Rock The Cradle, Denver's new, hip baby store opened at 18 South Broadway on Saturday. Families milled about, remarking on the cute-yet-edgy designs while sampling tasty treats from the Shoppe.
Owners Brian and Melissa Ball opened their store as an alternative to the treacly, pastel-laced baby stores and they've filled the racks with clothing that had many of the adults present at the opening declaring, "I want to wear that! If only it came in my size."
The store carries clothing by regional and indie designers, off-beat toys, and blank t-shirts, bibs and onesies that can be customized with a patch or iron-on design for $5.
For more information, visit www.rockthecradlebaby.net or call 303-733-3707. Store hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
