Hey Little Diddle is Carmel, Indiana’s answer to sustainable and eco-friendly wares for your tiny fashionista. Celeste Nance saw an opening in the northside Indianapolis suburb for a high-end luxury clothing and gift shop. In 2017, she took a big leap and started this gorgeous shop. Hey Little Diddle is becoming a Carmel institution. They focus on providing parents and loved ones with a valuable alternative to online or grocery store shopping for the littles in their life. Hey Little Diddle is two locations for “Child” and “Baby”. Inside the “Child” location, you will find clothing and gifts for children, up to age 10. In their “Baby” shop, you will be in awe over their mini children’s bookstore. Indeed, Hey Little Diddle is curated for the stylish parent who loves a neutral aesthetic.
Curated to the brim with gorgeous neutral clothes, decor, and toys Hey Little Diddle is certainly a prime example of exactly the kinds of clothing I recommend your kids wear to our session together. Enjoy soft-to-the-touch clothing fabric selections from brands that are known for being ethically sourced, eco-friendly, hand-crafted, organic, socially responsible, and using dyes that are certified to be safe for children. They carry toys like soft, pliable stuffed dolls, food-grade silicone tea sets, knitted animals, assorted block bags, and magnetic dress-up toys.
When entering Hey Little Diddle, you will be immediately met with a sense of warmth and home. You can rifle through delicately printed dresses for your little miss, rompers for easy one-piece outfits, and seersucker everything. You will find in-demand, popular, and classic patterns, hand-selected for their perfectly composed store. For your newest addition head to the “Baby” store and check out the uber-soft rompers, butter-soft pajamas, blankets, and knits that will make you swoon. Don’t sleep on their amazing must-have staples like swaddles, sleep sacks, stuffies, and more.
When shopping for the perfect accessory to pull your outfit together, look no further than Hey Little Diddle. They have you covered with cute socks, hats, headbands, shoes, and sunglasses for your little fashionista. You will find accessories either perfectly laid out on tables or in beautiful, crocheted baskets throughout the store. Go now to buy a Gathre mat. Gathre mats are a staple for young families, offering a multi-purpose solution for diaper changes, placemats, play mats, yoga, and picnic blankets. Mushie cups will have your little one continually asking for more.
At “Baby”, Hey Little Diddle carries the highly sought-after Charlie Crane Paris™ Baby Rocker LEVO. From birth to 7 months, your little peanut will adore this rocker that softly adapts its back-and-forth motion to baby’s movements. Also as a bonus, your home decor will thank you.
Silicone feeding pacifiers, organic Montessori-style toys, and seasonal favorites- oh my! No matter the season, Hey Little Diddle has you covered. Then, bounce into spring with favorites like rabbits, florals, checks, and stripes as they adorn every part of the store. Stop in for snuggly winter sweaters, imaginative play sets, leather Gathre advent calendars, holiday movie-themed shirts, holiday books, and winter animal-printed clothing. Does summer have you ready for the outdoors? Swing by for Banwood bikes, trikes, scooters, and balance bikes.
Hey Little Diddle caters to parents who love a neutral aesthetic in their home, clothes, and in their little ones as well. I adore every nook, corner, and built-in shelves that are piled high with all of my favorite brands. The “Baby” store offers a gorgeous selection of baby gifts and gift bundles for the last-minute baby shower. If you happen to know the baby’s name, you must take advantage of their custom embroidery services.
Hey Little Diddle offers two locations, both located in the bustling Carmel City Center and perfectly surrounded by other locally-owned shops and mouth-watering eats. The “Baby” store serves infants from sizes preemie to 12 months. The “Child” store serves your little ones from ages 1 year to 7 years. A trip to this picturesque and adorably-Instagrammable store isn’t to be missed. Your littles can enjoy a hands-on shopping and imaginative experience.
While you’re out shopping for the perfect outfit and gift for your little ones, how do you feel about booking a photographer to match? I adore every brand that Hey Little Diddle carries and often recommend them in my planning guide that clients rave about! Let me take a minute to tell you why I’m different than other Indianapolis photographers. Like Hey Little Diddle, I highly value hand-crafted luxury items to deliver to my clients. Memories are irreplaceable and moments like your pregnancy, every newborn session, milestone moments, and days in your family’s life should be treated with white glove service.
I also offer beautiful products like fine art framed prints and fine art and heirloom quality albums. My framed fine art prints are locally and ethically sourced in the United States. Prints are 100% cotton Hahnemühle paper, blocked with a 2” white mat. All stains are water-based and contain no VOCs. I custom-build wall collections and galleries for each family I work with.
I also offer albums as well as three different digital image collections. I’m also proud to offer albums that include a lay-float binding and give you the choice of linen, leather, or velvet coverings. The velvet covering is divine. In the fine art album, the pages are constructed with Giclee matte acid-free paper. Without a doubt, you can expect a soft, luxe finish.
