From catwalk to curbside: children’s boutique keeps kids’ closets stocked
A solid ten on the adorbs scale, Georgetown’s Seeds to Saplings has been outfitting children in sweet and stylish clothing since spring of 2011. The bricks-and-mortar boutique may be closed at the moment, but the shop is providing alternative ways for parents to preview and purchase high quality clothing and accessories, storybooks, toys, cuddly stuffed animals, seasonal items like goodies for Easter and more.
“I am offering items daily through video clips and photos of in-stock items on social media – Facebook and Instagram – and I am also setting up Facetime appointments for customers and texting photos to others,” said Seeds and Saplings owner Resa Browning.
With Easter right around the corner, Resa has been getting more and more requests to put together Easter baskets together for customers for curbside pickup or delivery. The shop owners has a few timely recommendations to tuck into baskets, including these books from her favorite “I Am. . .behavior” board book series by Jen Porter: I am Brave, I am Tidy and I am Kind.
“These are definitely appropriate skills to be communicating to kids all the time, but especially today,” she said. “Another great title for children right now is Sheryl McFarlane’s I Love Kisses.”
As for the tradition of new “Easter frocks,” Lisa notes that this custom definitely looks different at the moment.
“Customers are purchasing items that will be used later in the season, like knit dresses, swimwear and shorts outfits instead of a dressier option for church services. Some are even planning to add new clothing to Easter baskets, and we have lots of fun Easter-themed bows, clips, spring ties and socks that, when added to things already in the closet, can give a fun, fresh look.”
