Best Women’s Clothing Store, Toy Store and Children’s Clothing Store: Bella Beach
The mother and daughter team of Heather D’Errico and Kris Mackerer D’Errico offer beach moms and beach kids places to shop together for colorful, bold styles.
“Color’s always in style,” Kris Mackerer D’Errico said. “Floral clothing or floral accessories are really big now too.”
“Tie-dye always holds style near the beach too,” she added.
Walking into Bella Beach Kids is like walking into Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, except instead of candy, it’s stuffed full with cuddly stuffed animals and fun children’s toys.
Bella Beach Kids has been a go-to shop for South Bay parents because of their unique toys and their consistently new products. They are often changing their products by adding unique toys like whimsical mermaids as well as child development games to their already extensive store.
Piper Freeman, 2, and Ivy Freeman, 1, can often be seen around town in matching Bella Beach outfits, as well as carrying Bella Beach toys. Bella offers brands like Giggle Moon and even offer matching mother-daughter options.
