Why I like it: The owner Jolyne is very passionate and she is always on the hunt for fab finds. In fact, she started her lovely shop because her “vintage collection of baby clothes became out of control” – yeah, made me smile too – She curates new toys and apparel from cool brands such as Bobo Choses and Mini Rodini, as well as true vintage gems. You’ll definitely find something stylish and unique for your little ones!

Since 1955, our California-based company has been glamorizing residences, hotels, and businesses across the world. Lulu & Georgia is named for my grandfather, Lou, and my father, George.

Lulu & Georgia is for the next generation of trend-seekers. It’s for the modern woman: the 9-5er, the housewife, the artist, the executive, and the one who’s all four. Glamorous, bohemian chic, vintage eclectic or cutting edge, Lulu & Georgia offers a bit of shine for every personality.”
