Today's featured Etsy shop... Lace for Brides

My name is Melinda and my Etsy shop is Lace for Brides.

When did you start your Etsy shop?
September 9, 2013

What is the story behind your business name?
This shop is mainly tatted garters, tatting is a form of handmade lace, and garters are mainly for brides.

What do you sell?
I sell mainly hand tatted, tie on bridal garters. They are extremely customizable. You may request your wedding colors, and plus sizes are also available.

How did you get into your craft? 
My mother tatted and crocheted while I was growing up. She taught me to crochet when I was young, but it wasn't until about 5 years ago that she got me started tatting. I have just sort of taken off from there into making tatted lace jewelry, and now bridal garters.

Anything else you would like to share?
My tatted garters have no elastic, so they are great for someone who is latex allergic. Also, the plus sized garters are made specifically for those lovely women who aren't sticks. The larger sizes also do away with the awful stretched out look that can come with an elastic garter.


  1. What beautiful handmade lace!

  2. I've ordered items from Melinda and they are gorgeous. She did custom colors and sizes for me. Wonderful person to do business with. I'll be buying from her again
