I have been shopping at The Duck Pond for 10 years for my granddaughters and for gifts for others. It is not suitable to have young children "pawing" through merchandise (it is an expensive shop) and certainly not appropriate to have children test boundaries by being "loose" from their mothers (firm) grip......and the owners have a right (and obligation to the rest of us who shop there to keep little ones from getting into the merchandise!)
I love their clothing and accessories! These ladies also support the community, ie CHOC and have donated to my Guild!!! They also did a very personal favor for me the other day...I will always support them and their endeavors...
This is THE place to shop when you need (or want!) that very special gift...great inventory and great sales! I travel from Laguna Hills regularly!
