We are so pleased to announce the launch of the Cool Mom Picks Boutique at the wonderful new website Great.ly. This makes us so happy, you can’t imagine; if we could have designed a retail experience ourselves, this would be it–filled with wonderful handmade and indie items from some of the most talented makers around the world, all curated by top tastemakers into boutiques. And we’re honored to be among them!

We’ve gathered up some of our very favorite products from the the maker boutiques that populate the site. Click over and you’ll find categories for kids and baby gifts (of course),accessories and jewelry (oh man, so much fabulous indie jewelry!), and plenty of decor and fun items for the home. Look around and we hope you find something you love as much as we do.

Here’s just a small peek at some of the things we’ve picked out for you:

There are some major splurges here (we are so coveting that Jane Denton artwork and Liz is dying for that Tawfick Espriella Brooklyn Bridge photographic print) along with some incredible bargains, with quite a few items under $10 or $20. And we imagine you’ll recognize a lot of Cool Mom Picks reader favorites, like fashionABLE scarves, Paloma’s Nest, Julian & Co, Le Papier Studio, and Ephiphanie bags–although plenty of the items are exclusive to our shop.

When you shop from our Great.ly boutique, you not only help to support us and our own support of small companies and emerging artist, you’re supporting these talented  makers directly. It’s one of the things we really love about this whole endeavor, plus the fact that so many respected tastemakers can help them find a new audience.

Thanks for helping us make that happen. And thanks to everyone at Great.ly for doing something so beautiful, in more ways than one.

Visit the  Cool Mom Picks Great.ly Boutique and shop our own favorite items, along with those curated from tastemakers we love including Kelly Beall, Rachel Faucett, Gabrielle Blair, and more.
