An adorable annex to our women’s clothing store, Merrick’s Munchkins houses a selection of the most beautiful baby, toddler & tot clothing, accessories & gift items that you’ll find anywhere.
Presided over by my daughter Anne Mavis and Bea Moore (a French woman of impeccable taste), each item we carry is chosen for its quality. Whether it’s a “soft as a baby’s bottom” hand-woven,newborn blanket, a hand-smocked dress for a toddler’s first birthday or a sassy skirt for a 6-year- old, you’ll find something perfect at Merrick’s Munchkins.
Here are a few of our favorites:
Tiny Bubbas & Le Fromage
Little boys have big adventures and need clothes that will take them there. These two wonderful designers turn out high-quality T’s, cargo shorts & pants, and rugged little sweaters that will last from season to season and delight you with their wit, whimsy and classic little-boy style.
Pam Morland hand smocked-dresses
Pam Morland’s hand-smocked dresses are a lost art. Each is authentically hand-sewn, smocked and embroidered using the finest cotton, velvet and soft pin-wale corduroy. Sizes range from 6 to 24 months and in each case Pam includes a deep hem that may be let down to keep pace with your little one’s growth. One of our most popular styles is the “1st Birthday” dress with a cake and one candle. On baby’s second birthday, Pam will add a second candle! These are truly an heirloom gift to be cherished and passed down from generation to generation.
For the little prince or princess in your life, Isabel Garreton designs exquisite christening gowns and special occasion clothing suitable for weddings and red carpets, as well as luxurious coats and adorable play clothing. Her marine blue dress with its school of embroidered fish was a unanimous staff favorite this year.
Our treasure trove of small things includes the inimitable “ballet shoe” baby socks, lovely hair bows in a dizzying array of sizes, colors and patterns, pretty burp cloth packages, nifty bibs, the Sleep Sheep and Bear, and the piece de resistance, the Baby Bunch “bouquet” of onesie, T’s, hat and socks (a favorite of Angelina and Brad), snugglies and toys galore!
