Baby Is Not In A Corner at Our Spring Market (4/13)

No Cry Babies On Sunday!

When we first started these markets, there weren’t any baby vendors in site… oh how we have grown in just a few years. There will be plenty of cute baby stuff for your own little ones at our Spring Market this Sunday. If you aren’t preggers, I bet you know someone who is and we the have perfect baby shower gifts, plus we guarantee the market will be more fun than registry shopping at Babies R’ Us (shudder). See you Sunday!

body・face・hair Baby Wash by Limegreen – $8

Diet Cat Onesie by Haskieville Apparel – $18

Baby Pacifier Strings by Cheek-ie – $22

The Back Room Consignment Shop

The Back Room Consignment Shop & Art Gallery

When I visited the Back Room Consignment Shop (832 Manhattan Ave), I spent an hour looking through the collection.
