Baby and Children’s Stores In + Around Lansing

Over the past ten or so years, the number of local baby and children’s stores in Lansing has multiplied. Each store offers something unique and we love to support our local businesses! We’ve put together our favorite spots to get toys, clothes, gifts, and more for the next time you’re looking for something special.

Grace + Jane

A brand new face in the Lansing community, Grace + Jane began as an online children’s boutique with some of the cutest infant and toddler clothes around. With brands like Rylee and Cru, Quincy Mae, Mebie Baby, Colored Organics, and Brave Little Ones, Grace + Jane have filled a gap in Lansing of unique and well-made children’s clothes. They’re a great place to shop for gifts or for just making sure your little one is dressed to impress.

Grace + Jane will also be expanding into a brick and mortar space in Bridge and Main Market in Dewitt over the coming months.
