The Cozy Cottage has more than one reason to celebrate the New Year: It recently won Best of the Metroplex 2010 for Best Kid’s Clothing Store.

Owner Cynthia Herndon says, “You had to have 50 nominations just to be on the ballot, and there were only three stores in the metroplex that made the 50 cutoff. We couldn’t believe we had 50; we didn’t even know we were nominated!”

The store is been nominated for the WFAA AList Best Children’s Clothing award.

“Last year we came in third, which was really cool because Hollywood Ranch, who makes and designs all of their own clothing won, and then in second place was Baylor Medical Center’s Simply Mom’s. We were tickled with third; we couldn’t believe it. We’d be thrilled with third, truthfully, because that’s up there with the big guys.”

Results for the WFFA AList will be announced Jan. 3.

If you’re in the neighborhood and wish to congratulate Herndon, be sure to check out the Semi Annual Clearance beginning Jan. 2-31, on all fall and winter clothing.
