about dapper & dainty 


I am a former speech-language pathologist turned stay at home mom and have three children ages 6, 9, and 12.  As a mom of three, I dread the chore of going through the kids closets at the end of every season.  It is so much work and on top of it, I am sad that my kids have outgrown some of my favorite outfits, many of which were barely worn! 

I have always loved the idea of consignment stores- parents have the opportunity of selling clothes that are still in good shape and also can also save on clothes shopping and get great deals on name brands.  I have felt for a while that my area really needed a good children’s consignment shop.  In addition, I am a seamstress
and thought it would be a great place to sell some of my unique hand-made children’s items.   

Recently, on a whim, I set up an appointment to see a retail space in Linthicum.  I fell in love with the charm of the location and knew it would be the perfect spot to open my store.  I talked to my family about it and with their support decided to open Dapper & Dainty! 

Dapper & Dainty is really a dream come true for me and I hope all the time and energy I have put in to making my dream a reality will shine through when you visit the store!
