Need a kids' winter jacket? A baby shower gift? A birthday present? A fashion-forward pair of earrings? Relish Threads, a new store in Shelburne that opened in late November, offers these items and more.

Jamie Wilhite, who runs her Relish gourmet hot dog cart during the warmer months, says she envisions the new store as a warm and welcoming place where parents can bring their kids, without worrying about someone asking them not to touch things. It's located in the Tennybrook Square Plaza on Shelburne Rd., next to La Villa Bistro and Gymstar Gymnastics.

At the front of the store, a pair of velvety couches, small area with books and toys, and chalkboard wall provide spots for parents to relax and kids to play. Wilhite's sons, 8-year-old Jameson and 6-year-old Clayton, often hang out at the store after school.

Relish Threads stocks both new and gently used clothing, size newborn to 14. In addition, Wilhite carries an eclectic assortment of kids' items, from wooden toys to baby blankets. Goods from independent female designers are also featured — including leather bags and tassle earrings from Hinesburg-based Ma & Pembum, upcycled pants for toddlers from Pineapple Designs VT and girls' cotton dresses from Petit Peony. For the shopper looking to grab a last-minute present, the store even sells gift bags and wrapping paper.

Relish Threads (3762 Shelburne Rd., Shelburne) hosts an open house on Friday, December 8, 4-7 p.m, with a wine tasting and snacks.
