Downtown Darlings is an "all girls" shop, whose product caters to the 4 to 13 year old. However, if you love pink, the shine of crystals, and the luxuriousness of fine fabrics, then this is a space that any girl will love from 2 to 99. The store is filled with products from the traditional stuffed animals with a twist, to unique room accessories of vinly wall graphics, interesting picture holders/frames and piggy banks as well as fun headphone, iPod and cell phone aceessories: the list goes on and on.
My inspiration came from a trip that my husband and I took in November of 2010 to Charleston, SC. I came across this tiny shop that carried nothing but 18" doll clothing, which I knew my girls would love. I thought to myself, "What a great idea!" However, as I began to develop the concept in my mind, I knew that I wanted to create a store that would offer so much more. So not only did I expand the product base, I created a space where girls of any age could have a party of any kind. I have transformed an old downtown space to contain tons of great gifts as well as two fun, magical areas where you can enjoy various "themed" parties with your closest friends.
I, Marcia Frelke, the owner, have tried to create a unique shop for girls that offers many items that you can't find in any other places nearby, or even in town for that matter. My passion is interior design! I have been called a "fabric-a-holic" by my friend who does all of my fabrication. It is my hope that when you enter the store that you will be wowed by the space, enchanted with the product, and excited to have a party (or two or three) of your very own with us some day.
Please come see us soon!
