For Everything Small and Soft..

No one’s more fun to shop for than the kids, and this little shop makes it oh so easy to revel in the “little” things. Located south of the light at Four Corners, Little Purls is a double floor boutique featuring affordably-chic children’s clothing and adorable gifts for infants, toddlers, and big kids too. The lovingly cared for historic building is a one-stop mother’s haven known for its distinctive taste and small business charm. The inside feels something like an old colonial home with whispering floor boards, exposed wood beams, and cozy nooks inviting you to wander through any way you like. Spend time marveling in the out-of-the-box product arrangements –like the old sleigh full of Hatley pajamas– then send your kids over to the giant basket of toys…shop, and be happy.

Flap Happy sun hats (turtle variety above)UPF 50+!! If you’re looking for a hat to keep out the summer sun, here it is. This one keeps their little heads and necks completely covered, and comes in many cute colors and prints for boys and girls.

Unique to Little Purls is store owner Sue Hutson‘s love for children’s literature. Sue has been at Little Purls for 26 years and has developed a commendable knack for choosing the best of everything, including books. A proud grandmother of two, her little “library” has great classics and fun newbies you and your family will love. (Sue gives great recommendations if you’re looking for a gift, or just a new read.)

Little Purls loves classic names like See Kai Run, Emilie et Rose, Melissa and Doug, and Charlie Rocket. For  a full list of their outstanding brands, visit
