By now you will probably have guessed that we love shopping – be it for ourselves, for our house or for someone else. We get so excited when we find new shops, especially when they are as ah-mazing as our newest discovery – enter Little Citizens Boutique in Holywood, located just above the gorgeous Red Ruby Rouge. Little Citizens Boutique has been open for 6 short weeks but is already making a name for itself! The company’s opening line on their About Us page on their website says it all really – “bringing the best designs from around the world to children everywhere.”
We called in on Saturday to catch up with the lovely Alicia – the brains behind Little Citizens – and had to literally drag ourselves away! We were oo-ing over Moulin Routy sleeping bags and aa-ing over silk tulle tutus (why do they not do adult sizes?!)! Everything was just so pretty and so flippin’ cute! And look at Mrs Sophie Swan – is this not the most fabulous soft toy you have EVER seen?!
Alicia’s passion shone through as she explained the ethos behind her shop – “”to source designs that transform your everyday experience, reduces overall consumption and brings people closer together. We believe that a few good things will do.” We think this attitude is so refreshing in today’s throwaway society. The items in her store are not only gorgeous to look at, they’ll also give you a warm feeling inside as you learn they are all made from the highest grade, sustainable and organic materials. These toys and clothes aren’t disposable, they’re the type of items you will keep a lifetime and even pass on to future generations. For example the little wooden toolbox we fell in love with on Saturday:
Each piece is crafted so beautifully and in such detail, it’s a timeless toy and would be a pleasure to give to any child who fancies themselves a DIY person. The boutique is full of items like these. Alicia handpicks all the items in store and picks up little treasures for the shop from all over the globe – LA to New York, Hong Kong to Paris.
We have fallen head over heels in love with Little Citizens Boutique and can’t wait to have some little citizens of our own to spoil with beautiful gifts from the store.We highly recommend a visit and are super excited and delighted to announce that…
