We finally had a cold day in Texas a couple of weeks ago, and I was scrambling to find clothes that would keep the kids warm. It was time to go through the Kids Clothes and get out their fall clothing. As I went through Faith’s wardrobe, I realized that most of her long sleeved tops were graphic tees. She needed some pretty blouses to update her Fall Wardrobe.
I was thrilled to find #CookiesKids and shop their Fall Fashion. Cookie’s Kids has seven stores in the New York City area in Bronx, Brooklyn and Jamaica as well as Cookie’s Kids online, which is where we did our shopping.
Here is a little history about Cookie’s Kids: In 1972, a young man named Cookie and his brother Marvin went into business together. They rented a 1600 square foot store in Jamaica, Queens, fixed it up, bought inventory and Summer and Fall, and opened a day after Thanksgiving with a full stock of holiday toys. The toys were a success and they put the extra money toward buying children’s clothing for the next season. When that did well, they bought more clothing. The business was on it’s way.
As the brothers Cookie, Marvin and Sonny, who had come in as a third partner in the business, began to open new stores in new locations, inventory expanded. Besides the latest fashions, our customers wanted shoes, toys, backpacks and accessories and we were prepared to deliver.
By the late 1990’s there were six superstores throughout the NYC area, and though they previously had different names, by that time they were all named Cookie’s Kids. Also in the late ’90s came an important addition to Cookie’s Kids’ inventory: school uniforms. It was the steady success in uniform sales that paved the way for founding CookiesKids.com in 2007, which originally sold uniforms and soon after the entire Cookie’s Kids Inventory.
The first thing I noticed when I arrived at the site was the coupon code for free shipping! I’m always looking for a good deal! Faith and I browsed the site together. She is becoming such a sweet young lady and developing her own style. She was instantly decisive about the ones she liked. I was proud and a little sad to see her choosing her own clothes. It seems like just yesterday I was picking out all of her clothes for her. You can see all of our favorites in our Google+ album.
One of the things that made shopping online easier was the Alva Kids feature:
I thought this was so cool. When we found the pair of jeans we wanted, we just clicked the Alva Kids icon and went to the above link. We just filled out Faith’s weight and measurements, and then it would tell us what size in that garment we needed. How fun is that!
We placed our order and anxiously awaited it’s arrival!
I think the “Emma” knit top is so petty and feminine.
Faith loved the layered look of the “Heart of Mine” top. This is the top that Faith chose. It is so cute on her.
