Our story begins in 2009 as owner Melissa Natale was becoming exhausted with her endless search for unique, high-quality, locally available items for her daughters. A dream grew from the search and Melissa developed the concept for Sproutlings Children's Boutique. Sproutlings was named by Melissa’s oldest daughter Emma after months of discussions. She said it encompassed nature, growing children, change, and love; it was a name that said it all!


We opened our doors in Duluth, MN in June, 2010 with an aim to serve our community by providing a variety of products that aren't available in big-box retail stores. Sproutlings is proud to specialize in eco-friendly items; we make every effort to choose items that are made using low impact fabrics - such as bamboo or organic cotton - and those which are BPA & lead free. We delight in providing options for durable, high-quality items that express individuality and comfort. Our goal is to provide an excellent resource for the families in our region and now nationally, with the launch of our online store. Welcome and enjoy!
