‘COOL clothes for cool kids,’ that’s how owners, former fashion designer Andrea Andrews and former finance executive Lisa Primeggia, describe their funky new shop, which until recently only carried girls’ sizes 2T to 16 and boys’ sizes 2T to 20. But, after seeing one too many high-schoolers disappointed that they’d grown too big for the boutique’s clothes, Andrews and Primeggia have started a juniors section for girls and young men. And prices? ‘You can always find something for less than twenty-five dollars,’ Andrews claims.

For kids who love to sew, dye, and appliqué, Groovy on Grand Design Studios is DIY heaven. Not only can youngsters make their own clothes and accessories, there are workshops, classes, and summer camp sessions devoted to budding crafters who want to learn funky and fancy techniques. It’s also starting a boys’ camp this year, as well as a digital design class. Co-owner Andrea Andrews, a Croton-on-Hudson mom, she gives the studio a groovy, hip feel.
