Once you have kids, there are a handful of retail stores you can add to your "danger" list (meaning highly tempting and potentially damaging to your wallet.)
Ella + Elliot is one of those stores which used to be primarily an online temptation (with a store in Toronto), but they’ve just opened shop in Vancouver. Don't be fooled though, the prices are sometimes deceiving. What looks like an expensive $2,400 crib converts into a bassinet, toddler bed, junior bed, AND sofa, which adds a great deal of value. And that $19 sippy cup is actually the most genius invention we've seen to date, with a weighted straw that means your little one can get to the liquid even if the cup is tilted.
So the prices aren’t as bad as you think. Unless you calculate the number of shoes you could have bought, instead of that crib. Then you’ll be the one crying hysterically.
