local love: Franklin Goose


Nerdy.mama.excitement. Maybe I'm just oblivious or perhaps I've fallen prey to the notion that browsing Carytown boutiques with an an infant is not welcome. But I stumbled into Franklin Goose (storefront opened Oct 1) & was delighted to find a spacious layout, well stocked & uncluttered shelves & well-informed staff that gave me space to shop. Until now I thought my only option for registering for surprise babe would be an online cloth diaper site. Au contraire! There is now a local source for both cloth options & biosoakers. (We're committed to GroVia already & will hopefully stock up for 2-kids-in-diapers phase.) They also stock other brands that I've only been able to find online before & thus have opted to go without: Rockin Green, Boon, etc... So I have indulged in a diapering nerdy-mama list, right here.

The upstairs is equipped with a space for classes & a nursing/changing room. Apparently a local chiropractor who specializes in prenatal adjustments (& is willing to gently adjust children) is coming to speak at the shop November 6th. This also makes me smile, & we hope to attend. Way to go, Richmond, for demanding natural, organic, eco-conscious products within the city limits & not in Short Pump!
