"Precious" is the word that immediately comes to mind upon entering Buttercup. One wall of the closet-sized shop is lined with tiny, baby-doll versions of the latest fashions trends, replicas of garb seen on with-it neighborhood moms and dads, who want to similarly outfit their precious, teeny offspring. Forget onesies and receiving blankets; here, trendy pieces like mini hand-stitched ponchos, embroidered halter dresses, patch work jackets, and tweed caps are at the ready for the birthday-party and diaper set. Duds are available for kids from infants to age 6, though toddlers (or their parents, or their doting grands) will benefit most from a trip here. Sizes are limited due to the miniscule space, but the sales staff is happy to special order from high-end suppliers like Les Petits Chapelais and Calypso. Buttercup also adds a bit of style to Momïs everyday schlep with a substantial collection of chic tote bags and cool baby-wipe carrying cases, all mercifully devoid of the usual floral and Provencal prints.
