While pregnant with my first child, ten years ago, I became acutely aware of the origin of the phrase, “It takes a village to raise a child”.
I recall feeling lost and wishing there was a local resource for new moms to use to guide them through the needs and essentials for a new baby whether it be your first or third, which I now have three little ones, Ari (9), Levi (6) and Nava (4).
My husband and I opened our first gift and gear boutique in the Maitland/Winter Park area of Florida 10 years ago to fill that need in our community. As retail dictates these days, we soon branched into the online world. Both in the shop and online we pride ourselves with providing our customers with the utmost personal attention and customer service. Our staff is local moms who can easily relate to our customers and help educate them on the best products for their personal lifestyle. The shop is always buzzing with new trending products products, kids playing and wonderful, sincere conversation and education between parents.
In my time away from the shop and the online site, my family and I enjoy the many perks of living in Florida, we swim, boat and explore the Orlando area attractions. We also, as a family, are very active with many non-profit organizations within our local community.
