Newborns might be tiny, but they require a lot of stuff. From bouncy seats to strollers to baby carriers to high chairs, it can add up fast. Twinklings, a secondhand store stocked with maternity and baby items, aims to defray some of those costs. The one-room shop, which opened in early March, sells maternity clothing, nursing items, and baby clothing and gear at thrift-store prices. The idea came to Birth Journeys childbirth educator and doula Jenna Thayer when she was pregnant with her fourth child. Thayer held a well-attended baby and maternity "swap and shop" in the Birth Journeys space and felt she'd identified a real need in the community. Twinklings opened its doors weeks before Thayer had her daughter Penelope, who's currently serving as her very sweet sidekick.
