Joy Street Kids

We have been fans of Joy Street Kids since the very beginning. Hand drawn by founder and local mom Eliza, every Joy Street Kids design is beautifully detailed and printed on high-quality, 100% pima cotton fabric that feels like butter.

We love the Boston line for our own kids and for Boston-themed gift giving, but Joy Street Kids also offers a holiday line, clothing featuring several other cities, and some seriously adorable themes.

Meghan was born and raised on the South Shore and attended college in Boston. After college, she married her high school sweetheart and followed him to Charleston, SC, and Groton, CT, where he served as a submarine officer in the United States Navy.

Meghan is the proud owner of Boston Moms and work-at-home mom to William, Benjamin, and Caroline, born in 2013, 2015 and 2019. She loves meeting new people, encouraging moms, celebrating motherhood, and supporting small businesses.
