New to our list of Denver locations, Real Baby now offers our Bloom Charm Bar. Pick from what they have on hand, or allow a short period of time to create the perfect custom charm necklace to celebrate the arrival or birthday of a little one. We are delighted to feature Real Baby and its owner, Hilary, this month!
