunting and fishing decor, and more! Their products are topnotch, made of heavy gauge metal, and we are thrilled to share more about their amazing store and story today.
C & T Custom Lures has grown rapidly for the past 2 years, carrying over 650 products with each one handcrafted in their small home shop. We had the pleasure of chatting with one of the owners who has a strong passion for what she does. She happily shared, "Our business began in January 2013 as a Christmas gift to our kids. Sounds funny, I know. A t the time our boys were 11 and 12 years old. Both of them had been handcrafting wood and metal fishing lures in our garage with their Dad for awhile and they wanted to sell their items to others. I stumbled across Etsy and thought how cool it would be to surprise them with a “shop” for a Christmas gift. So I photographed a few of their items and named the shop C and T Custom Lures which is each of their first initials. Over the Christmas break from school they helped me figure out what they wanted to sell and the shop opened it’s doors with just 5 handmade fishing lures. The shop grew quickly and within the 1st year we realized this was going to turn into a full-time business venture for all of us. We haven’t looked back since!"

When you think of glam, what do you think? To many, glam means to shimmer and shine. It's an adult woman wearing a gold sequin dress with bright red lipstick and Prada shoes but little girls can be glamorous too. The D.Liles Collection boutique carries vintage-inspired dresses and accessories that represent such sophistication in a girl. These stylish dresses are particularly perfect for weddings and special occasions with each design having it's own special name and character.
D.Liles Collection boutique was established by Daria Tator of New York, NY in 2013 and prospers daily. Tator has a true passion for fashion and takes pride in creating elegant and chic designs with lace, chiffon, tulle, and more. Below are just a few examples of Tator's beautiful dresses and headpieces. The Chloe dress design (top, left) has been featured on Glamour.com weddings and seems to be quite a popular design. Imagine your daughter in such a jazzy dress. This is certainly a dress she will love and never forget wearing.
Jayson mentions, "My paintings speak of the wisdom, strength and power as well as the beauty of woman and I have created products to act as tools and talismans to help inspire, heal and empower women along their own journeys. It starts with the paintings and then there are the prints, cards and prayer kits around that image and archetype. I also have Chakra meditation kits and meditation tools based on my Chakra series of paintings, to help people balance and align themselves for wellbeing."
Jayson left the UK in 1996 and moved to Sydney Australia, and then to NY in 1999. She has showed her work at many metaphysical and spiritual shows and workshops around the country and wanted to expand her audience through Etsy in 2013. Her work has been featured in many shows and even on book covers. Jayson currently lives in Westchester, NY and while she raises two lovely children, she enjoys her time creating beautiful paintings and products to inspire and empower women around the world. As like most "Etsypreneurs", her biggest challenge is finding a balance between, marketing, social media, selling and creating. One can imagine the thought process and time it takes to create such amazing works of art.
