Babies to tweens


Proud grandmother of two toddlers, interior decorator Debbie Belton has opened a new children’s boutique, Littles by Matamo Designs, at 115 E. 5th St., Mount Dora, which is next door to her Matamo Designs business.

“This has been my dream since I opened my first shop 10 years ago,” Debbie says, noting a section of her original store always featured a baby section.

“It started out little and kept growing. I had no more room for all of the stuff I kept wanting to buy, and having the grandchildren made it even worse in my shopping at trade shows,” Debbie says.

Littles allows her to buy and show more adorable items available for shoppers to purchase, everything from children’s décor, furniture, plush toys, puzzles, books, playsets for babies, to gifts for tweens.
