We stumbled on the most cutest little garage shop in Encinitas over the weekend, just next to the Hansen’s ski treadmill (those of you north county folks will know what I mean). It’s called M•O•M and it’s full of little handmade clothes and toys and buntings and such, styled perfectly with vintage toys and tables. It’s exactly what I thought I’d be doing after I had a baby… sewing bloomers and the like. Turns out, NOT! Maybe some day sooner than later I will finish the crib bumpers I started?
But at least there is one mom out there making things I’d like to make one day:
See, it’s a tiny little shop, but just the perfect size for what it is.
Cute bunting from vintage hankies.
Little bow ties.
And sunsuits from a vintage pattern.
Standing there I had the perfect “I’m sad and glad I don’t have a girl” moment. Sad because I couldn’t buy vintage sunsuits and dresses and aprons and buntings. Glad for the same reason. Instead I bought a little set of bean bags, which are the perfect size and weight for little hands learning to grab and carry and other important life skills.
Of course I didn’t have my real camera, but iPhone is surprisingly good in a pinch.
Love MOM. LOVE.
