Meet Dawn Price Baby, the winner of our Shout Out contest. Kissy Kissy fan, Audrey S., is also a huge fan of this Washington, D.C.-area retailer that's why she selected them as her favorite place to shop for Kissy Kissy. So we took a few minutes to find out what makes DPB a great place for both new and experienced moms, and we found it has a lot to do with the store's curated selection of clothing, books, toys & everything in-between that save moms both time and money. They're also a great place to shop for gifts. The stores' experienced sales people can help shoppers select the best items, and they offer gift wrapping to make the purchase special.
Find out more about the store below, and visit them in one of their four locations in Capitol Hill, Georgetown, the Reston Town Center in Reston, Virginia, and the Mosaic District in Fairfax, Virginia.
What advice would you give to a first-time mom to be who’s overwhelmed picking out all of the things she’ll need for baby?
Don’t be overwhelmed. Every baby is different and you may not need some of the recommended things on baby’s list—the list is only a suggestion. So, don't buy everything at once. When the baby arrives, you will figure out what you need or want and then you can make a buying choice. Don’t sweat the small stuff!
What do you love most about working with new moms?
One of the most exciting times in your life is becoming a new mom and we love being a part of that journey. We love being there with the pregnant moms-to-be buying all of their baby needs and then weeks later coming back with their newborn. Since we focus on infant to size 6, that journey continues through toddler and young child. It is amazing to see it all happen.
How do you decide if you’ll bring a new product into your store?
We are always listening to our customers and asking questions. Most new moms are always researching the latest and greatest products. So, if they have suggestions we listen, we research, we test and decide whether the product fits into what we are offering to our customers as a whole. Moreover, we look at our various product offerings and determine whether we are lacking in a certain area or need to freshen one up.
What do you love about Kissy Kissy?
Kissy Kissy is always one of the first "go to’s" when recommending to our customers and they always agree! We love that it’s so simple and soft. The designs are always beautiful and fun. Kissy Kissy is easily paired with other items in our store, which allows us to offer a wide range of beautiful gift ideas. Kissy Kissy is very versatile and offers a wide selection of prints and colors for almost any taste.
As a mom, what’s your motto for getting through your busy days?
“If plan A doesn’t work, don’t worry the alphabet has 25 more letters, try to roll with it.” With kids you can’t always have a set plan, something is always going to come up... it’s inevitable.
