A shopping post from Katie today you may want to read before you go buying Easter clothes at Target...just sayin'...:
Easter is just around the corner, and we love cute Easter clothes in our house.  Okay, I love them, but I’m the one who dresses H.  Therefore, I have to tell you about Shutterbugs in Raleigh, just across Oberlin Road from Cameron Village.

Shutterbugs is a small boutique with adorable, high end children’s clothes  (think Little English, Sara Louise, Luigi, Kissy Kissy, Bella Bliss, Vive La Fete, etc.).  If you need clothes or shoes for a special occasion, or some super cute clothes for preschool, it is a fabulous stop!  Of course they also have really cute pajamas and shoes as well as some gift items. 

The shop is attached to Burnie Batchelor Photography so it isn’t huge, but they have a very good selection and provide impeccable customer service. 

In fact, let’s talk a little more about that customer service.  Not only are they always more than willing to look for items they actually appeased my cranky son while I was trying to finish my transaction.  He started crying so they whipped out a pack of Annie’s fruit snacks (they did ask me if he could have them first).  To this day we drive buy and he says, “Stop, Mommy!  Nice lady has special treats!” Talk about a smart business move on their part.

Of course, there is the matter of price.  For these gorgeous boutique clothes prices can get expensive.  The good news is that when they have a sale, they really have a sale.  I have gotten incredible items for H at super prices, you just have to go in and check things out frequently to catch the sales.  Or make sure you keep a check on their website (see below). 

In terms of logistics, make sure you keep your eyes peeled the first time you go as it is very easy to miss.  Also, there is very limited parking in front, and it can be a little tricky getting out as you need to back out onto busy Oberlin Road.  We always park in the back or in lots behind the buildings close behind and make the short trek to the store.

Writing this has me thinking about a little Easter shopping now...hmmm...  And, by the way, they have an Easter Egg hunt on Saturday, March 31, 10 am-12 noon.  A cute outfit for an Easter celebration?

Happy Shopping!
