Local Children’s Boutique is Open for Busines
By: Hummingbird in a Shoebox
To celebrate the opening, the store's owner, Brigitte Shepard, will be hosting a Grand Opening event Friday, September 20, featuring complimentary snacks, children’s goodie bags and wine tasting. The event is free and open to the public from 5:30-6:30 p.m.
The children’s boutique offers fashions from a variety boutique designers ranging from newborn to size 8. Designer brands carried include Cupcakes & Pastries, Attitude Pie, Haute Baby, Rufflebutts, Jelly the Pug and more.
Hummingbird in a Shoebox began as an online only children’s boutique earlier this year. With the growing demand for products from customers, Brigitte Shepard decided to branch out and open a space within the successful downtown woman’s boutique to offer local resident’s the option to buy in store without the shipping costs. "Our goal is to provide customers of Hummingbird in a Shoebox the same fun and inviting shopping experience that Two Shopaholics offers. Hummingbird in a Shoebox has a mix of adorable baby and children’s clothing and accessories with a price tag suitable for everyone," says Shepard.
The idea to open a children’s boutique came from Brigitte Shepard’s inspiration as a young mother to help other mom’s find affordable and adorable clothing that they cannot find in a traditional store.
