Since first opening their doors at Clock Tower Square (technically first at the Almy House), The Groovy Gator has won over fans because of quality, adorable brands there, delightful ambiance and charm of owner and designer Leslie Cathers. So, we were delighted when a second location opened at 408 Thames Street in Newport last month. With clothing, toys and accessories for newborn to age 12, plus Leslie’s private label collection for ages 2-12, there’s something to suit every little personality. Soft,
snuggly, eco-friendly dolls by blabla; hand-crafted wooden toys from Melissa & Doug; all natural cotton baby clothes from Sweet Peanut, European-style clothes for kids from Emily Lacey; Wes and Willy for boys; made in Maine Bunnytail Blankets, charming pieces from Olive Juice; plus a ton of fun accessories.
Personalized kids-sized Adirondack chair and beach pails, tutus, hats, wallets, bags- everything here is simply precious.
The Groovy Gator Newport location is open, at this point in the season, Thursday through Sunday; Portsmouth (401-683-0084) is open daily.
