A look into our shop…

I wanted to post a few pictures of our shop. We have been adding a lot of inventory and sprucing things up a bit.

I hope you like it!

Mannequin featuring Babylady Inc., Wovenplay, and Les Pompons De Violettes.

I decorated the area with Confetti System pinatas and used a simple moses basket to hold pillows.

I used a mix of new and antique furniture.

I am a bit obsessed with keeping everything neat and tidy.



Working Mama

Chapman and I going over line sheets.

I have been wanting to write a bit about being a working mom on here for a while now. However, between balancing the two stores and the two kids, I haven’t really had the time. (Shocking, I know) I’m going to get into it more in another post but for now, here is a little look at one of my trips to NYC for womens market week. One of my many responsibilities within my shops is to do a lot of the buying which involves visiting showrooms and pouring over lookbooks and pictures. I really do love my job and being a working mom is something I am really proud of but it certainly isn’t easy. Then again, nothing worth having is.

These pictures were taken by my friend, Adriana of Just By Living, who came along for the trip back in September. If you want to see more, I have been blogging over HERE for the last few months about each individual showroom we went to.

playtime roundup: Bobo Choses

Bobo Choses is one of our absolute favorites in the shop. It seems to be really popular with our customers, too. It’s hard to resist. Bobo Choses is everything you want out of a kid’s line. The fabrics are soft and light, the designs are playful, and the prints are the absolute definition of whimsical.  We had the opportunity to check out Bobo Choses at Playtime NYC. We snapped a few pics of the brands booth which was brimming with fun housewares, racks of sweet clothing, and even some fanciful toys.

We have had a huge response to Bobo Choses in our shop. James of Bleubird Vintage received a few beautiful pieces from us (you can check out her little girls in them HERE), Adriana from Just By Living was in the shop picking up a couple thing, and of course my girls wear BC all the time (check my ladies in some Bobo Choses on my instagram, follow me @monkeyandthebug)

Bobo Choses has been expanding their line to include some really unique and fun gift ideas. I LOVE this book titled “Bonjour Camille” the line created. The illustrations are completely beautiful and the story is just the sweetest! Some line and pictures from the book…

On Sunday mornings, as soon as the sun comes out,
Camille opens her eyes and puts on her battledress:
a tutu and a top hat. She has so many things to do!

The book the continues to list all the fun things little Camille has to do…

The cutest, right!? Bonjour Camille makes a great gift and it’s only 25 bucks! It’s available in our shop, you can find it HERE.
