Those who look for great gifts for the kids in their life visit Little Lords and Ladies, a children's consignment shop in Chantilly.
Little Lords and Ladies is more than a consignment shop that offers so much more. The shop hosts numerous events; coming up is a Silhouette Portrait Event on October 26, which still has openings from 2:10 p.m. until 4 p.m. Patch caught up with owner Charlene Meny, who answered a few questions about her business. How long has Little Lords and Ladies been in business? We have been in business for over six years.
What made you decide to open your children's consignment shop? We actually looked at a franchise kids consignment shop, after viewing the information we thought we would venture on our own. Plus we have 2 boys who grow out of clothes quickly.
What are some of the featured brands in your shop? Are any of them local? Janie & jack, Gymboree, Gap, Abercrombie. We carry a variety of brand names. :) As for local we do try to support others who have at home businesses, many of our bow makers are stay at home moms. Bows and Beaus makes all of her items in the shop.
What are some popular items for fall? Costumes, winter apparel. We try to hold holiday events like: Halloween party, decorate a cookie.
What do you like about owning a small business in Chantilly? We like it that we are able to help the community and local families by helping them sell their items and employing them. Plus I would say the great people we have met.
