When David, Tatum and I moved back to Moose Jaw from Edmonton, I somewhat mourned the loss of having a huge selection of shopping that was only a short drive away. I resigned to the fact that I would either have to do most of my shopping online or suck it up and go to one of the generic stores like WalMart or Superstore. Imagine my surprise when someone mentioned to me that there was a really great maternity store in town that also had a great selection of toys, books, clothes (for both mom & baby), nursing gear and more!
Needless to say, I’ve been doing about 80% of my shopping for gifts and toys for any infants/toddlers/big kids or expectant mamas at The Bebe Bump (check out the Facebook page here) for about two years now. Breann Cole, the owner and operator of The Bebe Bump, has clearly worked hard to create an atmosphere where you can relax (there’s a section with toys and a TV just for your little ones to hang out and play!) and enjoy shopping for high quality and fashionable maternity clothes (without the hefty price tag), super-cute toys and pretty much anything an expectant, new, or seasoned mom (and dad) could need.
One of the things I love about Breann’s store is that you feel at home when you walk in. She’s the kind of store owner that will remember you and your kids the next time you come in. She takes the time to show you her products but still gives you room to browse and shop without feeling pressured into buying anything…although most of the time when I go in she doesn’t really have to do anything to get a sale out of me.
Beyond the great customer service and atmosphere of her store, the brands that she carries are well worth heading down to check them out. Here are some of my favourite brands she carries:
HOTmilk Lingere – a line of gorgeous maternity and post-partum lingerie and nursing bras. So pretty!
Prince Lionheart – really cool line of baby gear including potties, booster seats, Slumber Bear, bottles and a ton more.
Earth Mama Angel Baby – A beautiful line of USDA Certified Organic bath & body products including body butter (good for growing bellies!), baby wash and lotion, teas to help with the production of breast milk, and many more great gifts an expectant or new mother would love.
Usborne books – Awesome line of kids books ranging from books to read to your babies (sensory touch & feel) all the way up to children that are learning to read. Tatum has a few of the books and she really enjoys them.
Not only does she carry these great brands and many more in her store, there’s always cool hand-knit hats and baby apparel, amber & hazelwood necklaces, wraps and slings and a great array of unique gifts in every corner of her store. If you’re in Moose Jaw (or the surrounding area) you NEED to check out The Bebe Bump!
