PAGE 8 POST-GAZE'I-rE, APRIL 7, 2017 Tiny CloChes, Dig 5t, at, ernent;: A New Baby Boutique Arrives in the North Encl by Alexis Carole Owner Jeanette Cataldo, pictured next to one of her custom floral arrangements. A stork has arrived in the North End, delivering pint-sized shoes and dresses to a brand new baby boutique! Located at 42 Prince Street, right between Hanover and Salem Street, Cataldo's Baby Boutique features a wide variety of infant apparel, eclectic design pieces, and custom specialty items. Owner Jeanette Cataldo, a Boston-based interior designer with over twenty years of experience, fulfills a longtime passion with this unique business venture. A graduate of New England School of Arts & Design, Cataldo opened her successful interior design company back in 2014, but decided now was the perfect time to focus on her love for fashion, =Everyone says, 'why do you want the baby boutique'," states Cataldo. =Well I adore clothes, and when I had the opportunity at this point in my life, I thought, what's something different? So I made the baby boutique and I love it," she says. Cataldo knew from the start that she didn't want to sell women's wear, and her shop is tmlike any other. With doll-sized garments lining the bright showroom walls, it's the first of its kind in the area. =This is the only baby boutique where you can actually come in and buy things," she says. "From sleepers to a wedding. I am very accommodating to anyone who comes in. If you want something, if you need something, I can make it happen. I try to make this an experience." North End Celebrates Annual St. Joseph's Table by Sal Giarratani The Annual St. Joseph's Table celebration was held once again on Sunday, March 19'h, at the St. Joseph Society on Hanover Street. Each year, the Society honors its patron Saint with a dinner. This year, once again, the place was packed. Father Antonio from St. Leonard Church arrived, blessed all the food on the "Table" and everyone started the meal by first breaking off a piece of the crossed-shaped bread which was the centerpiece of the table. Everyone had a great time breaking bread together and sharing each other's friendship. (Of course, they were also waiting patiently to get their zeppole pastry in honor of St. Joseph, too!) It is always a fun day of celebration leading in to the quickly approaching Easter celebration a month away. L-R: Marnie and Jimmy Martarano and daughter-in-law Kristin with Gracie and Luke.

Everything in the boutique is hand picked by Cataldo, who is very meticulous when it comes to choosing the items up for sale. "We get the pieces from Europe and I carefully select every single item. I have to see it, feel it, touch it, research it, and then I can bring it into the shop," she. says. When asked about her favorite item in the showroom, she replied, =D.efinitely the horse's head. It's imported all the way from Indonesia." The showroom also features a giant giraffe named Georgie, a medley of Tuscan kitchen pieces, and striking window displays that she rearranges at least twice a month. Cataldo makes sure everything in her boutique is carefully orchestrated. Whether it's the custom floral arrangements that she makes herself, or tying a ribbon onto each and every gift box, it is evident that everything in the shop is designed with love. Cataldo's Baby Boutique is open Monday through Sunday, be sure to visit the Prince Street location or the boutique's Facebook page to find out morel Matt .o Gatlo Appraisals Sales & Rentals Real Estate 376 North Street * Boston, MA 02113 (617) 523-2100 * Fax (617) 523-3530 Jimmy Martarano (R} thanking Father Antonio L-R: Peter and Cheryl BagareUa holding Peter for blessing the table.
