We are Derek and David and we created Taylor Street to help you celebrate the Weddings, Baby Showers & Adoptions in your life.
WHY TAYLOR STREET?
David: When we started planning our own wedding it was difficult to find Favors and Gifts for a same-sex marriage…
Derek: …almost impossible unless the pride flag was to be our wedding theme. It was discouraging to shop at these one-size-fits-all favor stores that didn’t offer items suitable for a same-sex couple and failed to represent the diversity of families today in their products, marketing and advertising. We knew we could do better.
David: Knowing that other couples were having this same experience, we decided to turn this into an opportunity to create a store that welcomes both gay and straight couples, non-traditional and traditional families alike.
Derek: Taylor Street marries [!!] great products with exceptional customer service. We strive to be sincere in our marketing, transparent in our pricing, and focused on our customers.
Derek: Our vision is to inspire our customers to celebrate their lives — weddings, adoptions, births, anniversaries — with pride, with joy and without limit. We believe that today’s diverse couples and modern families are equally deserving of representation in this marketplace and …
David: …yes, positive images matter. If you can see it, you can be it!
Derek: We strive to offer unique products and designs that make Favor and Gift shopping fun and aspirational.
David: We support those individuals and companies that promote inclusiveness and offer unusual, smart, and well-made products — at different price points for different budgets.
Derek: And we even make some items ourselves when we know we can do better than what is available.
We opened our store because there is no better feeling than doing what you love. At Lilly & Taylor we create unique and inclusive favor packaging and gifts for modern couples and their weddings, showers and adoption celebrations.
The family picture is from our 2016 engagement session, which we turned into a family photo-op, including our son and our Lilly & Taylor ETSY store namesakes, Lilly (smart and sophisticated) & Taylor (handsome and wholehearted). Their personalities reflect the essence of our handcrafted favors, gifts & party supplies. We create & sell only what we would be happy to receive & use, though sometimes that means we make each other a bit crazy.
At Taylor Street we strive to provide everything you need to celebrate your wedding, baby shower or adoptionwith favors and gifts that reflect your personal style. Whether you are a gay couple or a lesbian couple, a single parent, a newly engaged bride and groom, or part of the wedding party, we want to give you the space to browse and shop knowing that your celebration is as important to us as it is to you. We are all resource strapped, so we work to make sure our favors and gifts combine great quality and budget friendliness at various price points.
New to our store? If you are not sure where to begin, our wedding themes offer trend inspiration to our customers who are looking for wedding decoration ideas. Don’t like to shop by theme? Shop by color or shop by season. Or just follow the links and let them take you on a journey of wedding story telling and put together ideas and save them to your wish list to share with family or friends. Not on a journey, but more of a mission you say – then search by product. From cake toppers to favor boxes to glassware, we’ve got you covered.
In addition to party favors, we offer gifts for the many people in your wedding, shower or celebration of any sort – bridesmaids, groomsmen, moms & dads, and expecting parents. Many of these gifts and favors can be personalized with custom text, photos, monograms or designs. We do not carry an item if it can not be customized with inclusive, unbiased, gender neutral options. We believe in equality in love and marriage. Our goal is a simple one – celebrate love.
