What are Parents Saying about our Retail Store?
"Jillian's has the best selection of natural parenting products of anywhere I have seen. The store is meticulously organized, clean, and very parent-friendly/baby friendly (easy access bathrooms and changing area, toys for kids to play with, nursing nook etc.). They carry all of the best brands (so I never have to pay shipping yay!), and always have sales and promotions going on. The most wonderful part of Jillian's Drawers is their customer service. It is second to none. They are the friendliest, most accommodating, sincere people. I cant say enough good things about my favorite store! P.S. Online shopping is a breeze too!"
-Jenna from Newfield, NY
"I love this store. Has all the diaper advice I need. I use trifolds and found that the covers I used for my first daughter just dont work for my second skinnier one! I also can find great shoes and natural products, like stainless steel sippy cups. I always have fun there."
Charlotte from Ithaca, NY
"I had read on mom blogs and parenting forums about a 21 day trial of cloth diapers for $10 at Jillian's Drawers! Once I got pregnant, I started doing more research and then realized that Jillians Drawers is right in my town! My husband and I went in to see the cloth diapers in person and try to get a feel for what kind of system would work for us. The sales lady was extremely helpful and knowledgeable and spent about 20-30 minutes showing us different types and answering our questions. I also like that they have a registry feature on their website!! The initial investment for cloth diapers can be daunting, so being able to register is really nice!"

Map to our Retail Store
We are located right on the middle of the Ithaca Commons. If you have several places to visit downtown, and want to wander around The Commons, just park anywhere near the Commons and head to the middle. It's the most carefree way to find us the first time! We're across from Waffle Frolic and next door to 10,000 Villages.
Otherwise, for the most direct access, youll want to be on Green Street (one-way street heading east), passing the Public Library on your right and City Hall on your left. Then:For quick in and out parking:
Simply park in the metered 24/7 parking lot right past City Hall, on the left. Its $1.50/hour and then youre just steps from our store and the entire Commons. This meter needs to be paid every day of the week, every hour of the day.For longer parking, or free parking on weekends:
Turn left into the Green Street Parking Garage directly above the 24/7 metered parking. The entrance is right past the Cinemapolis movie theater. Its across from Green Street Pharmacy and Urban Outfitters.
Once you park in the garage, you can take the elevator or stairs down to the ground level and head towards The Commons. It's nice, because you don't have to worry about always feeding the meter. Only $1/hour!Street Parking:
Free on weekends and after 6:00 pm, $1.50/hour otherwise. Can be hard to find some days, easy on others. Metered spaces are located on almost all streets surrounding The Commons.
