There’s A Store In Your Driveway

Book the Peanut Butter & Jane fashion truck

Traffic and public meltdowns are two very good reasons to loathe shopping with a toddler. But what about browsing the racks inside a mobile boutique that's parked in your own driveway? That's the idea behind Peanut Butter & Jane. Owned by a local mother-daughter duo with impeccable taste, the shop-on-wheels resembles a food truck from the outside, but is filled with new and gently used apparel for little ones. Expect an expertly edited selection—we spotted a Juicy Couture bikini ($24.99), Ralph Lauren denim dress ($19.99), Diesel onesie ($8.99), and CreativeRec sneaks  ($14.99)—in sizes newborn to 5T.

It's no cost to book the truck, which will go anywhere within a 30-mile radius of zip code 90505. Just let them know what size(s) and/or gender interests you, and they’ll stock the truck with the right items before they arrive (such a cool idea for a baby shower, preschool fair, or group play date). Bonus: anyone who brings new or gently worn clothes can sell them on the spot for cash or store credit. Call 310.426.0930 to book.
