Mountain Goat Kids at 420-B Main St. in Weaverville is co-owned by sisters-in-law Amy Brookins and Cala-Dece Traub. Open since the beginning of June, the store sells new and previously loved children’s clothing, accessories, and gear for kids ages 0-18.
This locally owned business offers to the community a safe and fun place to visit with the kids. Every Wednesday at 10 a.m. the business hosts story time with books sponsored by Tammie’s Books next door.
They have a wide range of new arrivals located at the front of the store and the back section is dedicated to all of their gently used children’s clothes for every season. It is certainly a place to find just about anything one may need for the little ones in their life. There are even some items for mom including essential oils and jewelry.
Amy Brookins majored in business management at Sacramento State University and Cala-Dece managed at Gap and Baby Gap stores. Both have a passion for reducing waste and wanted to provide needed variety to what was available in Trinity County.
When asked what prompted them to start a children’s store in Weaverville, Cala said “We are very into reduce, reuse, recycle. We have friends who have kids and being young mothers in the community ourselves, we felt we needed a place for people to buy gifts for baby showers, children’s parties, and just a children’s boutique that catered to everyone.”
This Halloween, they are doing story time at 4 p.m. and then trick-or-treating afterward. There is a plethora of kids’ costumes outside, so for any parents that are still looking for last-minute costumes, they have got you covered.
“We really want to be a hub for parents and kids, whether it be recommending babysitters, daycare, or any other services young parents may need,” Cala mentioned. As a new business they are open to what the community would want to see in a kids’ store.
There is a corkboard right when you walk in that is for young entrepreneurs to post their business cards with services varying from babysitting to lawn mowing. Be sure to check this out to support the youth in Trinity County.
Mountain Goat Kids is open to the public 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, and by appointment.
