Excerpt: Petite Cabane, a retailer of children’s clothing, toys, home décor and specialty gift items with a European flair, has opened in downtown Birmingham.
Petit Cabane, French for “small cabin,” specializes in brands that are ethically made and mainly women-run. It is operated by friends and co-owners Carrie Martin and Samantha Foster. “We both live in Birmingham and love the community,” says Martin. “We’re surrounded by great dining and foot traffic. I’ve lived and shopped here for years and felt the community would appreciate our unique style, service, and quality.”
