This month we are featuring 2 businesses for our Feature Friday Spotlight. Enfants Tricotes & Teeny Bee Boutique are 2 local businesses that provide baby clothes and baby gear.
Enfants Tricotés was started by Dena Stoll with one simple desire: to create beautiful, high-quality knitwear for her son! When she went searching for knitwear in stores she found cheap yarns, poor quality knitwear with little variety, and a dependence on animals. She has been knitting for over a decade and wasn’t seeing the quality she was looking for. Instead, she wanted something that reflected her son’s innocence and youth: adorable, not cutesy. Enfants Tricotés timeless pieces stand out from the normal, cookie cutter mall clothes. High quality yarns, many of which are also spun and dyed in the U.S., which wash well and stand the test of time. Knitwear is their specialty, rather than just an afterthought. Enfants Tricoté has hand-knit, made in the US, vintage-inspired knitwear for children ages 3-6 months up to 4T. Their unique clothing perfect for those special occasions and family portraits. Here are some photos of some of their knits.

Teeny Bee Boutique was started by Kristie who is a mother of 2 and wanted to have a store for mothers to shop and pick up things that would make life with children easier and kids happy! Teeny Bee has a carefully curated selection of clothes and baby goods designed to help every mom through those first few years of life. The boutique seeks to create a warm and welcoming environment for moms and babies, offering free music classes, playdates, and breastfeeding support groups. It is the perfect place to shop when searching for a unique gift, items made by local artisans, or a great toy for your little one. You can feel the warm, hands-on environment and the feeling of being part of a community when you shop there.
It was a happy coincidence when Kristie and Dena, both former dance teachers who’d taught at the same studio in St Paul, reconnected and discovered they were launching complimentary businesses at the same time. They have been able to support each other in their businesses. We LOVE hearing stories like these!!
Teeny Bee offers free shipping if you order online or you can shop at the store locally in St Paul.
