Best Children's Store San Francisco 2008 - Thursday's Child
Shopping at Thursday's Child is like poking around in an overstuffed closet and finding one unexpected treasure after another. Every nook and cranny of this tiny, dimly lit basement-level kids' boutique is packed with stuff: toys, dolls, stuffed animals, myriad doodads and knickknacks, and, primarily, clothes. Unlike other children's clothing outlets in Cow Hollow (and practically everywhere else), Thursday's Child offers relatively affordable apparel and lots of it, an ever-changing array of everything from rompers and raincoats to slippers, bathrobes, party dresses, and cowgirl attire. More amazingly, a great percentage of this hodgepodge is top-quality and cute to boot. The store has been around since 1970 and has watched the neighborhood evolve onward and upward; long may its teeming, untrendy nature endure.
