Lil Kids Stuff Giveaway!

A few weeks ago, while Maddie was at Vacation Bible School, I stopped at a Children's Specialty Store in Downtown Bloomsburg (PA), called Lil Kids Stuff. My Mom bought Maddie an outfit from this store several years ago and it is still one of my favorites. Maddie wore it and now Jeanne has been able to wear it all summer. Ever since my Mom bought Maddie that outfit I wanted to stop in and check the store out. The reason being that number one it was one of my favorite outfits and number two I just can't find clothes so stylish and of such quality around here.

You are probably wondering why it took me several years to walk into this Children's store. Honestly, I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to afford their clothes. I think that I heard the word specialty and thought that it meant that only rich people can shop in their store. I know, sometimes I get myself worked up about the silliest things.

Let me tell you that I was very surprised when I walked into Lil Kids Stuff because their clothing is very comparably priced to a store such as Macy's or the Bon-ton. Please don't misunderstand, the pricing is comparable but the quality and style is not. I love Macy's but I have to tell you that, in my opinion, Lil Kids Stuff is one hundred times better. Let me list just a few of the reasons why.

1. Unique and Stylish Clothing
2. Excellent Customer Service
3. Excellent Quality of Clothing
4. Play area for the children
5. Clean bathrooms

Before I stepped into Lil Kid's Stuff, Macy's was my favorite store. I like to buy Unique, Stylish, great quality clothing at a good price. Now that I have stepped foot into Lil Kid's Stuff I may never shop at Macy's for Children's clothes again.

Rose Niederhiser, the owner of Lil Kid's Stuff, has the most amazing taste in children's clothing that I have ever seen. I can honestly tell you that I did not see one item in her store that I didn't think was a great quality product and beautiful. I have been telling everyone that Rose's taste in children's clothing is so much like mine that it is scary. I have never met someone in my life whose taste in clothing were so similar. Now you can see why I am so excited about this store. The clothes she sells are just beautiful. I seriously want one of everything!

Not only does Rose have great taste in Children's Clothing but she also is a genuinely sweet person. We hit is off from the first time we met. She really cares about her customers. She is so helpful when you need her to be but she is not a pushy sales woman. I love that she doesn't hover over you when you are shopping. That is one thing that I can't stand when entering a store. Rose's customer service skills are great! She makes sure you know that she is there to help you but she also gives you your space to shop. It's the best of both world's! Sorry, my daughter has been watching too many Hanna Montana reruns. :)

Did I mention that Lil Kids Stuff has a play area for the children? I'm not kidding. Rose has a play area in the middle of her store for the children to play while you shop. It is wonderful! My girls were fully entertained the entire time I was shopping and still in my sight at all times. It is so nice to shop while your kids play. It makes life so much more relaxing and the kids love that they aren't strapped down to a stroller as I shop.

I know you probably thought I was kidding when I put the clean bathroom thing on my list. If you know me you know that I have a fear of public bathrooms. Okay, maybe not a fear but I am totally grossed out by them. So when Jeanne said that she had to use the bathroom I'm sure that I cringed. Potty training in public is not fun for me. Rose was so sweet and showed me that both of her large dressing rooms have bathrooms in them. Jeanne actually used them several times in one shopping trip. :) It was so nice to allow my child to use a clean bathroom in public. I know, I'm a little bit of a germ-a-phob. :)

My favorite part of Lil Kids Stuff is that my children look adorable in their clothing and I can afford it. Yes, their clothing is a little higher priced then your discount stores but you get what you pay for. In my case, whatever I buy for Maddie to wear Jeanne will also get to wear. Because the clothing Rose carries are of such high quality I am able to have both of my kids wear it and then still sell it at a yard sale. Rose also has an amazing amount of beautiful clearance clothing. My sister was able to buy my nephew several items from last years winter clothing at really great prices.

If you are looking for great quality clothing that's unique and stylish look no further because here it is. Can you tell I am in love with this store?!

I'm sure you can imagine my excitement when Rose allowed me to review one of her outfits. She was so sweet. She actually allowed my daughter, Maddie, to come into the store and pick out a back to school outfit. Rose held up practically every piece of girls clothing in the store and let Maddie choose what she would like to try on. Maddie had so much fun trying on about 15 or more outfits. She was so cute modeling them all. Let me show you a few of our favorites.

































Normally I would say that it would be no problem picking out just one outfit but when you like every single outfit in the store it is so much harder. As you know some styles or colors look better on some kids then others so that made our job a little easier but not easy enough. I really loved almost everything she tried on. I think by the time we were done trying them on we were able to narrow it down to about 6 outfits. We finally got it narrowed down to two and decided we just couldn't choose just one. So Rose gave her the outfit that we thought would be best for a Back to School outfit and my Mom is buying her the other one for her Birthday. She is so excited that she gets both.

Jess, I stop in there every once in awhile and let me tell you that shopping with a very active two year old boy usually ends in a headache but I love the fact that they have a little play area. I usually buy Caleb's picture outfits there and have already bought shoes there and an easter outfit.
