Today's book inspiration is local favorite Goodnight Missoula, written by Laura Timblo and Linda Giammona-Eggers and illustrated by Molly Clevenger. The children's book is written through the eye's of a child to capture the wonder and magic of the Missoula Valley, highlighting exactly what we love!
If you're an in-the-know Missoula local, you know all about the twice-annual alternative arts Made Fair – but did you know that La Stella Blu carries many items from popular Made Fair vendors year-round in our store? For new parents who know Missoula, Goodnight Missoula, and handmade items from Montana is where it's at!
If you've ever stopped to compliment a Missoula mom on baby's unique and adorable onsie/swaddle/headband/bib/
pacifier clip in the perfect Missoula print, chances are it was a Paisley Pear Designs original. We carry a full range of Paisley Pear Designs items, including these perfect knot hats for coming home in. (Only available in store.)
- We carry natural wood teethers from Montana Solar Creations. Wood teething toys are baby favorites, as any parent with a gnawed wooden crib will attest! These fun shapes let baby explore a favorite chewing texture safely. (Only available in store.)
- Did you know that GroVia is a Montana brand? Started in Bozeman, GroVia is revolutionizing the natural parenting industry. GroVia diapers have every functional capability you could dream up (snaps, AIO, inserts) and come in fun prints and colors – perfect for the hot days of summer when clothes are optional, but diapers are necessary.
- Dig this Chick is another local Montana favorite. We carry one pieces, T-shirts, and bibs with the ubiquitous Montana-state outline in bright, cheerful prints. We love these as gifts for proud Montana natives and for anyone who has made the (regrettable) decision to move out of state. (Only available in store.)
