Herbert and Stella ~ it’s a love story

After a two-week Easter break I’ve been eager to get writing again and share with you a post I’ve had waiting in the wings about a gorgeous local boutique.  Those of you with kids 0-7yrs in your world one way or another, it’s a must-know about if you don’t already.
Herbert and Stella is a children’s clothing and toy boutique in Ilkley, West Yorkshire which also sells everything through its online shop.
It reminded me of ‘The shop around the corner’ from the film ‘You’ve got Mail’ when I first discovered it… Bit of a ‘where do I start’ place, because there’s so many lovely things that catch your eye when you enter.
The shop is owned by the beautifully-spirited Christine who, with no experience of running a shop, decided to open on a whim after struggling to find the kind of clothes she wanted to dress her daughter in when she was born.  Three years on the shop has grown, Christine stocks more brands year-on-year, with a ever-increasing online clientele.
The brands are diverse.  Locals and Grandparents popping in to buy ‘a something’ for the grandkids, especially love Frugi, Lily and Sid and Mayoral.  Visitors from Leeds, York and up-and-coming nearby towns go crazy for the quirkier brands seen on the celebs kids like Beau Loves, Bobo Choses, Bang Bang Copenhagen, Mini Rodini, Molo and Soft Gallery all of which have a huge online (almost cultish), following.

Clothes start at newborn and go up to a size seven.  As for the toys… we’re all big kids at heart right?
Herbert and Stella appeals because it is a shop born out of one persons style of love.  Whenever a place is that – people cannot help but be attracted!
Visit the shop in Yorkshire or online here.
