In the fall of 2004, I was visiting my brother’s family in Maryland when I noticed my nephew, Shippen, wearing a very familiar looking belt.  When I asked him where he had gotten it, he replied “I found it in the attic, in a box of old belts of my dad’s”.  I began to laugh and said “I made that for him over 34 years ago!”  I guess “preppy” never really goes out of style!  That Christmas I decided to make similar belts for family and friends.

A friend suggested I should start a business making them.  After pondering the idea I decided to give it a try.  In March of 2005 Candi Belts became a reality.  The rest as they say is history!

In the meantime, we have added a few more products to the Candi Belts line.  We now have notepads, headbands and sandals that all mirror the belts.  New are Luggage Locators, great for being the first to spot your luggage or golf bag!
