Bijou Toddlers Paso Robles

Don’t forget the babies and toddlers section!

—Nestled in the heart of downtown Paso Robles, Bijou offers plenty of high-quality clothing, jewelry, accessories, and more to fashionable shoppers for themselves, their babies, and toddlers. Owner Camilla Burns opened the store in 2016 with an eye for high-quality and timeless pieces to complement the closet for every visitor and also offers quality clothes and toys in the fun baby and toddler corner.

“We are excited to be celebrating our eighth anniversary this July and are truly grateful for all the local support we’ve had over the years. It hasn’t always been easy, what with COVID, challenging weather, parking, and protests, but we’ve pulled through thanks to our regular customers, both local and out of towners who shop with us every time they come through town,” owner Camilla Burns said.

Get ready for summer with the perfect clothing items at Bijou, such as casual and formal dresses. For the chilly Paso Robles evenings, make sure to grab a cozy sweater or leather jacket. Add some sparkle to your look with jewelry from Waxing Poetic, VSA, or Collective Hearts; accessories such as a modern bag and hats are on display. Burns notes that “we have a wide range of price points to suit everyone’s budget.”

The Bijou Baby & Toddler section is full of delightful toys that can be found exclusively in the store, such as the Maileg Mice; children can enjoy playing with the mice hiking family, chef, and royal family who all come with adorable accessories. Take a look at the quality clothes brands Milkbarn Kids and Posh Peanut with playful patterns and colors.

“Quality and effortless elegance are two qualities that we look for in our products while quality and customer service are at the top of our mind for our valued customers,” reads the website.

Burns draws on her experiences living in various places around the world, including England, Sweden, and Brazil, when curating the collection in Bijou. A focus on elegant, trendy, and diverse clothing and accessories options can always be found at Bijou.

“I think it is important to let our locals know how much we value them and their support of our small business. All the businesses in the downtown core have so much to offer in different ways but cannot survive on tourists alone. Mid-week shopping is a great way to get to know the owners, have idle conversations and catch up on life on the Central Coast. Parking is free and there is always a spot to be had,” Burns said.

Bijou also gives back to the community with fundraisers, such as the famous Wine 4 Paws spring weekend, where proceeds go towards local animal shelters. Burns notes that the store is pet-friendly and welcomes all creatures, with treats and ‘puppuccinos’ on hand.

Bijou is located at 815 12th Street in Paso Robles. Open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit, or call (805) 296-3833.
