 It’s not unusual to see kids in our shop with their moms - that’s why we occasionally carry some French nighties for them, too. We want this to be a wholesome and welcoming place for people in the neighborhood where everyone can get over any embarrassment associated with lingerie. It’s no big deal. (These are the customers of the future. We have to teach them to shop locally, not just online.)
