Madison Rose opens up in Carroll Gardens

img_0667 We recently spoke to Jillian DiChiaro, co-owner of Madison Rose , a new maternity shop in Carroll Gardens . The store, which is named after her two daughters, Riley Madison and Stella Rose, buys, sells and trades maternity clothes. "After my second daughter was born, I decided to sell my maternity clothes online," says DiChiaro. "I had spent a lot of money on them and felt that someone else could get use out of them. It was then that I realized how desperately women wanted fashionable maternity clothes at reasonable prices!" At first, DiChiaro bought clothes from women in her neighborhood and online, and set up shop in her house. But, when her husband got laid off (he was a former merchandiser), the duo decided to pool their talents and open up Madison Rose. The boutique carries stylish items including brands such as Olian , Maternal America , Momzee and Noppies . All buying and selling is done by appointment only, so make sure to call the store in advance. The shop also offers nursing clothes; that way, they can still please customers who've already given birth.
