Our new favorite shop: Advice from a Caterpillar

On Saturday Joaquin and I had a date with his favorite aunt Maria and we discovered the most amazing kids shop, ADVICE FROM A CATERPILLAR on Price Street in Rosedale, we had so much fun we didn't want to leave! the service was amazing, aside from the beautiful product (we want to buy everything!) Sisters Emily & Elizabeth Dyer who own the shop are lovely and made us feel so welcomed, there is a banquette in the back were you can lounge with your baby and have espresso, those girls thought of everything! there is a great changing table in the super luxurious bathroom, we can't wait to go back, oh and Joaquin loves his new toy =)
