Fahey: Swanky Baby Boutique now open on Hilton Head Island

Anita Burke felt a market was underserved on Hilton Head Island: consignment clothes for the young.

"I have five kids of my own," Burke said. "Being on a budget, I like to shop around to get a bargain, but designer clothes hold up longer."

This desire to have quality clothes at a discount for her kids led Burke to create Swanky Baby Boutique. The store, now open at 55 Mathews Drive, Suite 205, on Hilton Head Island, features gently-used or like-new clothing, accessories and shoes, she said, with an emphasis on well-known brands and designers.

The boutique sells apparel for infants and children up to 12 years old.

Burke said she would like to eventually expand the business -- either by adding another location or expanding the current line of inventory.

"I would like to include things such as bassinets and high chairs," she said, adding that many customers have inquired about non-apparel consignment items for little ones.

Swanky Baby Boutique is open 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The store is closed on Sunday and Monday.
