Avout Oh Baby!
In 1994, interior and clothing design maven, Mary Lauer, opened her first retail store, featuring handcrafted furniture and intricately hand-painted children’s clothing. As she’s never been one to shy from a challenge, the tiny shop rapidly and successfully evolved into both oh baby! (a magical children’s clothing and furniture store), a sister store, que sera’ (an interior design and boutique furnishings happy place), and most recently an international distribution company for her original children’s clothing designs. Today, Mary and her husband, Tom, are at the forefront on the Makers’ Movement, as the owners of three oh baby! boutiques, que sera’ interior design studio and Happy Family Designs, the oh baby! brand design/production company based in the Arts District of Northeast Minneapolis, Minnesota.
