Luxey Little Ones owner Jennifer Poe has a natural talent for design, recalling, “I bought my first place when I was 19 and renovated it and I have been fortunate enough to continue doing that into my adult, married life.” Armed with a degree in interior design, Poe recently developed a team of “baby gear experts and nursery and kid space designers” at Luxey Littles Ones, she says, with locations in Newtown and most recently in West Chester.
In both locations, Poe offers “a perfectly curated boutique of all the most sought-after mom-friendly and trendy things that are out there,” she says. “It’s the unexpected.”
Luxey Little Ones is Poe’s second children’s boutique.
A mother of four, Poe feels that the boutique combines “taste and practicality” with its offerings of furniture, apparel, and gifts for newborns through age 6, from brands like Nuna, UPPAbaby, Silver Cross, 4Moms and Yosi.
While the focus may be on the products, it’s also about creating a calming atmosphere. “It’s all about the experience,” Poe says, noting they offer registry services. “A lot of our expecting mommies don’t know if they’re having a boy or a girl, so we get to keep their secret for them and compile all their wishes,” Poe adds. She and her staff have even been known to bring items, like a babies’ going home outfit, to the hospital.
Running a business while balancing motherhood is no easy feat, but Poe “is trying to be that positive female role model in my children’s lives,” she says.
