Twinkle Twinkle Little One Grand Opening Party (this is something to see my friends)
There are many places to buy baby furnishings and gifts in the greater Chicago area. But they are not all created equal. I wish that I could go back and tell myself (as a first-time mom) to shop at Twinkle Twinkle Little One. I made many, many mistakes when I looking to outfit my nursery when I was expecting my daughter in 2004. Rachel Glasson, owner of the two Chicago-area Twinkle Twinkle Little One locations would have been a great resource to me as I was investing large sums of money on very girly, babyish pieces of furniture and baby gear in anticipation of my daughter's arrival. Rachel and her staff would have been able to help me select items that would have been great in my baby's nursery but also could have easily transitioned to other rooms in my house once my babies outgrew them. She would have advised that I not buy everything in pink (because my future children may be boys -- which turned out to be the case). Bottom line: Rachel and her Twinkle Twinkle Little One staff can help you make smart choices in terms of nursery, registry and gift purchases. And they have a price point that will work for you...
