Kids' Ketch, situated in the former Franklin Hardware building in
Downtown Lewes, first originated across the street in a 450 square foot shop in
May of 1990. Owner, Teresa Ford, raising two young children, felt there was a
need for quality toys in the area. As anticipated, the store filled a
much-needed niche, and she soon moved out of her first store to a
new
location up the street,
doubling in size. In late 1997, still yearning for
more space, she and her
husband Jim purchased the In addition
to toys, books and games for all ages, the shop
originally
carried small accessory items for kids like
hats and T-shirts. Years back,
Kids' Ketch branched out further
in the fashion world and the store now
carries a broad selection of
playwear for newborn to size 14. "We like to say
we carry the clothes
kids love to wear- comfortable and stylish,” said
Teresa.

Over the years, running the shop has been a family affair, with
Jim,
her children, Jacob and Maren, and her mother, Mary Pritchett all

working in the shop. The store manager, Karin Evick, started working
at Kid’s Ketch when she was 14 years old. Now Karin’s young son enjoys
visiting
the store. "We are seeing the children of the children who used
to shop with
us when they were young. It’s fun seeing the next generation
coming in."

So, if you're one of the generations of devoted Kids' Ketch
shoppers
(and a kid at heart no matter what your age) thanks for your fun and

support. And, if you haven’t met us yet, stop in and say hi; there's

always something new and fun going
on here for kids of all ages.
