Top 5 independent kids clothes stores in Edinburgh

Buying kids clothes can be expensive, especially when you have more than one in your brood.

We champion independent stores in Edinburgh that are parent-friendly, and kids clothes stores are the ultimate parent-friendly shop.

We’ve listed our top independent kids clothes stores in Edinburgh right here:

1. Bon Tot

Located in Stockbridge, Bon Tot stocks clothes that make adults jealous of their kids!

Stylist Magazine called Bon Tot ‘too school for pre-school’ and if you just peruse their Instagram account, you’ll see why.

The owners, parents Kristina & Graham Currie, believe in slow, sustainable fashion, prioritising quality over quantity.

You can find Bon Tot online or at 46 St. Stephen Street.

2. Treehouse Childrenswear

Also located in Stockbridge (seems to be a theme going on here), Treehouse has it all:

  • kids clothes
  • toys
  • books
  • kids shoes
  • kids hairdresser

Every parent’s dream, a one-stop shop to get the kids kitted out and looking sharp.

We particularly love their TV stations at the hairdressing seats, keeping wriggly toddlers amused whilst they get their long locks chopped.

Find Treehouse Childrenswear at 10–12 Hamilton Place.

3. Blessings & Blossoms

This independent shop specialises in occassion wear for kids, especially for Christenings, Weddings, Communions and Parties.

This is the perfect place to go for christening gowns, flower girl & page boy outfits. They also stock more traditional kids clothes for those looking for smarter kidswear.

4. Maddie & Mark’s Shoes

The ultimate small business story: a frustrated mum set up her own store because she couldn’t find beautiful, practical and well-fitted shoes.

Ten years later, Maddie & Marks have clearly satisfied the niche market, they stock the best children’s shoes, boots, trainers, sandals, wellies and slippers from baby size 2 (18) to adult size 7 (41).

Find Maddie & Marks in Bruntsfield at 205 Bruntsfield Place, and Blackhall at 1 Craigcrook Place.
