Here’s the second part of our baby + kids shop round-up. This time, I’ve included additional resources like some of my favorite bloggers and some Canadian shops thanks to a helpful reader up north.
Craftsbury Kids offers a lovely selection of items that are made by hand. It’s a great stop on the web for products that are unique and delightful.
Carina Schott is the lady behind Nonchalant Mom, an online shop that carries fun finds for kids to pad their nest or to dress them in darling threads. I lurk here often, the products she carries from Japan, Sweden, and beyond are stunning. Names like Kragh Rosenberg (she even carries Rosenberg clothing for adults, I want this dress), John Robshaw, Jobs Boden, etc. The shop also has a blog authored by Carina, and a line of clothing she designs. Is this not the coolest site for parents?
Cute-Ture is another fabulous kids store, I especially like all their Franck & Fischer things and their fabric banners. Everyone loves fabric banners!
Romp stocks everything from decole mushrooms to pink rocking chairs, and just so happens to be one of the first stores in the U.S. to carry the wallpaper menagerie from Dutch designer Inke Heiland. The wallpaper tree will always be a favorite of mine and is beautiful in person.
It’s hard to resist bedding from Boodalee. Their city collection is perfect for little boys.
Spunky Sprout is on fire, they’ve been featured all over lately and for good reason, their selection is hard to beat stocking items you can’t find just anywhere else like the P?kolino Clothes Tree. And have you seen the Eva foam chair & table set? It’s comfortable, safe, lightweight, durable, strong and washable – in other words, totally kid friendly.
Mirror Mirror recently expanded their shop to include a kid’s section, one that they plan to grow out in the new year. And they have Miffy! Isn’t this ceramic wall hook the best?
Reader Lisa Zuraw from Sweet Beets wrote in this morning after seeing my first round up with several shop tips for those based in Canada. Thanks, Lisa! Enfant Terrible is one she suggested, along with a few more listed below. Enfant Terrible carries the cutest Tamar Mogendorff bird cage and bird house I’ve ever seen. And Donna Wilson dolls, aw these are darling. And like Romp, they stock the Inke wallpaper decals for those of you interested up in Canada in this product. More finds from Lisa: InquisitiveKid, Baby Oh My (Natural and Eco products), Modern Baby Barn, Modern Kid and Style Kid. Great finds, Lisa!
And how can I write about kids without mentioning Mahar Drygoods? This shop is beautiful, every parent needs to dive into this online treasure chest filled with handmade goods from all over the world. And the site is gorgeous, too. These figure skates for baby and the Lisa Congdon bibs are my faves. Lisa is such a great lady, her talent runneth over.
