Wee Babe Opens up Shop on Washington Street in Hoboken

Wee Babe Hoboken NJ 415 Washington Street Retail

Entrepreneurs Beau Kuhn and Selina Aquino are bringing the Brooklyn baby to Hoboken with the Grand Opening of their second location of Wee Babe, that happened Friday, June 14, at 415 Washington St.

The specialty store features a line-up of top notch, parentally-rated baby gear, gadgets and apparel for babies and beyond. The first location opened last year in Williamsburg, another bustling baby town. The success of that store paved the way for the location in Hoboken, where Kuhn lives and Aquino had worked for more than a decade. The store specializes in selling only those products that are parent approved and is competitively priced with other baby specialty stores.

“Our vision for Williamsburg was working and we were making so many deliveries to Hoboken when we came across an ideal location,” says Kuhn, a mother of three. “Besides that fact that this city is my home, Hoboken is a small geographical area with lots of families. And it’s a walking city, which is perfect for our products.”

The Wee Babe success is based on personalized service and an educational approach to products. “Part of the reason our concept is working is because we look at our staff as educators, not sales people,” says Aquino, who is also a mother of three. “Our product selection is based on our personal experiences, customer feedback and lots and lots of research and product testing. We strive to have the newest, best products and provide very personalized customer service.”

The 800-square-foot store features such popular baby brand names as Clek, BumbleRide, Baby Jogger, Beco and Mama’s and Papa’s. The Grand Opening celebration is at 1:00 pm on Friday and will run Friday and Saturday with free gifts with purchase, giveaways and raffle prizes while supplies last. The raffle lineup includes goodies from Aden+Anis; Mum2Mum; Yulli; Suppori; Tivoli Couture, Fred’s Swim Academy, Stokke and strollers by Munchin and Quinny.

Fashionistas with a propensity to party should mark your calendars for the Nomad Truck’s Grand Opening Party at the Village Pourhouse in Hoboken on April 13th from 11am-4pm. Details are below….

Nomad Truck Hoboken Grand opening at Village Pourhouse 4-13-2013
Mobile Fashion Truck to Launch in Greater NYC Area – Boutique Brings Haute Wheels to Hoboken in April

Nomad, the mobile retail boutique, today announced that after four months of construction and almost a year of planning, it will hit the road and roll up its doors on April 13th, 2013, with a grand opening celebration outside of the Village Pourhouse located at 205 1st Street  in Hoboken, NJ. The launch party will run from 11am – 4pm and will offer drink specials at the Village Pourhouse for Nomad customers.

The carefully curated mobile fashion boutique offers trendy ladies’ fashions for under $100. All inventory is handpicked by Jessie Goldenberg, founder and CEO, who established Nomad after observing the overwhelming success of the food truck industry and the growing trend of pop-up shops.

Nomad will showcase handmade and local designers, many of which Goldenberg found via and through her experience vending under the Nomad banner in more traditional booth set-ups since early January. Some of the fashions already on board include beaded stacker bracelets by NYC based Harmony L, minimalist mixed-metal pieces by local Hoboken favorite hbkco., and flowy printed tops by Ya Los Angeles and Mono B.

“I want to build a (mobile) place where my customers – young, creative women – can have fun shopping without breaking the bank,” says Goldenberg, “A place that is convenient and affordable, inspiring and intimate. And of course there should be good music.”

Goldenberg, a filmmaker turned full-time fashionista, graduated from NYU Tisch with a slew of production credits under her belt and a whirlwind of ideas in her head. With Nomad, Goldenberg seeks to combine her artistic eye and love of travel to create a fun and novel shopping experience for customers in the region.

While Nomad will be parked primarily in Hoboken, NJ, this mobile retail boutique will offer private party services, visit local colleges, and vend at NYC Flea Markets and street fairs. Locations for the upcoming week will be posted on the website and advertised via social media.

For more information, or to book a private event with the truck, visit

Anthropologie located at 412 Washington Street in Hoboken, NJ is even closer to opening than ever. They revealed their exterior yesterday and the façade is quite tastefully done. This anchor store is likely to change the retail landscape of Hoboken for quite some time.  This is one of the most anticipated store openings in recent Hoboken memory.  They are likely to have a Grand Opening or soft opening in April based on the progress I am seeing.
