City folk may think they out-chic their country cousins, but venturing a bit beyond the perimeter proves those in the sticks are anything but hicks.
Yes, there is life beyond Buckhead.
Need proof? Check out Canton’s Le Petit Bebe Chic. Chockful of garments and gear for babies, tweens, and in betweens, it stocks everything from clothing by Bailey Boys, Little Threads, and RuffleButts to tutus, halos, and fairy wings.
And with a baby registry offering 10 percent off to gift-givers (plus an everyday 10 percent discount for teachers, police officers, firefighters, and military), this baby boite beats any big city store.
By a country mile.
