“We also plan to carry nursing supplies, baby carriers, organic bath products, local and hand-made items, and other responsibly-made baby goods, gifts, and must-haves for the urban parent,” Angela Halperin told us in an email. “Our store and e-commerce site will offer a local gift registry that serves as an alternative to big box stores.”
Neighborhood residents since 2007, the Halperins had a son in 2010 and quickly noticed all the cloth-diapered babies around. “My constant complaint that there should be a cloth diaper store in the neighborhood quickly turned into, ‘we should open a cloth diaper store in the neighborhood!'” she said.
The couple also plans to hold small classes at the store – free cloth diaper and baby-wearing workshops, for starters. There will also be a small play area and nursing/changing rooms.
“For those unfamiliar, modern cloth diapering is easy, eco-friendly, and can literally save families thousands of dollars over disposables,” she said.
Plan is to open about the second week of May. We’ll keep you posted.
