There's plenty for both kids and their parents to discover at Mac & Madi, a boutique graced with the presence of clothing, toys, and accessories for style-conscious children. When out hunting and gathering goods, the staff stresses quality over quantity. As a result, the shop isn't crammed with hundreds of options, it's stocked with an easy-to-browse assortment of apparel and gear chosen for being unique and reasonably priced. The shop’s wares cater to babies, boys up to age 7, and girls as old as 16—swaddles, onesies, and burpies come from brands such as Aden + Anais and Mystic Beach, both of which can help babies assert fashion supremacy in the playpen. Tutus embellished with flowers and sequins encourage girls to express their longing for fruit snacks through interpretive dance, and a rotating collection of shirts emblazoned with characters from Spider Man and Star Wars reassure boys as they nurture their own fledgling force. Recently, Mac & Madi opened a tween-girl room where clothing and accessories from brands such as Quiksilver, Roxy, and Flowers by Zoe let budding fashionistas flourish.
Mac & Madi also offers an array of award-winning toys and gear, such as stylish diaper bags. Volumes from the "100 Best Books of All Time" list such as Where is Baby's Belly Button? answer questions that have vexed biologists for generations.
