Bootyland, the eternally hip and sustainable children’s store, is moving from their longtime Capitol Hill location. After 18 years in the Pine St. space, the green toy and clothing retailer is preparing to set up shop elsewhere. A “mama-run” business since 1996, Bootyland offers locally-made toys, a wide range of baby accessories and an extensive selection of ethically sourced women's, children's and baby clothing.
To mark the closing of their Capitol Hill storefront and celebrate the opening of a new location, Bootyland is hosting a going-away party at their current space on Friday, Feb. 13. They’re also in the midst of an Indiegogo campaign that will help fund moving costs: Owner Ellie Cassidy says that support for Bootyland’s crowdsourcing campaign “may also allow some new collaborations with local makers and artists,” including a mural in the store’s new home. Bootyland plans to move to their new outpost in March.
