Kids grow. Fast. It seems like every time you turn around, they’ve outgrown another pair of shoes or their favorite shirt doesn’t fit anymore.
Don’t even get us started on babies. The entire reason there are any Baby Resale stores at all is because they can outgrow a onesie faster than you can shop for a replacement.
And clothes and toys are expensive. So, if you’re looking to save some money, and help our environment, then take a look at these thrift stores and resale shops that offer gently used children’s clothes and toys. Some even offer consignment sales, so you can trade in the gently used items junior never liked for some new duds he’s sure to love.
