Did ya know we have an Etsy store?
Yep we sure do!

I try to keep the “BUY FROM US” type post to a very very small minimum but I do love sharing about our little family run business on Shop Small Saturday.

Yipee that’s a pretty sweet deal!

If our Etsy store is all new to you and you’re wondering what the what I’m talking about I thought I would also take today to share a little about how we got started and why DROOLZIES rocks!

IMG_1941The one that started it all

How We Came To Be: When Weston was itty bitty he cut his 1st teeth right at 4 months. Yep an early teether and man oh mighty was he a major drool bucket. I was constantly wiping drool from his chin and saying “Oh buddy you have droolzies” was something I said at least 20 times a day and shirts were changed throughout the day almost as much. I would put him in the typical bibs which were ok but I just hated the way they looked and they didn’t do the job. The ones that worked-ish had a plastic lining which are not breathable and many would not absorb drool due to that same plastic material that kept it from leaking through onto his clothing. Enter a mama with a need…….

I wanted something cute yet functional. Something that helped keep his clothing dry but also had a breathable material. Something that he would be comfortable wearing.

I reached out to my mother-in-law who was a professional seamstress and DROOLZIES was born.

In the beginning they were just something my mother-in-law made for Weston to wear but after tons of interest from friends, family and even strangers on the street we decided to open a little shop on Instagram.

I was blown away with how much support and love our little Instagram page received. I had a hard time keeping up with sales and as we grew found it more challenging to streamline the ordering process via Instagram so 2 years ago we opened our Etsy shop!

And here we are!

My mother-in-law is the brains behind the sewing machine and y’all she rocks in the quality department! I run the design, order fulfillment, and social media side of the buisness. Every now and then my father-in-law steps in to help and Kent (my hubby) is my right hand IT man. We’re the definition of a small family run business.

Why DROOLZIES Rocks:

Our bandana bibs are designed to grow with your baby and have 2 snap options. My boys started wearing their DROOLZIES when they were 2 months old and Weston wore his same DROOLZIES up until he was 1.5. I tried one on him just for fun the other day (he’s currently 2) and it still fits!

DROOLZIES has a flannel backing. This keeps the drool from soaking through onto your child’s clothing BUT and this was a big one for me it’s still breathable…..not like that plastic lined bibs.

Quality that last! Weston always and I mean always had a DROOLZIES on during his teething years. He was such a drool bucket that I had to keep one on him or take 10 changes of clothing when me when we left the house. We washed and wore and washed and wore his DROOLZIES like crazy and those very same DROOLZIES are now being worn by my 2nd son.

We try our best to ship quickly! I know what it’s like to by something from an Esty vendor and wait weeks I’ve even waited months for an item to arrive. I don’t want to do that to you! If it’s in our store it’s made and ready to ship!

Many of our customers are return customers! I love seeing that little green star (noting that a customer is a repeat buyer) on an invoice! That means we’re holing up our end of the deal!

We keep our store stocked and add new prints often! We currently have 40 different prints in our store and sitting next to me as I type are 12 new prints waiting to be photographed and added to our shop!

Now let’s look at some of these cuties I’ve been chatting about:
