Fernando Lopez and his mom, Auraluz O’Byrne celebrate 48 years in business! Twenty years ago, the Children’s Shop expanded to include gifts as well and enjoys their great current location in Metairie.  The owners feel fortunate to be in a community that has been so loyal and supportive and in which they have developed so many friendships. The business was started by Auraluz sewing and creating the band. As a single mom and out of necessity, the hobby turned into a business. The first store was opened in Kenner and was only 300 square feet. Since then, Auraluz has remained a growing and thriving business in the area. In regards to their relationship with Kids & Family, Fernando says it has been wonderful to work with and grow together too.  The quality and format of Kids & Family along with its distribution have allowed us to reach so many areas.  Through the years he feels he has received great service and seen both quality and value increase.  Looking forward to another 20 years together. We are proud and privileged to continue to work with and serve such a remarkable business and owners.
