i'm shopping for you since i can't shop for myself!

Oh Joy! Vintage

If you follow along on my Instagram stories, you may know I've been on a shopping (clothing) spending freeze this year because of our home build. I've been shifting what I would normally spend in fun clothing purchases and putting that towards our house.

The only exceptions are:
-Vintage clothes under $40
-Gifts I receive from friends or through work
-Things for the kids if they truly need them

Basically, no new clothes for me in 2019.

Because of those rules, I've come across a TON of great things that someone should get because I still love using my skills of searching the internet to find treasures. So, today, here are some things I found on Etsy recently that someone should buy!

One of the most common questions I get asked about Oh Joy! and our business is why we choose to create products through licensing vs. manufacturing them ourselves. So I thought it would be fun to breakdown the pros and cons (to me) and tell you why we license...
