Trendy decor for kids, teens and babies (plus quite a few accessories adults will like) fills this colorful new shop in Petoskey's Gaslight District.
Moms and grandmas with tween girls in tow: Beware. If your girls walk into Sky Iris, your wallet may never recover. At first glance, this new shop in Petoskey's historic Gaslight District seems thrown together, with a jumble of colorful stuff in a gray box of a store. But look closer, and you'll find a carefully curated collection of genuinely cute furniture and accessories: mod lamp shades, cool pillows, funky posters, whimsical stuffed animals. There's plenty for both boys and girls, with items appropriate for all ages, but the crowd we imagine going crazy in here are upper-elementary and junior-high girls. That said, our scout at first was going to walk away -- her daughter is just a toddler, after all -- but ended up snagging a cool pair of polka-dot wool mittens on the sale table. Despite appearances, this shop is a gem for women of all ages who appreciate a bit of whimsy and style in their home or wardrobe. (And if this sounds up your alley, be sure to check out the Sky Iris website, which stocks way more than the shop. It's a really cool resource.)
