You might've heard rumblings about a very special event we're hosting with hip family mag ParentFolk...and now it's time to tell you more! On Thursday 4th May we're joining forces to welcome Scamp and Dude founder Jo Tutchener-Sharp and her beautiful brand to Manchester with an intimate evening soiree at our Chorlton shop. We are so looking forward to this unique influencer event which will see Jo take guests on a journey through her incredible life, from high-flying beauty PR to the moment when life-threatening brain operation made her evaluate everything that was important in her life. Pinkster Gin will be bar hosts for the night and will create 3 delicious cocktails for us to enjoy as we get to know Jo and swoon over her amazing collection. A limited number of tickets will be made available via the link in our profile. We can also confirm that Mamas Collective MCR will be joining in with the Our Kid X Scamp & Dude launch shenanigans with a daytime event on Friday 5th May, details to be released soon...

It's amazing how a daffodil in bloom and a show of sunshine switches our shopping mode. This week we've seen the influence of summer in our customer's purchases and this Tobias and the Bear short-sleeved onesie has been our most popular item. Lovely and lightweight with a graphic foxy design motif that is perfect for sniffing out fun times. Available in the Chorlton shop and online.

Join us for a morning of sale madness on Friday 3rd February as we clear the decks ahead of our new Spring/Summer collection launches. We thought we'd combine a good old fashioned coffee morning with the deliciousness of up to 40% off our remaining sale stock. Brands to include Tobias&the Bear, The Bright Company, Little Green Radicals, Boys&Girls plus some odd and ends from our archive which will be even more bargainous owing to their old season status! This is a one-off not to be missed event. Complimentary tea and coffee will be served to bring a social air to proceedings. We'll post shots of our star buys over the coming days. Elbows at the ready...!

Our Kid is Crowned Best New Store for Childrenswear in Prestigious
CWB Independent Retail Awards

Chorlton based retailer Our Kid has won the CWB Independent Retail Awards’ Best New Store category for 2016.

Hosted by leading industry trade title Childrenswear Buyer (CWB) magazine, which is dedicated exclusively to the childrenswear industry, the national competition celebrates performance, innovation and excellence in the children’s retail sector.

Established in Chorlton in June 2016, by local mum’s Kate Heaton, Laura Day and Tess Grindle, Our Kid went head-to-head with entrants from across the country before being named Best New Store of 2016 by an expert judging panel.

The boutique, which was judged on everything from customer service through to visual merchandising, specialises in branded clothing for children alongside toys, interiors and gifts. It also incorporates a family café serving locally produced coffee, tea, cakes and snacks.

Commenting on the win, Laura Turner, CWB editor and judge of the CWB Independent Retail Awards 2016, says, “Our Kid’s multi-concept, modern approach to shopping and socialising really stands out from the crowd.

“The café/communal space lends a distinct social aspect to the business, which in turn has helped it quickly and successfully integrate into the community. This, combined with a unique brand portfolio and strategic partnerships with other local business, demonstrates a progressive and inspiring independent retail business.”

Carolyn Joyce, category manager for baby and child at notonthehighstreet.com and a judge on the CWB Independent Retail Awards 2016, adds, “A clear understanding of the importance of parent influencers and social media has helped to create a unique and forward-thinking concept store. It also offers a beautifully minimal website with a fashion forward feel.”

Commenting on Our Kid’s win, store co-owner Laura Day says, “To win a national retail award after only 6 months in operation is a dream come true for our business. The judge’s recognition of our efforts to immerse our brand at the heart of Manchester’s parenting community gives us a clear sign that we are on the right path. This is just the beginning for Our Kid and 2017 will see continued innovation in retail and customer delight armed with the confidence of our award-winning status.”
