About Us

I opened bean sprout as a bricks and mortar store in Toronto in 1995. I am proud to say that it was voted the best children's clothing shop in Toronto, was listed as one of Toronto's Top 200 stores by Toronto Life Magazine and appeared on The Mom Show. 

After 16 successful years I have transformed bean sprout into an on-line store to conveniently provide exciting brands, exemplary customer service, excellent quality and unique fashion for children ages newborn to 12 years. I am passionate about bright, colourful clothing and accessories for children and I personally select each item based on its style, quality, wear-ability and price. You can shop here with confidence at an on-line store you can trust.

Trish was born and raised in Toronto and started her first business in her parent's basement when she was 16. She bought a kiln, made clay pots and filled them with herbs and spices for cooking. When Trish was 20 she opened one of the first non-vintage resale shops for women in Toronto called Change Gear Boutique. She then went on to earn a diploma in Public Relations at Humber College. After a career in Fundraising and Public Relations Trish opened bean sprout in 1995 when her son was 7. She has volunteered her time and expertise to women wanting to start their own business and supports local and community fundraising efforts.
