Baby Boutique

It’s hot. You’re tired. The kids are whiny. Do you really want to go shopping?
Heck, yes. We’re not talking about the groceries! There are some unique new Vancouver boutiques that we think are well worth the effort.

We popped into Pebble—a Kitsilano baby and toddler shop that’s celebrating its official grand opening this Saturday—and found lots to like. While it’s not far from the baby/maternity shopping hub that is Fourth and Arbutus, the six blocks difference means parking isn’t such a nightmare.

Inside the bright, uncluttered interior you’ll find products that are funky and functional at the same time, along with a range of baby basics such as safe rubber pacifiers and the ultra-soft, absorbable Bamboobino offerings like washcloths and other nursery essentials. We couldn’t resist the bugalug headbands that are especially designed to stay in place on a little girl’s (or mom’s) head, and loved the Pippalily toy straps that are a colourful way to keep playthings and soothers attached to a stroller or car seat so they don’t wind up on the sidewalk. Owner Jordan Proulx promotes locally designed and produced goods where she can, a prime example being the Cici Art Factory paintings that adorn the walls. Created by Vancouver artist Liz Clay, the bold, bright works come in a range of themes and are guaranteed to lift the spirits of grown-ups and kids alike.
