Styling kids: Little Owl

Brand new on the scene in Braddon, adding to the design mecca on Lonsdale st (already home to The Hive Gallery, Unit Concepts, Bourgois Pig, Iskip Itrip and Pink Inc) is something for the littlies. Little Owl, opened 2 weeks, has already become a favourite spot for several mums in my loop (and now me!) and with very good reason.

Inspired by a shop in Byron bay catering for the stylish gift giver, Little Owl stocks quite a unique range of contemporary designs with a vintage twist: clothing, blankets, nappy bags, handmade toys, puzzle games and much more - never seen in Canberra before.
Labels, exclusives in Canberra, include Miss Haidee, Itch, Tea Pony (check out their website), Blink Designs, Doobi, Well Spotted, and the iconic new baby rocker "Coco" by Bloom... hot hot hot!
Other brands stocked are (one of my faves) Rock Your Baby (for genuinely hilarious slogan tops) and Cocoon Couture (tree, above centre). I was particularly excited to see the range of boys clothing, ALL of which I would dress my boys in... rare moment!
Couldn't leave without... a hankerchief (handprinted with a lego man on it!), the long sleeve t-shirt with the superhero bunny, by Itch (pictured) and this too cute origami faces set by Djeco.
Little Owl, 25 Lonsdale st Braddon. The website is coming soon...

I've been waitng for her to open the store. She's the owner of Cowboys And Angels. I think that she'll do really well. It's in a great part of town. It's about time we have something like this in Canberra. Thank goodness!!!
