A parents’ paradise in Edwards

Vail Alive/Bret HartmanKids' Cottage owner Carol Warner shows off some of stock in her Edwards store.

When you walk into Kids’ Cottage in Edwards, you feel warm and cozy. You become instantly surrounded in a friendly, laid-back atmosphere while your eyes wander over fine children’s clothing, educational toys, books and baby gifts.

Located on Second Street in the Riverwalk Shopping Center, Kids’ Cottage is nothing like the typical toy or clothing stores for kids. It’s all about being unique and offering something different. The clothes are nice-looking and comfortable and are not something you’d find all your child’s friends wearing. The colors are rich, the fabric thick and the stitching perfect.

Carol Warner started Kids Cottage in Eagle, then relocated to Edwards. She offers all sorts of clothes for girls up to size 6X and boys up to size 4T.

“You won’t find things like this at a discount or big-box store,” says one Eagle parent. “The clothes for babies are magnificent.”

“I love coming here,” adds another parent from Edwards. “There is something new every week and I love the quality of the merchandise.”

Kids’ Cottage carries Heartstrings, Chicken Noodle, Zutano, Baby LuLu, Sweet Potatoes and Little Me brands among others, as well as many books and toys for infants and kids as old as 8. The toys are sturdy, the books educational and fun.

Along with that, the knowledgeable staff offers advice – if needed – for age appropriate gifts for that special kid in your life. And they gift-wrap, so all of your hard work is done for you.

Expectant mothers are encouraged to register at Kid’s Cottage.

“So many women have come in here wanting to buy for their expecting friends and don’t know what to get,” says Warner. “These women don’t want to drive to Denver and don’t want to shop online. They want to shop locally.” Kids’ Cottage is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
