After the Towne Fair kids’ shop closed in 2000, lifelong Columbia County resident Amanda Hummel saw a niche in the blossoming community of Hudson that needed to be filled. In December 2010 the former elementary school teacher opened her dream store on busy Warren Street to the delight of hip parents everywhere. In addition to all the green baby accoutrements a modern parent could need — cloth diapers, amber necklaces, Moby wraps — the store is stocked with stylish clothes (newborn to size 12); developmentally appropriate, earth-friendly toys; and a vast array of locally made items, like christening gowns, wooden swings, and custom room décor. “Buying local is a great way to be eco-friendly,” says Hummel. The store also is a hub for local families, hosting monthly La Leche League meetings, sign language and music classes, and playgroups.
