brick + mortar

Lucy (+ Greer hee, hee) love to play “retail shop”. So, for Christmas we thought it only fitting to make them their very own Bitsy brick + mortar. A place to sell a flavor of what they wish to their itsy bitsy customers. Oh what fun! We had a TON of fun creating it and want to share it with you! One of our Grammies made the beautiful curtain above the shop “window”. It is a vintage fabric that was used in her baby’s bedrooms years ago. Adding just the right amount of special-ness!

Please excuse the organic feel of our “shoot”. It was an icky day outside, so we decided to throw up a sheet and let the girls have some playtime! We hope the cuteness of L + G in their shop steal your attention.

 As you can see, the shop has been quite busy recently! It is “closed” today for a much needed holiday…

bitsy favorite for the itsy…NOCH MINI!

Bitsy is pumped to introduce you to a brand that enthusiastically follows an organic way of life. Meet Noch Mini. The name NOCH signifies “the basic and majority elements of everything living & organic – N(nitrogen), O (oxygen), C (carbon), H (hydrogen)”. Bitsy has shared organic brands with you in the past – we are definitely passionate about what materials we put on our sweet babies’ + childrens’ skin. Noch Mini uses only certified organic materials and low-impact dyes. We applaud and thank them for their thoughtfulness!

It can be difficult to find adorable options that are also 100% healthy for our pipsqueaks’ little bods. Well, not only does Noch stand by its organic promise, but the designer, Jina Jang, does not skimp on style + trend when creating her collections. Without further adieu, let us introduce you to NOCH MINI…
