I'm Carla Salazar, owner of The L'il Shop of Science Ltd. ?I've had the business for 3 years, but I worked before there as a employee, for maybe 5 years.??I really enjoy working there, because I have the chance to meet people, help them to find the perfect gift for their love ones, or for their children's friends birthday.
At L'il Shop of Science, you can find?unique?items,?something that the children can build, play and learn, we always are bringing something new and excited, and what our customers always say in here you find something that others don't have.
We now do BIRTHDAY PARTIES at the?store, on Sundays, we do experiments, also we provide the materials, so the kids can do the experiments with us.
See you there!?
