(meet my guest) BOUGHTIN BABY & BRIDE

Tell us about the name of your Etsy shop, Boughtin Baby & Bride, and how it came to be?
I had an Etsy shop called The Dotted Line Sign Co that I started when I was finished planning my wedding and still wanted to keep making wedding signs. It did fairly well, but around Thanksgiving, I made a onesie on a whim for a friend and all of a sudden business started booming. I couldn't very well call it a sign shop anymore, so I used my new last name, Boughtin, to create Boughtin Baby & Bride. Though my bridal offerings are limited to printables and wine charms these days, I figured most brides eventually turn into mothers, so the name still fit my audience.


Was there a specific person, place, or thing that inspired you to start this business?
My girlfriend has three daughters and asked me to make a "little sister" onesie for her family photos, and I posted it in my shop and sold a couple right off the bat. I designed a Thanksgiving onesie as a beta test to see how it would do, and people bought them like hotcakes! I realized I had a real knack for design, so I started making a bunch of different (very cheesy) onesies that I knew would sell really well leading up to Christmas. When I realized my hobby could become a business, I decided to use my artistic liberties to cut back on the cheesy ones and start designing things I would put my own children in. I am very streamlined; I love minimal graphic tees with printed leggings, etc, so I have been creating styles that are simple and chic, and can be worn with busier pieces. 

I also get tons and tons of custom orders- I can put anything you can dream of on a onesie or kids t-shirt, or change the color, font and wording of any of my designs. All you have to do is ask!


Do you have a single favorite product? If so, please share a picture and tell us why this piece is so special.
My very favorite is the "Don't Kill My Vibe" onesie, which was inspired by the Kendrick Lamar song. It's very hip-hop, very chic, but also sells well with a crowd that isn't into hip-hop and just loves the phrase. My second favorite would have to be any of the bauble necklaces, which have been my best sellers! They can really go with anything, and we know babies can't yet wear jewelry, so why not put one right on the front of a onesie?!

  3. I like the "Sunglasses" onesie that's shown on the Etsy shop. Since our baby's gender will be a surprise until birth, I could get that one now and come back later for more.
