West Chelsea might not be known for its under-five population, but that hasn't stopped Cumanda Silver and her husband Herb from opening an adorable kid's shop in the neighborhood. Cumi's Babies' Clothes debuted last month on Tenth Avenue between W. 28th and 29th Streets in a space that was once a small art gallery. (As yet, they have no website, but their number is 646-633-5282.) The clothes, in silk, cotton, and linen, are entirely handmade. They're sized for toddlers and smaller, though some of the print dresses are so cute we wish they'd make adult versions. Prices could stay child-sized, though: Most outfits run $18 to $25.
Cumi's is just around the corner from the High Line's soon-to-open (next spring) Section 2, only a stone's throw away from Ohm, the big new residential rental building on West 30th, and just up from Port 10 at a 303 Tenth, set to have renters move in come September. So while the location might seem a little out-of-the-way, we suspect the stroller brigade will find it soon enough.
