Violeta E Federico is one of those rare brands that immediately captures the eye with their fine detail for quality, simplicity in style and timeless fabrics—with many of the pieces hand finished. Proudly designed and made in Barcelona, we happily welcome a small collection of cardigans and hats, jackets, dresses and tights for little ones this Christmas. And happily, this is merely just the beginning, as we look forward to receiving their wonderful Spring/Summer 2014 collection in the new year!

Full of play and imagination, La Cerise Sur Le Gateau (Paris) is one of the most fun brands for the home and living today! (could be why they won first prize for in the Junior Design Awards 2013: best interiors collection) Full of fanciful and whimsical prints, stripes, dots upon dots, bits of fluo, and dreamy Liberty prints—the mixture is classic French with a twist. Their brand utilizes beautiful, high quality cottons and linens, with fine details—pillows, laundry bags, little storage bags, quilts, and more!
... And when we first discovered them years ago, they were simply a must to introduce in the shop… always with a sunny outlook, Anne Hubert (owner and designer) captures with her zest for life!

Our hearts are filled with so much gratitude and happiness as we are nearing our very 1st anniversary! Since the launch of our e-boutique and pop-up shop (now a permanent shop) we have been overwhelmed by your warm welcome, support, kind words, and visits—without you, Leuie would not be what it is today, and we cannot thank you enough!
In return, we would like to extend that kindness back out into the community, and as we head into the Christmas season, we would like to help our neighbours who are less fortunate. We are very happy to announce that we will be hosting a charity project, accepting new or gently worn children's clothing and shoes—starting on Saturday, November 23rd and running until Thursday, November 28th.
It truly breaks our hearts to think of those in need—especially children. With your help, we would like to make this a special time for as many as we can by donating baby and children's clothing (from basic socks and mittens to cozy jackets) to Helping Families in Need: "If one person would help just one other person, what a difference that would make." These are the words of Ray Abernethy and they define Ray's absolute dedication to those who need help in his community. Whether a single mother, foster parent, new immigrant, refugee, low income family, Ray has volunteered his services for more than 18 years sourcing, collecting and distributing furniture, clothing and household goods. What began as a small backyard project has blossomed under his leadership and vision into a unique, charitable society called Helping Families in Need serving the needs of thousands of people in the lower mainland and Fraser Valley." To read stories, please click here. To discover more about the wonderful charity, please visit their website, here. We will deliver your items to Helping Families in Need on Friday, November 29th.
* Additionally, from Saturday, November 23rd until Thursday, November 28th, with each outfit, dress or set purchased from the Maison Gabrielle Lemaitre collection, we will donate one complete, cozy and soft leisurewear set from the collection to a child in need. You may purchase pieces in store as well as online.
If you have any questions about the anniversary event or donating, please feel free to give us a call at: 604 376 7678 or email us at: email@example.com —we look forward to celebrating with you!

A warm thank you to David Arias for the beautiful artwork for this project.
The day was beautiful… an intermingling of babies, one even unborn, some not quite walking… little ones, in primary school, and parents. It was the day that the centre of the Leuie shop transformed into a gathering place for story telling and drawing, sweet treats, and smiles. There were imperfect polka dots on table tops and bunting banners, but perhaps what was most memorable were the voices, embraces, and moments shared. The very talented Linnie Von Sky, publisher and author of "Our Canadian Love Story" captivated the crowd with her fun tidbits sprinkled amoungst the story telling of her very first book. (click to discover more about the book) We thank all who attended our very first event, and look forward to many more in the future!
We are absolutely delighted to be featured in Vogue, UK (November 2013 issue) : "Vogue's Dream Nursery" —a lovely page featuring a selection of pieces for nursery, created especially for the birth of Prince George. We are honoured to be amongst wonderful brands and shops, including White Rabbit of England. (Their beautiful night lights can be purchased in our shop as well as online) Also, adjacent, Nimm is also featured, with the launch of their stylish and sweet collection—also found in the shop and online. A warm thank you to Vogue for the very kind words!
