Summer Camp 2018– Big Changes Happening at Belmont Kidz!
Hey Belmont Kidz family!
Last year has been a blur of big changes for us here at Belmont Kidz, including a new move and a BIG transition in what we can offer our community here in Long Beach. Here are a couple announcements that we are excited to share with you.
We are proud to announce we will continue to offer our NEW curriculum of enrichment classes for children ages 2-6 into Summer of 2018, as well as our all-new Summer Camp for Kidz.
In addition, we will be offering an Early Bird Special for all customers who make a purchase from 1pm-2pm Tuesday through Friday.
Classes to be offered this semester include Gardening and Wellness, Drama Troop, Drum Circle, Lego Club, and Mindfulness and Meditation. These classes will feature small, intimate class settings and range from 60-90 minutes long, Our Summer Camp will be three hours long and will include a wide range of activities for every tot.
As always, we offer consignment and our free weekly storytime, Thursdays at 4pm. All mommies and babies from NB-3 are welcome!
With love and light,
As many of you know the store is family owned. In January my husband was hit by a car while he was riding on his bicycle. Unfortunately, this accident broke his foot in several places requiring a cage of pins to hold his foot together. So, I have been managing the store, kids, homeschooling, home duties, paying bills all while doing my best to be a loving wife. All this being said.. I will be open mostly for workshops, appointments for shopping and consignment these next two months as my husband heals.
Humbled. Our dearest Sarah one of our favorite most senior interns who has basically become family has created a gofundme page to help the store stay afloat while all this is happening. Here is the link should you want to help. Again it is, https://www.gofundme.com/belmont-kidz-needs-your-help.
I will gladly come in any day and time of the week provided I have at least 2-24 hour notice.
You may book an appointment by calling or texting (562) 270-3635
However, I will usually be there at the store Wednesday through Saturday 12-5:30 pm.
Hey Belmont Kidz family! We have a quick update.
We are changing our store hours, beginning this month to our winter hours.
SUN – TUES: By Appointment for shopping and consignment
WED – SAT: 11 am- 5 :30 pm
We will be hosting workshops and other classes outside of these hours as well.
Call today to learn more our exciting, wholesome summer camp and homeschooling classes!

Past Life Memories
September 27, 2017
I loved being in the kitchen and around food more than anything else. I changed, because my life changed. I prioritized & rolled with it.
My life is changing again; so again, I must rethink/re-evaluate my life.
Right now, Belmont Kidz is my passion because I love getting to know people who come through my door. I enjoy sharing life stories. I learn we are all the same with different backgrounds and handle things differently. Everyone who walks into my store is treated with RESPECT no matter what my perception. I live by following my heart~#titanium Everyone deserves respect.
I am also that “one” who believes there is a little “light” in everyone.
But, I am getting overwhelmed. Belmont Kidz is truly a community project. It is not a one woman show. I can not do this alone. I don’t want to stop providing a much needed service of decluttering closets, reducing waste in landfills by recycling children’s clothing and baby gear. The money usually go to the kids so they feel good about purging. Belmont kidz also gives back. Items not sold are donated to Long Beach charities including: For the Child, Precious Lambs preschool, Little Sunshine House as well as Long Beach Womens Shelter.
The parent & me classes, storytimes I enjoy doing as well. If you have come into the store and talked to me you would know I am a wealth of information and ideas. Connecting parents to talk about their kids is an awesome feeling. Sometimes, we just want to know we are not alone in the struggle of parenting.
Some expectations for you all:
* Hours will be changing so I can focus more on online sales.
* Clothing that provides the “wow” or “uniqueness” will more likely be accepted. The “wow” makes tagging fun because I look forward to showing your stuff.
*We will be looking for volunteers to help out in the store and community garden.
*More community family time in the store. I love to entertain and mingle!

Hello Belmont Kidz friends and family!
Walking around Long Beach, you may have noticed a couple familiar faces on the side of a bus advertising Belmont Kidz children’s store and the LB Pacific Gateway internship programs. This program connects youth looking for work experience with local business owners looking for help growing their brand.
I don’t have the words to express the gratitude I feel towards this program. I took over the store in June, not realizing how much work it takes to run a consignment store– the previous business owner, Miguel, directed me to the Youth Opportunity Center, where I was added to the list of choices a youth could spend their internship at.
These interns that were connected to me through this program have helped me maintain the store and grow the business. There have been a few mishaps– nobody’s perfect– and if you’re willing to take a chance, it’s a wonderful program to help any small business grow.
Patience and gratitude goes back long way! I open up my doors to any of you business owners that have questions about my experience with Pacific Gateway.
Thank you Pacific Gateway for helping grow my business!
