About Us

A Family-owned Business Serving Your Family

It was 1952 when The Original Childrens Shop first opened its doors for business in the Laurelhurst neighborhood of Seattle. Purchased by the Etherington/Kucher family in 1989, the shop has been residing in the historic business district of the beautiful Madison Park neighborhood for the last 30 years. Additionally, we are so excited to announce that in October of 2020, we expanded our shop and opened a second location in the historic downtown of Wenatchee, WA. The shop is presently owned and operated by Kellie Lillybridge- the third generation in her family to carry on this family tradition!

We aim to provide the littlest citizens of Seattle, Wenatchee and beyond with exceptional, quality clothing.  Many of our selections are European specialty brands or reputable American companies that you can only find in small retail boutiques such as ours. We love to support organic, sustainable, women-owned, mom-run businesses whenever we can.  Whether you prefer modern looks or simply enjoy the classics, we have something for everyone, including expectant mothers!

Let us help you select your baby's coming home outfit, your granddaughter's holiday dress, your child's back to school wardrobe, and more.  We gladly take orders over the phone, provide complimentary gift wrapping and will ship anywhere in the world upon request.
