Hi new moms! We hope that you and baby are doing well. At this point, your baby is growing like a weed and you’re feeling the itch to dress them in some new gear. The team here at ShoreBread loves to support local shops for so many different reasons. The first, of course, is to support our local economy. These shops are owned and operated by local moms just like you! The second reason we love to shop local is that we find so many cute and stylish pieces that you won’t find in the big box stores. We know that your kid truly is one of a kind and he or she will be dressed like it, too!

Heart of Gold Kids: 27 N Main Street | Berlin, MD | 443-513-4811

We cannot get enough of this boutique located on Main Street in downtown Berlin. Such cute tops and bottoms for toddlers and unique onesies for babies. Hand-made items include, but are not limited to, sweaters, hats, skirts, hair accessories and more. Love that muslin swaddle that you received at your baby shower? Good news! They also make these in crib sheets which can be found at Heart of Gold Kids. This shop stocks more than just baby gear, though. Fun gifts for big brother and big sister are available, in addition to shirts and hats for Mom. Be sure to stop in during your next stroll through Berlin. We have tested their stroller access and you are good to go!

Kid to Kid: 2632 N Salisbury Blvd | Salisbury, MD | 443-736-7036

This store is by far our favorite consignment shop on the shore. “Clean Out & Cash In” is their motto and boy do they deliver. You can easily walk in with a tub full of clothes that are too small for your kids and walk out with a brand new (gently worn) wardrobe. Bonus, this store carries more than clothes. They offer baby gear like strollers, baby carriers, baby baths and new & used toys. For mom, they also sell maternity clothes to include pants, tops and dresses. Additionally, this is a great stop to find toys and gifts for children of all ages. This is a must stop on your next run to Salisbury.
