Favorite Things: The Little Ark

Treats for tots and parents



Nina Westbrook

 

Charming hardly begins to describe the new, and beautifully put together, boutique The Little Ark. You’ll find yourself wanting to linger at this special place at 6425 Avondale in Nichols Hills Plaza for a while. Unique gifts, beautiful curated clothing and gifts for the “littles” that are whimsical, as well as practical, are definitely part of the equation. The other part is just the feeling of being there – it’s quiet and relaxed and everyone is more than willing to help while giving you space to explore.


Petit Collage flash cards, $14 “Bright and cheerful cards are ideal for learning your ABCs.”; DockATot, $195 “This is a must-have for all new parents. Dock your tot in a pretty print.”; Olli Ella Luggy baskets, $80; Meri Meri organic knit dolls, $28 “Is there anything cuter than this basket? Perfectly sized for your tot to store their favorite things.”


 

“The idea came to me as I was interested and ready to make a commitment to something that I was passionate about,” says owner Nina Westbrook. That passion has paid off. “I loved the idea of having a boutique, and compiling a selective bunch of items that I loved, and I thought others would love, as well.”

Retail isn’t all The Little Ark has to offer: Classes and special events are also hosted in the beautiful space. “Each of the events and classes are held in hopes of educating, and provide a space for positive social experiences and development,” says Westbrook.


Cosabella pajama set, $130 “Classic and chic, made of the softest blend of pima cotton, you won’t want to take these off.”; Orangeheat Thunder Up tee, $40 “Our best-seller in organic cotton is perfect for the tiniest fans.”


Whether you are there to find something for a friend or take a class with your child, you will feel a positive connection. “I think the most important thing about the way you do business is just to connect with your customers, and make sure you go out of your way to provide them with a happy and helpful shopping experience. If people can leave here feeling good, whether they purchased something, or not, I think we’ve done our job.” And a job well done it is.


etúHOME serving board, $150, and glass dome, $150 “Made from repurposed material, these unique pieces will accent your home beautifully.”; Wild photicular book, $26 “Each page looks like a mini-movie – fun for all ages.”; Blabla heart pillow, $64 “Made by hand with 100 percent natural fibers, it makes a fun addition to any room.”
