Colorado Springs Gazette’s Gold Winner for Best Children's Clothing Store of 2011 and 2010, Recess stocks quality preowned children’s clothing and new items handmade by local artisans for kids size 0–10.
Name brands such as Gymboree, Baby Lulu, and Gap drape over wood hangers throughout the cozy boutique, with daily additions reflecting changing trends and moon phases. Only displayed if in perfect condition, shirts, shoes, and dresses are generally priced around half of their original retail value. Doll up a wee one in fine fluff with locally made tutus ($10–$14) and hairclips ($3–$6), or prepare your nephew for his first play-date with a handsome beanie ($6–$10). Flashdance ambitions are catalyzed in newborns with a warm pair of BabyLegs ($10–$12), displayed beneath chandeliers in Recess’s repurposed, sky-blue shingled Victorian house.
