Check Out the Lineup For Blue Print’s Little People Market & Party

We obviously have a thing for kids decor. We have a beautiful package in the latest issue of D Home devoted to the latest and greatest in local children’s design. You can check it all out here. So, when we heard that one of our favorite design shops Blue Print was having a trunk show/party/market specifically devoted to design for the little people, we rejoiced. And quickly marked our calendars. The Uptown store knows what it’s like to shop with kids (read: it’s hard) so they’ve supplied a bounce house (genius), face painters (hooray!), and popsicles (you had me at Steel City) to keep your babe entertained while you sift through the wares.

Five Father’s Day Gift Ideas from Local Shops

Consider this your Father’s Day calendar reminder: it’s Sunday, June 21. That gives you about two weeks to find your dad the perfect gift that says, “Thanks for being you. And also, I put a little thought into this gift and I swear I didn’t buy it the day before.” After all, he did teach you how to ride a bike, catch a fish, hit a golf ball, and tell a joke. (Talking to you, Dad.)

If you need a little help, we’ve rounded up five Instagram picks below. We suggest steering away from the obligatory tie/coffee mug/golf ball set and checking out these local stores for more unique gift ideas.

8 (Adorable) Rain Essentials for Kids

This month is officially the wettest May on the books. And it doesn’t look like it’s stopping today or tomorrow. And you know what is tough when it rains? Hauling your kiddos in and out of a car seat en route to the grocery store/summer camp/gymnastics.
