We have had the absolute pleasure of working with Macaire from Half Pint Shop. I love it when I come across shops with strong, confident women running them. I'm sure you know by now, but here at Urban Cub we love to support small businesses.
Here is a little bit about Macaire, and the shop.
We also got some amazing little shadow puppets from her and we have enjoyed playing with them (on multiple occasions) and having them displayed around the house.
I’m Macaire, owner of Half Pint Shop, and my husband and I live in Chicago where we’re raising our son Eyan.
I’ve always had a love for clothing but I never knew I’d fall head over flats (Heels? Yeah right!) in love with children’s fashion. After my son Eyan was born I started to search for playful, stylish and cool, quality clothing for my son that you didn’t see every day on the playground. Most of the clothing and toys I bought for my son ended up being purchased from smaller, unique businesses instead of big retail stores.
My shopping addiction is where the idea for Half Pint Shop began. Half Pint Shop will only carry my favorite brands and fashionable, comfortable clothing that I’d dress my own child in. If its organic the better. All of the accessories, toys and nursery décor we carry are items we would use and decorate with in our own household. Many of the brands we find are made right here in our hometown of Chicago, either referred to us by friends or discovered at handmade craft shows. I hope to help parents discover some fun and trendy smaller brands while also stocking the more popular brands from around the world.
Before I had my son Eyan (born September 2011) I worked in social media/marketing. I've always wanted to be a small business owner though. After college (where I majored in Journalism) I even went to Floral Design school because I had a fantasy of owning my own floral shop one day. I may have not had a focus until my son was born but I think I've finally found something that I truly enjoy doing, that allows me the balance to stay-at-home with my son (and soon to be baby #2!)
