La Petite Maison

A baby boutique, home décor haven, and antiques shop rolled into one and tied with a fetching French bow, La Petite Maison spans gift-giving needs with élan. Highlights include luxury linens from Lulu DK by Matouk, Luckson crib toys, and one-of-a-kind vintage china pieces that owner Nanette Walsh collects on her annual visits to Paris (thereby saving the rest of us the airfare).
