Kid Friendly Footwear at Three Little Birds, an inspired collaboration! How did we come here?
In 2008, Sarah took over Again & A Gain, West Seattle’s children’s consignment center since 1995. In the humble boutique at 4832 California Ave SW, she founded Kid Friendly Footwear and for 13 years made it a destination for children’s shoes in Seattle. boots, sandals and gear for all seasons. The star-studded Google reviews say it all.
Jennifer founded Three Little Birds in 2014, starting in Morgan Junction and eventually landing at 4736 California Ave SW. She’s turned the spacious place into a charming and popular children’s consignment shop where families flock.
Then 2020 arrived. With more people staying close to home and spending their money online, the long pandemic year has been difficult for independents in the neighborhood. So Sarah and Jennifer got creative. The two women – with a shared commitment to the community and small independent businesses – came up with a savvy plan.
The stores of a feather come together and Sarah’s mission to equip our children with eco-friendly, leather-free footwear is amplified and enhanced by Jennifer’s innovative spirit and style. And both have great and experienced staff members. We’re excited to team up to make Kid Friendly Footwear at Three Little Birds an exciting and inviting shopping experience in West Seattle.
Kid Friendly Footwear is a shopping destination for families in West Seattle and all of Western Washington. Babies have taken their first steps here and thousands of happy feet have found their perfect place. The tradition continues at Three Little Birds, where Kid Friendly’s famous customer service, shoe fitting expertise and playful touch will find their new home.
Kid Friendly Footwear at Three Little Birds will continue to offer eco-friendly footwear from beloved brands. We only expect our collection to grow and improve in our new location! And since reduce, reuse, recycle is our eco-friendly mission, shoppers can count on a tempting selection of prime resale items. Long-time consignees, don’t worry: your store credit will be honored at Three Little Birds.
Come shop at any of our stores through October 31 as we complete this exciting transition.
