With the most adorable children’s aesthetic, pops of color and cool toys entice moms, dads and young kids to the cutest Covington shop.

Customers are met at the door with a colorful entrance into a children’s wonderland of books, games, gifts and accessories. As best friends and business partners, Brittney and Suzy started their journey in design school when they jokingly ditched the idea of working in the corporate world. The small business, founded in friendship, has since produced two storefronts, Handzy and Gumdrop.

Handzy & Gumdrop

Handzy came first, as the women’s clothing, lifestyle accessories, paper goods and gifts studio. Handzy holds its own line of watercolor greeting cards designed in house and they are simply silly and adorable! Showcasing other small businesses, Handzy is home to super fun gifts like Baggu, Mons Calpe candles, washi tape, stickers, hair clips, boutique style clothing, journals and more.

GumDrop Shopping

Gumdrop, following in its predecessor’s footsteps, is nothing short of cute, modern practical joy for tiny tots. Open Tuesday-Sunday, Gumdrop puts a smile on everyone’s face with great gifts like easy grip jumbo brush markers, silicone bibs, magnetic playsets, and childrens books on diversity, mixed families and kindness. At Gumdrop, you will find toys and accessories not seen in traditional large retail stores.

Buy Online, Free Pickup In-Store

The online shops at both Handzy and Gumdrop allow for free pick up in-store, typically within 24 hours. Great sales are often posted online from 0-5T clothing, linen rattles, wooden toys, water shoes and the occasional gift for mom. Online shopping has never been more fun, it’s nearly impossible to not be filled with joy when shopping at Gumdrop!
