There'll be Swingin', Swayin' and Records Playin', Dancin' in the Store

Cupcake Jenna

I visited last week after a long period of being away and I couldn't believe how great the store looks. Everything a kid could need for Fall was there, plus some. When I was looking around, a song came on that brought me back to a day, years ago, when I was working in the store alone on a rainy and gloomy afternoon. A man came in, probably in his 70s, and needed help picking out a gift for his grand-daughter. This same song started to play then. It's fromNew Orleans Playground by Putumayo, where swing music is combined with kid sounds and voices to make a great kid-friendly CD. When this song came on, the guy told me how he used to always dance to swing music when he was younger. I made the mistake of telling him that I took a few swing dance lessons in high school. He proceeded to convince me to dance with him... in the middle of the store! I tried to convince him otherwise at first, saying it had been years and I have always had two left feet. My pleading didn't work, so we danced. I was horrible, but he was nice and lied, saying I was just fine. For being such a slow and cloudy day, I will always remember him lifting my spirits. I'm pretty sure I haven't swing danced since. It's funny how little moments like that stay with you.

Great Experience

Our visit to your adorable store was a treat. My two and a half granddaughter had never been properly measured for shoes before. The sales woman who waited on us was very sweet and after measuring Ruby’s feet brought out 5 pairs of shoes to try. The shoes are well made, comfortable and easy for Ruby to put on all by herself.

Darling dress

Granddaughter loves this.

Cozy and cute

Perfect for my 6mo for the cold Fall mornings. It’s thin enough for her not to overheat but thick enough to keep her warm. I purchased size 6-9 month… it’s a little big on her now but still fits and she will be able to grow into it and wear it through winter

Cutest dress ever!

What an uplifting morning, choosing among adorable and distinctive dresses for my newest family member! And the staff helped me add bows and tights and all the little extras that make shopping at Cupcake so much fun. My niece is thrilled, and MacKenzie will look darling when she gets big enough. ( I always buy for those later months OUT there a bit!) Great experience, and I will go back because the clothing is so tasteful and not at all the latest fad.

These are dresses I mailed away to granddaughters, and grandnieces and there hasn't been enough time to receive feedback. I know that from all other outfits I have sent to them each time they were loved and thought they were wonderful quality and beautiful designs.
