The Little Dutch Girl started out as something to do after the kids grew up and husband, Tom, worked abroad. There was this cute little shopping village, called Old Town Spring, just 5 minutes from the house. Elsa was born in The Hague, Holland, so a little Dutch shop sort of came naturally. This was 1986. In 1987 the bottom dropped out of the oil industry and Geophysicists like Tom were out of a job. The time had come to get more serious about that little Dutch shop. Tom joined the Little Dutch Girl and became the maker of our now famous Fudge with the Dutch Touch, made with cocoa imported from Holland. Sadly Tom passed away in 2009. He was instrumental in our success and we still miss him every day .
Our slogan is "Almost Everything from Holland". The "Almost" lets us get away with a few things not at all Dutch, such as the Bluebird of Happiness.They just look great in our shop.
