Children grow up fast, despite science's best attempts to weigh them down with apple-filled backpacks and bronze shoes. Accommodate growing kids with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of children's apparel at Poppy Tots, located in Georgetown.
Poppy Tots' assortment of new boutique fashions and gently used items appeases its diminutive patrons with affordable, high-end clothing in a wide range of styles. Little ones can chicly frolic about with a boys' Frosk T-shirt ($30) to drip ice cream on after school or a girls' romper by LoFff ($66) to emboss with the dog's muddy paw prints. The back area of Poppy Tots boasts a treasure trove of previously owned garments organized in bins based on size, gender, and Tooth-Fairy-legend susceptibility. Shoppers can clothe kiddies in gently adventurous garb such as a girls top ($6.75), an infant romper ($8), or an Oilily dress ($18). Housed in a historic limestone building erected in 1870, Poppy Tots' newly remodeled interior features wide spaces ideal for shopping while pushing a stroller, leading a child-leash, or rolling a kid-sized hamster ball.
