If you’ve always dressed your children to a t, then you’ll love the upscale children’s boutique Miki House. Miki House is a Japanese company who used to sell its retail in high-end stores like Bloomingdales and even from its locations in Paris. Luckily for us, they’ve opened a new location in Downtown Bellevue and carry clothing for newborns to children up to age 7. The pieces are pricey, but they are definitely well-made and very cute. They have multiple clothing lines (dependent on age), and they also carry toys and accessories. This is Miki House’s first U.S. store and it is located at 1032 106th Ave., Suite 123.
