Hello! Welcome to Abby's Lane, a unique boutique offering products to make your parenting experience enjoyable and a little closer to nature. I am Stephanie, owner and founder of Abby's Lane, which opened in September of 2004, we are currently located in Northern Virginia. Abby's Lane has operated in several locations, including a store front in Old Town Manassas for a few years, and is now operating back as an online boutique. By supporting Abby's Lane, you support a team of 5 women who are able to work flexible schedules, and bring their children to work with them.
Our cloth diaper journey began with Abby in 2003, Camille, Lucy, Sebastian and Jaxson have been cloth diapered from birth. I was a reluctant participant at first, I believed the myth that cloth diapering is messy, messy, and...well...messy! I assure you that is entirely false! Cloth diapering has been the most wonderful experience, and if my husband is an advocate, anyone can do it~
The products I carry at Abby's Lane are carefully chosen to make your cloth diapering experience an easy and enjoyable one.

Her cloth diaper journey began with Abby in 2003. Camille, Lucy, Sebastian and Jaxson have been cloth diapered from birth. She was a reluctant participant at first, and believed the myth that cloth diapering is messy, messy, and...well...messy! Now she can assure you that is entirely false! She says cloth diapering has been the most wonderful experience, and "if my husband is an advocate, anyone can do it!"
Melanie is an import from the west coast of Canada, moved countries for love.
Wife to Tim, momma to Paxton and stepmom to Reagan, being a mom is her favourite thing. Former preschool teacher, always dreamed of being a breastfeeding, stay at home, cloth diapering, baby wearing mom and now has her dream. Loves working part time at Abby's Lane with Paxton in tow. Enjoys knitting, reading, gardening and yoga. Thinks one of the best parts of working at Abby's Lane is being able to meet so many local parents!
Nicole is the stay-at-home mom of a preschooler and a toddler.

Jana married her summer camp sweetheart, Matthew and now has Lily, Jack and a baby on the way. She used to study Art History and Conservation but is now content with finger painting and crayons. When the weather gets warm you can find them with their fleet of tricycles, hiking, swimming, playing sports or even eating ice cream.
Stephanie is mom to an amazing toddler, a student (again!) studying historic preservation, and a volunteer at a local winery. In her free time she enjoys baking, exploring the DC metro area with her family, and working in her garden. Stephanie began cloth diapering their daughter after showing her husband how much better it is for their baby, the environment and their wallet! She loves being able to spread her knowledge of cloth diapering and babywearing with everyone!
