Duck Duck Goose
LE: Tell us your story! What led you to open your boutique?
SR: This has always been a lifelong dream of mine! I have been passionate about children’s clothes since I was dressing my baby dolls as a little girl. After having children of my own, I realized that my favorite brands were not well represented in Columbia. I started small with an online shop that started on my dining room table. After such a positive response, I decided that opening a brick and mortar was the next step!
LE: What do you love about being a small business owner?
SR: I love helping moms who are in the same stage of life that I am – helping to dress their little ones in pieces that they love and will cherish forever, but also helping make their lives easier. I love the relationships that I’ve built with our customers and being a small part of special moments in their children’s lives.
LE: What makes Duck Duck Goose stand out?
SR: We offer a personalized shopping experience and try our best to give our customers everything they need. We also offer local deliveries for customers who live within a five-mile radius of our shop. We are the go-to shop in Columbia for expectant mothers and we offer our registrants private events so that we can provide them with one-on-one assistance.
LE: When it comes to products, what is your favorite season and why?
SR: Spring! I love the bright and cheerful colors. The shop is light and airy and happy in the spring!
LE: What is your favorite Little English collection or piece?
SR: Oh, this is easy!! Crocheted Playsuits. They are so versatile and truly a year-round piece. We encourage every new mom to add at least one (or two) to their registry along with the coordinating sweater. No matter what time of year you have a baby, a crochet play suit is a wardrobe must-have!
LE: Why is it important to you to have classic children's clothing available in your boutique?
SR: Children grow so quickly and should be dressed in classic clothes for as long as possible! We hope to provide our customers with classic pieces that can be passed on to future generations.
