Profile Last Updated: August 21, 2008
Are Baby Uggs, Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino yarns, a Silver Cross stroller and Noodle & Boo lotion on the nursery shopping list? How about organic cotton and bamboo baby and toddler clothes, cashmere sweaters and hand-knitted hats? Chick Pea Children’s Boutique offers a handpicked collection of essentials for the little ones as well as indulgences for busy moms and dads. This sophisticated, child-friendly boutique carries everything for modern parent lifestyles, including biodegradeable cleaning products by Caldrea.
An Oasis the Whole Family
Chick Pea opened on Commercial Drive in Vancouver in 2004 and soon developed a loyal following. In February 2007, the store re-located to a heritage building in New Westminster’s downtown. Tucked away on a back street amid a row of antique shops, Chick Pea emanates warmth and relaxation in a high-ceilinged space with exposed brick walls, hardwood floors and hand-painted armoires and tables. A comfy couch, a few of the latest magazines and a children’s play area invite families to relax and chat. In addition, the store focuses on goods sourced from small, often mom-run, companies and organic products.
The Little Extras
To make shopping even easier, Chick Pea Children’s Boutique caters to its customers with a full range of services. Gift wrap is available with every purchase. The store also offers gift registry service and can even arrange delivery of gifts to the new mom’s shower. For those who can’t make it to the store, Chick Pea offers personal shopping and gift basket services. And for those who wish to shop privately, the store is open by appointment after hours.
