Fashion and kids’ workshops collide at Babylon, NY boutiques

February 12, 2021 – Newsday – Fashion and early childhood education might seem like they’d be at opposite ends of an interest spectrum, but they’re both passions for Jenny Dellafranca who’s successfully made a business out of both at her Bubble shops in Babylon, Long Island.

Dellafranca’s Bubble East store carries clothing, jewelry, accessories, books, home décor and more and offers activities such as creative workshops. And Bubble for children features everything from apparel for newborns to age six to toys and on and off-site birthday parties, “adult and me” classes, kids’ summer and school break camps and crafts. Bubble, located at 15 E. Main St., opened in 2008 and Bubble East opened in 2017 at 25 E. Main St.

The women’s fashion at Bubble East is “hand-picked to tailor toward all of life’s best days,” Dellafranca says. She adds that includes a day at the beach, a backyard barbecue, work, a night out with the girls, at home by the fire or a “sexy date night.”

“I have always had a love of all things beautiful, unique, classic yet trendy, fun and creative since a young age,” explains Dellafranca, a 44-year-old mother of four young boys who lives in Babylon Village. “I loved fashion and designing but also had a huge passion for early childhood education.” She notes, “Fresh out of college I was a kindergarten teacher in the public school system and loved every minute. In my free time, I designed semiprecious jewelry and started getting a lot of requests for custom pieces.”

Having the two Bubble businesses has been ideal, Dellafranca adds.
