“Near the forfront of the next generation of parenting tools...Red Tricycle is not your mother's parenting aide. Readers are razr-phone-toting, book-club-joining moms who at least know what a blackberry is."

Bonjour, New Little Store

Seattle moms Monica Fetty and Carolyn Cussac wanted to open a children's shop with an eye toward green-ness, affordability, and quality. Le Petit Shoppe is the result, a fab new place to find gently worn kids' outfits (infant to size ten) and maternity clothes. Fetty and Cussac are selective in what they re-sell, so you'll find only top brands here, at eye-popping prices. We found onesies from Petit Bateau and Catimini for $8. Then we went on to browse baby furniture, strollers, rain boots, shoes, sweaters, dresses, ski jackets and more —all in like-new condition. While meandering the shop's open, boutique-style space, we also came across new items from local blanket and burp cloth designer So Anna, paintings by a local mom, and panties from Hanky Panky at wholesale cost ($8). Have in-season items to sell? Le Petit Shoppe buys outright —your credit goes toward new purchases or straight into your wallet. This Saturday, Feb.2, the shop is celebrating in style with a grand opening party featuring Cupcake Royale goodies and the launch of local author and illustrator Tara Jorgensen's picture book Nina and Madison Ride the Bus in Seattle. A portion of proceeds from the book's sale that day go to Children's Hospital. More fun events are in the works, including a Mom's Night Out with childcare, manicures, and a denim sample sale. Welcome to the neighborhood, Le Petit Shoppe.
