Shorties Children's Wear Store was opened in 2004 in Newtown, Sydney by Celia Morris, owner and designer of Dragstar Clothing, www.dragstar.com.au, to fill a need in the market for fashionable, original and retro inspired clothing and toys for newborns and children up to fourteen years old. A second store was successfully established in 2017 in Leichhardt, Sydney.
Shorties supports handmade and handcrafted products made in small runs by local designers. We also stock previously unseen children's fashion labels which mix in with one of a kind handknits and original tops, skirts and dresses made in bold and vintage prints. Shorties do not stock logo oriented brands, mass produced and cheap imported labels.
With new products arriving weekly it is always worth popping in to our Newtown or Leichhardt stores. If you can't get in , shop online, we post items Australia wide.
We can gift box your presents for you and we have great gift ideas starting at just $5 including lots of party novelties that will take you back to your own childhood parties.
We offer free gift wrapping as part of our service.
