About Us

Carolina Crafted is truly a family affair ran by us,The Gaglia Family!(Amanda Gaglia, Anthony Gaglia & our daughter Andersyn)

Our store front is nestled off Main Street in Hickory, North Carolina.

Carolina Crafted started as a side hustle out of the Gaglia garage. Amanda would make Rustic signs out of pallet wood while Anthony purchased pallets of branded Candles. Due to the power of Facebook Posts we started having people shop on both sides of the garage for our crafted goodies and great smelling candles.About a year later we knew that this business was bigger than just the square footage of our garage and like most entrepreneurs, we dreamed big, and got a store front in Downtown Hickory, North Carolina within Harris Arcade. 

While the offering we provide to our customers has evolved since our infancy of starting Carolina Crafted in the garage and within the Harris Arcade storefront, the story of sourcing and providing locally crafted goods has stayed constant. Every candle is crafted by Anthony in house at the store as well as all of the new scents are tested and trialed in house before they are available for purchase. That's why our logo has the tagline "Made in North Carolina". 

We want to make every person who walks through our door feel at home and to purchase items that make their home feel warm and inviting as well. Thank you for your patronage, for shopping local, and we welcome you and your family into our store anytime!
