Celebrating 19 Years!

Joy & Chaos is celebrating 19 years this May!

As a small business, we could not be more grateful for your support over the last two decades. That’s a lot of new babies, birthdays, graduations, vacations, housewarmings, reunions, engagements, bachelorette parties, bridal showers, weddings, & all the holidays!

From our start as a brick and mortar kids clothing store in Chicago in 2003, to reaching customers all across North America 19 years later, we feel lucky to have played a small part in so many special events and occasions. It has been a wild ride and we are looking forward to helping you celebrate the joy (and chaos) of even more of life’s big moments.

To all our awesome customers, clients, friends and family – thank you!

-Marlo & Lisa
