Almost 25 years ago Connie Todd was working as an X-Ray technician at Chesapeake General Hospital.  Leaving work one day she noticed a sign announcing that a shopping center would be coming soon, directly across from the hospital.  Connie was also teaching Lamaze classes at the time, and knew the hospital was getting ready to open a new birthing center.  Suddenly all the pieces came together in her mind…she realized that there was a perfect opportunity to do something creative and positive – to open a needed children’s specialty store!  Connie had done some home parties, selling samples and was now ready to make her dream a reality.  Connie’s Kids recently celebrated its 23rd anniversary – a successful realization of a vision!

CKStorefrontConnie’s Kids, a bright and happy store, specializes in something dear to everyone here at le•top’s heart – dressing children as children!  As Connie observes “They are only little once, and I encourage my customers to keep them “babies” as long as possible, because when it’s over, it’s OVER!” Connie has 2 children, but because of the unique environment at her store she has a huge ‘extended’ family – she is now working with ‘2nd generation’ customers!  Specializing in special occasion clothing including Christening, Communion Wear and Flower Girl and Ring Bearer attire makes it possible for Connie to share in the joy of these momentous events in her customer’s lives.  At Connie’s Kids things are kept very real, yet very special – everything is still handmade, including the store gift bags.  Connie offers gift wrap and does everything to fulfill her customer’s special order needs.  There are exquisite choices for gift giving – including crocheted shawls and sweater sets hand made by Connie’s mom.
