Dedicated to supporting soon-to-be and new moms, Eco Chic Baby brims with a wide range of products for maternity, childbirth, babies, and young children. Its selection of cloth, bio, or Fabergé diapers helps parents save money while young ones stay comfy and fashionable, and its organic vitamins and super foods spur healthy growth in children. Eco Chic Baby also keeps tikes safe with a selection of high-quality strollers, high chairs, and car seats. Made in the United States or sold through fair-trade agreements, the shop's goods are eco-friendly and nontoxic, and many of them are handmade locally.
In addition to purveying baby supplies, Eco Chic Baby hosts classes throughout the week, such as Pilates and yoga, and maintains optional onsite childcare for moms who wish to attend. For new parents needing time to themselves, Thursday morning R & R sessions boast complimentary tea, pastries, live Raffi performances, and a lending library for relaxing readings of War and Peace.
Located on Railroad Square in Santa Rosa, OldTown Furniture and Furniture Depot outfit homes and businesses with classic pieces of high-quality bedroom, dining, and living-room furniture. True to its name, OldTown Furniture epitomizes a simpler, bygone age: it's a family business passed down from generation to generation, with handmade solid-wood furniture and no fully automated robot sales staff. Patrons marvel at traditional handiwork in Amish furniture such as cherry or oak tables and chairs and admire the functional, handsome construction of American-made entertainment centers and office furnishings. Vintage signs brighten up dens and offices, and bedroom sets from collections such as Americana and Edwardian grace chambers with elegance.

Preventative measures ensure existing air-conditioning and furnace setups run smoothly and efficiently, with dust-busting vent cleanings and thorough multipoint inspections.
