Shopping for babies and toddlers can be quite a struggle! Finding the right materials, the correct fit and the best quality (without breaking the bank) are all things that new parents grapple with in the first few years of parenthood. I’ve compiled a list of some of my favourite shops I’ve found in Vancouver!
- Parade Organics – $$
They have a beautiful selection of colours and patterns in all sorts of styles. If you are looking for onesies and rompers made from organic, fair-trade cotton, then Parade has you covered! They have a great online shop, or if you are looking to shop in-store, they have locations in Gastown and Granville Island.
- West Coast Kids – $$$$
With locations on Main Street and in Richmond, West Coast Kids is a trendy shop carrying only the best brands in baby apparel. (Jillian Harris shops here apparently!)
- Hip Baby – $$$
Located on West 4th, Hip Baby carries a great selection of baby brands. They are known for their excellent customer service and are the perfect place to go if you have any questions or are shopping for gifts!
- Little Earth – $$
Offering both new and gently used clothing, Little Earth is possibly Vancouver’s best-kept secret for parents. Their selection is incredible, the owner is super friendly and you can find some great deals on their consignment clothing! Located on the vibrant Commercial Drive.
- Isola Bella Children’s Clothing and Shoe Boutique – $$$
Isola Bella is a unique boutique in Kerrisdale, carrying both established and up-and-coming European labels. A lot of their products can’t be found elsewhere, making it the perfect place for that special piece!
