After nearly 15 years, children’s store Bu & the Duck is packing things up. It most likely won’t continue as an online business, but founder Susan Lane is keeping her options open. The shop will be around through Christmas, with items on sale until then (and that includes the antiques).
I don’t have kids, but I always admired the quality of the clothes and the overall vision (plus I just liked saying the name). It’s the kind of store that made Tribeca what it is, and it’ll be missed.
