How did Doe A Deer get started?

The product side of Doe A Deer started as an experiment more or less. I wanted to try creating some products just for the heck of it. After getting what I thought was a great response at the time, I continued creating new products and searching out stores that would carry my products in their shops! In 2016, I left the corporate world for a more creative track and opened my online boutique.

From a young age, I always admired the patterns and designs in vintage linens, cookbooks, and packaging. It was these small details that always brought me back to some of my best memories from childhood. It only made sense that Doe A Deer would specialize in kitchen decor and home goods designed to inspire a sense of nostalgia in our everyday lives.

“I will never stop finding ways to inspire upbeat spaces in your home.”

Our products are not only visually appealing, but also practical and sustainable! [Even with 10+ product categories], every single product is handmade, built to last and brings an uplifting touch to your home.

The Vellabox surprise gift of the month is our Mini Bowl Covers that can be used on cereal bowls, soup bowls, and small loaf pans. Great for leftovers this time of year without the plastic.

A few things that make our Bowl Covers the perfect kitchen addition:

-Machine washable

-100% cotton fabric

-Eco-friendly (eliminating pesky plastic wrap)

I am OBSESSED with bowl covers. Not only do they add some brightness and cozy touch to your kitchen, but they also are SO practical. Everyone has bowls they don’t have lids for or need an easy way to cover up some leftovers. Plus they’re available in a variety of sizes and seasonally-inspired patterns!

Although these stylish and easy-to-use bowl covers will probably add such a fun touch to your own kitchen, don’t forget that they also make amazing housewarming & wedding gifts – so be sure to spread the love!

What other products from your site should Vellabox subscribers use their coupon on?

Our flour sack towels are our best selling product by far for a kitchen statement piece on your oven.

Pictured here: flour sack towels, Swedish dishcloths, oven mitts and more

Customers also love Swedish dishcloths & they are another great reusable product!

Ditch single-use paper towels and opt for this reusable dishcloth that will absorb spills & last you 4-6 months.Toss in the washing machine or the top rack of your dishwasher when it needs a good clean!

What has been the best part of your job?

I love getting to see customers reactions when they see our new designs & offerings. Gift-giving is my love language, so getting to help people pick out gifts is a dream.

What is something you learned from working in this industry that you didn’t know before?

I went to college for graphic design, but working with textile design & printing is a whole other world. I’ve learned so much about fabric manufacturing and the process. It’s so interesting!
