Our Shop Neighbourhood in Copenhagen
by My Seline von Appen Keller on Apr 04, 2022
In the heart of historic Copenhagen, tucked in between the renowned Nyhavn and Amalienborg Palace, you will find the atmospheric small street Store Strandstræde and the CO Label brand store, one of the last Children’s stores in Copenhagen.
The atmosphere is happy and lighthearted. In creating the store, it was important to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere - and most importantly welcoming families to visit, shop and get advise. Children are always as welcome as their parents. Crayons and toys are available at any time. And everything in the shop can be touched, moved and played with.
A big flowy Gervasoni chair welcomes you to nurse or to simply rest and a changing station ready and available for babies. Nappies, wipes and creams are available for changing if needed - free of charge. The shop is effortless and beautiful, highlighting our quality garments and a carefully selected handful of exclusive brands to satisfy your needs. You will find our handpicked and curated selection of baby gifts, clothing, nursery décor, bedding and care products for you and your little ones. We cannot wait to show you our neighbourhood.
