We hope you’re enjoying the first signs of spring- the buds on the trees, the few extra hours of daylight, and the warmer temperatures (most days anyhow!). New life is happening all around at this time of year- including new babies! A lot of our regular customers have been in lately showing off their new little ones and, our own Sappho is expecting her third child in just a few weeks!! Needless to say, it’s an exciting time here at henhouse!
Are any of you expecting a new family member soon?
Well, if you happen to be in need of a gift for your own little one or for someone you know who is expecting, we have some really sweet things in the shop!
We love, love, LOVE all of the baby clothes from Parade. Cuteness aside, these outfits are made by a Canadian company from 100% organic cotton, and are pesticide and chemical-free. They are safe for your baby and our environment! Sizes range from 0-3 months up to 12-18 months.
Babies and food…things get messy! These Mally bibs will do the trick! Made in Canada from 100% baby safe leather, these bibs wash easily with the wipe of a cloth and will last for years! They have a unique adjustable magnet clasp, so you can widen it as your baby grows. These make a really great gift!
For most new parents, sleep is a sought after luxury. Luna Lullaby swaddling blankets can help! Swaddling is the ancient technique of snugly wrapping your baby in a way that simulates the feeling of being in the womb. It’s soothing for babies, and it can help them sleep longer and more comfortably.
Everyone needs a life-long pal, and these sock monkeys are just that. Each monkey is lovingly hand made in Nova Scotia. They come in all shapes and sizes, and have their own unique personalities! We think they make a great toy for the young as well as the young at heart!
Thanks for reading! Visit us this weekend- it’s supposed to be great sunny weather (read: perfect for shopping at local small businesses!!)
