Jennifer and Tony Fuentes say their newborn-to-age-5 children's boutique evolved out of their desire to find hard-to-come-by products and supplies when their first child was born. Now, the parents of two cater to new parents, offering everything they'll need to make their own lives easier and their children's lives better, from breastfeeding supplies and cloth diapers to locally made clothing and toys. Milagros also hosts classes and community events, and the shop can be rented for birthday parties and showers. Plus, every day at Milagros is bring-your-child-to-work day, so your little ones can mingle with the staff's children in the store's play area while you shop.
The 600-square-foot space that once housed the original Milagros Boutique is now a “very affordable event space,” says owner Tony Fuentes, that’s available for parties and baby showers as well as community and corporate events like workshops or meetings. Although red French doors connect the long, rectangular room to the adjoining shop, the rental space, dubbed The Family Room, also has its own entrance, plus a bathroom, sound system, WiFi access, LCD projector and screen. Comfortably seating 40 in a classroom setting, Fuentes describes it as a "flexible space" that can be arranged to fit your needs, whether that’s tables and chairs or just an open area. Regardless of if you’re looking to meditate or be boisterous, all groups are welcome, and the "simple, open and warm" atmosphere, according to Fuentes, is typified by a wooden play castle in a corner nook (complete with a magic mirror and kiddie photo cutout board featuring a princess and knight). Milagros also utilizes the room to host nonprofit groups and regular store events (like music and classes), and while Fuentes says you can book the space through eVenues, you’ll get a better rate if you call him directly. He currently charges $20 per hour for meetings and workshops and $65 for three hours of party time (plus an additional cleaning fee unless you choose to pick up after yourself). And adding to the affordability, Fuentes highlights the proximity to NE Alberta and Killingsworth Streets, which are chock-full of restaurants, mentioning that you can bring in your own food and drink.
