Madrona’s got a new boutique: formerly on Beacon Hill, Buggy is the freshest spot for gently-used baby and toddler clothes (sizes 0-6), and new clothes, toys, and accessories. The shop is run by local mom owners Heather Hollenbeck and Sarah Dublin. Their plan? Offer quality items at affordable prices in a stylish, un-cluttered spot. They support local craftspeople, selling crib and stroller blankets by Rebecca’s, a local designer who hand stitches all of her wares, and embroidered blankets and Ugly-Doll-style plush (But cuter and softer) from local artist Louise Wackerman. We love shoes from Livie & Luca, onesies from Nest and eight3one, and “Flower Children Handknits,” hand-knit sweaters that have been rescued and refreshed (many are embellished or have wonderful new buttons). The gently-used items fit right in with their new counterparts – find great deals on every hanger. Don’t miss the onesie bucket, where everything is priced from $3.00 to $10.00. Buggy is ultra family-friendly, with a play area complete with a couch, toys, and lots of books to keep Little One busy. Need a last-minute Halloween costume? We spotted a bumblebee suit, a ladybug outfit, and other delights.
Buggy pays 30% of the value of your kids’ outgrown clothes in cash, or 40% in store credit. If you’ve got goods, stop by anytime with ten or fewer items, or make an appointment for larger sales.
PS – Buggy offers adult knitting classes with instruction on making a baby sweater. Call the shop for details.
