Please join us for shopping with a twist on Friday October 16, 2009 as we present "Posh Tots"
Childhood is a time for make believe and today's tots are growing up in affordable elegance that makes everyone believe that with a little creativity, our little ones dreams really can come true. Children of all ages are being dressed in style and nurseries and bedrooms are decorated in luxury thanks to incorporating vintage treasures from yesteryear. At baby showers, we welcome beloved little ones with fashionable outfits and one-of-a kind treasures, like a vintage silver rattle or heirloom dresses and designer clothing made from vintage textiles. Nurseries and children's rooms are decorated with vintage and repurposed items that once considered ordinary, now add a touch of luxury that inspire imagination. You might catch a glimpse of a vintage chenille blanket draped across the crib or a delicate needlepoint pillows set on a chair. Whimsical and chic bootie planters grace a nursery shelf. Vintage hand stitched coverlets, often hung on the wall for display.
For our posh tots, every first is cause for celebration. There's the first birthday, first step, a first tooth. Parents capture all these firsts in photographs and store treasures in keepsake boxes just the right shape for a child's first coat, her first birthday dress or his first birthday suit.
Every child needs a fairy to watch over them at night and keep their dreams sweet. A fairy house night light, magical and enchanting, lets the fairies know they are welcome in this child's special place.. What girl doesn't dream of a fairy tale tea party? Perhaps a tea pot night light adds a Victorian touch to a little girl's room and whisks her off to dreamland.
Do you need something special for a little girl made of sugar and spice? An engraved silver charm for her first piece of jewelry, or paper dolls that are just like the ones you had when you were a child. For little boys made of puppy dogs' tails, lights in superhero colors to string over a headboard or around a window frame. Quilts with dinosaurs, trains, lions, and planes to add adventure to a little boy's room.With the right accessories and a sprinkling of imagination, your special child won't need pixie dust to transform into a posh tot.
