Recently I was invited to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Auggie, a splendid children’s boutique in the charming Yorkville neighborhood. The delightful shop and its big sister fashion store next door, Augustina, are top-notch destinations for your holiday shopping. At Augustina, the stupendous in-house brands have recently expanded to include fragrances, jewellery and leather goods, and over at Auggie you will find all sorts of darling gift ideas such as vintage Babar and Winnie The Pooh framed prints, 3 Sprouts organic canvas storage bins, durable Beatrix backpacks, and so much more for your child and home — all of which can now be ordered online here. And while toasting the 1 year-old Auggie I was so happy to find out store owner, Cristina Burgess, and her sister (and graphic designer) Genevieve will soon be adding a super-marvelous kid's bedding collection that includes sheet sets, duvets, pillows and quilts to the mix. So, while we all venture out to tackle our last-minute shopping lists, I hope you get a chance to enjoy all the holly-jolly goodness found at Auggie and Augustina. Happy shopping!
