New York transplant Lief Anne Stiles Catlett opened 1Z 2Z 3Z at 5720 Patterson Ave. in early April, with carefully selected apparel for children ages 0 to 4.
There are also fun items such as handmade clocks from Modern Moose shaped like rocket ships, and wall art featuring elephants and hippos, made by British artist Fiona Walker, among other accessories, décor and toys.
Catlett will offer free storytelling time, classes (such as nurse-led sessions on baby CPR), and seminars (such as nursery design on a dime). She even offers shopping parties for the mom-to-be and her friends and family, complete with disco lights, music and champagne. “I definitely want to be a resource for the community,” she says.
