Our Store

Welcome to Pumpkin Pie Kids! 

We have been Nanaimo's specialty kids store since 1992 for 3 generations!

About US
Pumpkin Pie Kids story begins when my Mom started designing and creating her own line of clothing called Pumpkin Pie Designs, this was inspired when her first grandchildren were born!  Creating her own patterns, cutting and sewing her unique reversible creations, she sold them in Craft Shows like the Filberg Festival and Circle Craft.  
My Mom and I both had the desire to create and design and it had been a dream to do it together!  Back in the early 80's I took some pattern making courses and my mom and I began creating and making bodysuits for aerobics and selling them at the local craft market.

In 1992 my Mom opened up her first retail store in Nanaimo, which featured her own creations plus many other wonderful brands. My husband and I, along with our kids, relocated to Nanaimo and I joined my Mom in her adventure!  I knew my daughter had the fashion & design gene too, when at a young age, she made herself a pair of flip flops to wear.  She also loved working with her grandma to create her own designs and fashion trends. Today we no longer make our own clothing line, instead curate the best lines available to sell in our store and on-line.  My Mom has now retired and my daughter earned a degree in Bachelor of Design and has left the store and moved to pursue her new career.
