French clothing for kids

Photos of Prince George and Princess Charlotte show two beautiful children dressed in well-pressed shorts and cable sweaters, and angelic dresses and hair bows. Quite the antithesis of many American kids, wearing baggy ripped jeans, rhinestone-bedazzled leggings and sweatshirts emblazoned with adult sayings. Enter Petite Cabane, a new children’s store of personally-curated children clothing with a timeless feel from France, England, Denmark, and other European countries. To be located in downtown Birmingham at 205 E. Maple Road in the former Barbara Boz Jewelry location (which has since moved right across the street), owners Carrie Martin and Samantha Foster of Birmingham are planning a March opening, just in time for parents to attire their little ones for spring and Easter. Martin said she used to live in Europe, and noted that parents there prefer a more classic style of dressing for their tots. Petite Cabine, which means “little cabin” in French, will carry clothing, select items of children’s home décor and toys.
