The Nutshell

Shopping with kids in tow is a Sisyphean task, especially when one’s bored and another is wreaking havoc with a purple juice pack. Enter Milton boutique the Nutshell. While Mom browses the racks of staples from Tea and Joules and formalwear from Emile et Rose and Hartstrings, Junior can peruse the trinkets on display at the adjoining Toy Chest. It’s an arrangement that parents—and their little, ahem, angels—can get behind.
