Kid's Klothesline Holiday window featuring le•top
In 1996 Tania Yoder, pregnant with her first child, attended a family reunion. As conversations swirled around her she overheard one of her cousins trying to convince another cousin to take over her children’s shop. She whispered to herself “I would like to do that.” Once Tania voiced her inner feelings there was a chorus of support – and her dream moved towards becoming reality. The original owner helped Tania relocate the store to Perrysburg Ohio, Tania’s home. Her son Grant was born in September of 1996 and in February of 1997 Kid’s Klothesline of Perrysburg Ohio opened and became an instant hit!
Over the past 13 years Kid’s Klothesline has evolved in many ways – starting with the variety of collections that Tania chooses. She feels that one of her boutique’s strengths is providing a wide assortment that ranges from classic and traditional looks that appeal to her favorite customers (‘Grandmas, Grandmas, Grandmas!’) to clothes that keep her girl’s 7-14 regulars coming back until they have ‘outgrown’ the store!
Kid’s Klothesline’s style has evolved, but its ‘family’ has expanded! The true secret to Tania’s success is her staff – a caring and loving group that ‘works and plays together!’ Tania cherishes her store manager, Teresa Gagnon Meredith, a treasured fixture since the store opened. Loyal customers complete Tania’s ‘family’ – and bring her the satisfaction of sharing important occasions and milestones with the members of her community. She loves seeing the photographs of christenings, 1st birthdays and first days of school – in special outfits that she helped choose. “There is nothing better than helping a new grandma select baby’s first outfit!”
Perrysburg Ohio is a beautiful area with a rich history, dating back to the early 1800’s. The historic shopping district provides a safe and comfortable shopping experience that has an old fashioned feel that does not need to be manufactured. Tania loves being a part of this supportive and close knit community. Her favorite time is during the holidays when families come back to town to visit and always stop in to shop and share photos of the extended ‘family.’
Thirteen years ago Tania’s life changed – and as she relates “It’s like being locked into a roller coaster and hanging on for the ride, but loving what I do so much!” We know everyone loves what you do Tania – keep it up!
