The friendly husband/wife owners of Faon have the perfect combination of knowledge to run a childrens' clothing store as they have worked in the fashion industry in NYC and have three kids.
The shop is well designed for Moms (or Dads)to shop in easily - with its ramp to get in, wide aisles for strollers, a giant playhouse for the kids to play in, huge changing room which can fit a stroller (and a doorknob above toddler height), and even an aquarium at kid-in-stroller-level at the cash.
These fashionistas have shied away from the stifling pink/blue clothing (sizes 0-7)and made sure to have green, orange, beige, gray, red or black and white in really cool styles.
They try to buy Quebec brands first (Petit Lem, Krickets) and then head for the labels that give style, quality and economy: Tea (only one in city), the European Noppies, Peekaboo Beans, Berlingot, Zutano (from Vermont)
There's a section for baby gifts: diaper bags, Ergobaby carriers (this is the brand the mammas are asking for), bibs and small toys like the hugely popular Blabla dolls.
