The Happy Factory

Alas, The Happy Factory closed summer 2011. There is still some fun things in Hillsborough for families, though, check out our By City page.

There's a new shop in town. In my town: Hillsborough. Just opened less than 2 weeks ago now, The Happy Factory located right on Churton Street is very cute and a nice addition to downtown Hillsborough.

The shop sells gift items, specialty items, but mostly clothes.

The gift items were cute. They have an area devoted to newborns with beautiful blankets, wall art, and plush toys.

One of the things I found particularly unique about this store is that the clothing sold is from newborn to size 8. That's a huge range! Most of these boutique stores tend to stop at 3T size. This has clothes for the older kids, too.

As with any great kid's clothing store, there is a place for the kids to play while parents shop. Actually, 2 places! There is an indoor area with toys for all ages. But outside is the mecca: a fenced in area with tables, ride-on toys, and more.

This is a great little family owned local business. I look forward to seeing The Happy Factory grow their inventory even more, and am glad they are part of the community.

The Happy Factory is awesome! Has a variety of beautiful clothing and other items. My daughter really liked the room decor and the section for the kid's bathroom with embroidered towel and washcloth collections (also has tub toys etc)too. There's even an organic section! It is such a bright and cheerful place to shop and completely child and parent friendly. The owner has thought of every last detail. Gift wrapping or gift bags are available as well as greeting cards. Talk about one stop shopping! So convenient. This is a place that both parents and kids will love. We did! Highly recommend this store.
