We just got in a load of KidRobot goodies and went straight to work building this tree of DIY Munnys and Labbits for the holiday! These are so fun to paint and make an awesome gift this holiday. Shop Kid Robot @Babesta!
We are super psyched to get the new day-glo footmuffs from our friends at 7AM Enfant. Those ready to embrace this trend head-on, go for the solid pops of fluorescent green or pink-both head-turning & statement-making, but for a more subtle effect the beige with the neon accents is the way to go. On the black Cameleon 3 special edition - these footmuffs are perfection! Shop 7AM Enfant now.
It's no big secret that I love cats!

Just wanted to give a shout out to Elyse Kroll Interiors--the mastermind behind the Babesta Threads revamp. We can't say enough about Elyse - and we give her our highest recommendation if you're looking to spruce up your home or professional space. We didn't even know we were going to revamp Babesta until Elyse came in (after we tapped her to do the consultation we "won" at the PS 234 school auction). Her ideas were great and we could see her vision in our first conversation. Our interest was immediately piqued and we decided to just go for it. Our contractor was surprised ("we're revamping the space, are you free next week!?") but somehow it all came together. (OK I say somehow, but really it was all of us working round the clock). We love her creativity and resourcefulness coupled with a great ability to listen and understand our business needs and come up with attractive solutions to address each one. She definitely captured the Babesta vibe, helping us make our miniature space much more useful while keeping it super-cool. Some of the highlights: The orange and grey accent walls, the framed t-shirt wall, the center locker-tables, the back counter made out of kitchen cabnitry. We look forward to working with Elyse again-She rocks!
So for the last couple weeks we have been closed doing a bit of sprucing up - painting, floors, lights and more! This weekend we opened our doors "softly" as we put on the finishing touches! Thought we'd share a photo with everyone, but we invite you to check it out in person!
OK, so we will be putting out a fun reading list that kids can enjoy this summer (coming soon). I remember fondly joining the library's summer reading clubs and trying to read the most books during the lazy beach days, so we're asking for recommendations from clients, friends and publishing houses on the best of the best for each age group. We'll start posting next week. But in the meantime, we thought we'd give you a snapshot of what the Babesta crew was reading this summer for the moms and dads!
*I have to credit the idea of making a staff shelf to Out of Print Books and BTW, some great OOPB tees are coming soon - we'll let you know!
