I know it's April and we are a quarter of the way into 2017, BUT I feel as though I must share that...

Our son Sebastian was born, our partnership with Little Nest Portraits Montclair continues to flourish as we collaborate on design statements in their studio, we had an amazing story time with actor Frankie Faison where he read "The Book With No Pictures", the shop was written up in Essex Fells Magazine, WE WON BEST OF ESSEX 2016! GOLD in home furnishings and SILVER in children's clothing, I completed a labor of love design -the Montclair Pediatric Dental Care office <3 ..Dr. Manso is the best! We were featured by Kickee Pants (I mean, hello!!), we had an amazing block printing workshop with Akshu & Ing (amazing kids clothing), and had an awesome collab workshop for expecting mamas with Little Nest Montclair, Verdigreen Home, Montclair B.A.B.Y. and the Dumbo Doula. Someone pinch me! xo 2017 is off to a fab start and I can't wait to share more...hopefully in a more time relevant manner :)


Exciting Press!

Since opening in August, Apple Village has been reviewed in a number of publications, both online and print. 

·Baristanet writes that Apple Village is a “wonderful collection of unique and fun items. The store is beautiful, bright and spacious, allowing shoppers to browse and take their time to look at the variety of unusual items not seen elsewhere. This is definitely not the children’s department at your local big-box!”

·Apple Village was featured as a ‘buzzworthy’ new store in the September issue of Montclair Magazine, distributed to 38,000 homes in Montclair.

·We’re thrilled to be included in MommyPoppins as one of NJ’s Best Independent ‘Back to School’ Shops.
