Bebe Babble closing

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

Yhst-11577408532747_2087_95107328[1] Bummer. Chic children's boutique Bebe Babble in Edina's Morningside neighborhood will close at the end of the month. It will live on online at, where shoppers might be more receptive to $85 little girls' dresses (Suri Cruise, this means you!). In its four years, Bebe Babble raised the bar for stylish, high end children's clothing and furnishings. Owner Kendra Lewis, a Target vet, has also been a big supporter of local talent. She recently started developing her own pretty, yet modern line of Bebe Babble clothing – wouldn't be surprised if we see that in other boutiques soon. Her sharp eye will be missed on the streets (especially while waiting for a table at Convention Grill). See Sales/Specials for details on Bebe Babble's closing sale.

What a zoo

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

My son’s toes are about to bust through the one pair of shoes that survived the summer (is my little guy the only one who tore the ankle band off not one, but two pairs of Croc-like Polywog sandals?). I happened to be in Uptown the other day, so I stopped in Shoe Zoo and found myself mystified, as I do every time I walk in there, that a shop selling $80 baby shoes can look like such a mess. I always get excited at first, thinking they must be in the midst of a major clearance event because the boxes are strewn everywhere. But no. Everything was full price. Not that I could find the prices, once I identified the toddler boy shoes, which were behind the salesperson who didn’t acknowledge me until I specifically asked for a price. $75 for sneakers that won’t last more than months? Can’t do it. I went home and ordered dress and play shoes from – $24.50 for both and free shipping with my Banana Republic Luxe card.
If you’re into designer kiddie shoes, but prefer not to have to step over piles of boxes to shop for them, try Red Rover Kids, Uber Baby, Bebe Babble and of course, Nordstrom.

Get your Sigg

Monday, May 26th, 2008

This whole plastic scare has aluminum Sigg water bottles flying off shelves – as I reported in my weekly "cool product alert" on the Pioneer Press’ new site. But there are many places around town to find the stylish, safe and environmentally friendly bottles. Just this week, I’ve spotted them at the new Corepower Yoga & Spa, Twin Cities Green and for the adorable Sigg bottles for kids, try Bebe Babble or Creative Kidstuff.
Bebe Babble and Pacifier are also hot spots for BPA-free plastic baby bottles – but boy, are they pricey. (Go to Peapods for glass bottles.) I’m surprised Target, in all of its trendiness, has yet to jump on the bandwagon with some new line of eco-friendly bottles. Bet that’s soon to come.
