Baby Bags in Bloom

It is obviously that time of year, where we not only gear oursleves up for getting out and about, but we stash our baby gear in style too. Petunia Picklebottom Boxy Backpacks are a baby essential and we have loved every style that has come in and walked out of our doors. Three new options have recently arrived and here they are...

Amy Butler Arrives!

We've always loved the textile genius of Amy Butler and now we have the opportunity to carry some of her items in our store. Diaper, fashion, lingerie and travel bags are calling for us to makeover our travel essentials and hit the runway (the ones for aircraft, that is) or the open road in style this summer.

Wild for Wild & Wolf

New to hit store shelves this week are some classic favorites from Wild & Wolf sure to please any older "kids" (a.k.a. Dads and Grads) you need to bestow a gift upon.

Super Succulents

We love succulents, mostly because they seem to thrive off of the air and do not require our very un-green thumbs to keep them alive. Yes, we know we still have to water some of these vertical wall beauties featured below, but the best part is these are not your mother's house plants.

Toys, Toys, Toys

With the Spring season bringing out the hammers and nails and puppy dog tails, as well as the sugar and spice and everything nice, we thought we's stock up on toys for little kids (and those young at heart too). We are excited for what is to come. Keep posted and check the store in the coming weeks for a lot of new, creative and genius gifts.

Baby's First Book

Our favorite book for Baby' First year is this one from Rag and Bone Bindery.

These are exquisite, hand-bound books made right here in the US of A. The little state of Rhode Island to be exact. Glorious cloth cover options abound. The team behind these books is wonderfully creative and produces keepsakes to last a lifetime. The best part about this baby book is that there are twenty-four great pages to capture memories, without it being an overwhelming task for a new parent. Just enough prompts to jot down those first moments and the right amount of space to capture photos and mementoes. We simply love these books and cannot wait for our newest shipment to arrive any day now.
