Paul Mosley, the owner of the fantastic Laguna Colony decor and jewelry store in downtown Laguna, has just opened his third store in Fashion Island – Newport Colony Baby & Paperie.
I stopped in to take a few photos for his coming-soon website and I have to say – not even being a Mommy but being a regular baby shower and birthday gift buyer – this is the coolest baby/toddler store I’ve ever seen in the area. Paul simply has a gift.
For starters, he makes it super easy. Walk in and you’ll find PINK of everything imaginable on one side and its matching BLUE on the other with a neutral zone right in the middle.
Seven European designers with two Cali-based designers provide all the clothing options, and the toys, gifts and decor are first-class all around. He has all the baby cards and gift wrap you could possibly need, and the store wraps at your request, too.
Beyond that, though, Paul has the largest collection of cards around for ANY event and ANY age person. Racks of cards fill three walls in the back half of the store, and even the venerable boxed holiday cards are stacked and ready for those amazingly organized people who have already finished most of their holiday shopping for the year, too. (Sadly, I am never one of those people.)
Check it out the next time you’re at Fashion Island – it’s on the new outside perimeter just down from Macy’s by the valet.
