Spotted Stork is a locally owned baby boutique nestled in a cozy pink cottage on 1st Avenue North in Jacksonville Beach. When owner Julie Wintz envisioned Spotted Stork, she kept several things in mind: she wanted to “offer distinctive and exclusive brands and unique, quality pieces that are not sold anywhere else in Jacksonville; provide a charming location; and bundle it all up in outstanding customer service and one-on-one attention.”
When I visited Spotted Stork a couple of weeks ago to find a baby shower gift for a good friend of mine, I noticed that the shop is both charmingly quaint and very well organized. Julie offers her customers many attractive items, including well-known brands Ruffle Butts, Baby Legs, Kissy Kissy, and Tea Collection, as well as many handmade items. A recent arrival is the BobaAir Carrier, an ultra-lightweight ergonomic carrier that folds up into a small pouch, making it perfect for travel. The boutique also offers custom-designed, personalized baby gifts and free gift wrapping. Although it was tough to choose among so many great items, I ended up getting a cute set that included a matching burp cloth, bib, and diaper holder in a gorgeous Amy Butler print.
Located at 318 First Avenue North in Jacksonville Beach, Spotted Stork is open Tuesday through Saturday, from 10am to 6pm. Pop in and visit Julie for a unique shopping experience!
