Sometimes ideas are born while in the driveway drinking wine with a neighbor. This one started back in March when local moms of boys (and shopper extraordinaires!), Annee Zalkind and Tamara Dean, were talking about how there are too many cutsie and preppy-looking boy clothes in the stores these days. Why is little girl shopping so exciting and boy shopping so...............NOT?
So they headed to LA to meet with vendors and quickly ramped up their website, Third Street Threads, to bring an urban look of one-stop-shopping to your little hipster dudes. The focus is an online boutique feel of just boys clothes and accessories. They have an eye for things moms and boys love from brands like Hurley, Quicksilver, DC, and Desigual (from Spain).
Shipping and gift wrapping is always FREE, and right now there is a special discount code "holiday15" you can use through the end of December or "save10" after that. Annee and Tamara have noticed some of their local fans appreciate their personal concierge service too. If you live in the Kirkland area, feel free to contact them about coming over to Third Street or to try things on or have your items dropped off at your place. If you would like to host a party, they also offer trunk shows for a relaxed shopping experience.
Being the mother of a boy myself, it is good to see this local start-up amping up the fun in boys clothes shopping! ~j
