it’s spring, what can i say…

gardens & babies.

i just got an exciting email from my downtown retail contact:

hi Jill=  Have you all heard about the new shop going in on Water St. downtown?  I met the woman who is starting the boutique for maternity through toddlerhood– Rian (pronounced Ryan- like with a long “i”)

She said it will be called On the Turtle’s Back and will be about half high-quality resale and half new things made by local craft-sew-people.

how excellent!  if you’ve got access to the right clothes, it can be pretty excellent figuring out new ways to show off your bump.  for example:

isabella oliver: splurge

isabella oliver: splurge


liz lange for target: cheap

liz lange for target: cheap

or, even better, buy handmade:

from etsy: thai fisherman pants

from etsy: thai fisherman pants


etsy: organic

etsy: organic




can’t wait to see what this shop will have to offer!

any idea when it is opening?

Comment by Rachel Herr

i wish her the best, but with la de da closing right up the block, i can’t help but wonder if she’s got a sustainable business model or not.
