It’s so much fun to dress your baby or toddler up in adorable dresses, darling onesies, and funny message t-shirts.
But it also adds up quickly, especially since babies outgrow outfits in just a couple of months.
Happily, there is another option: Shopping resale shops for trendy clothing at reasonable prices. Here are five of our favorites in the Kansas City area.
This children’s boutique offers both new and new-to-you clothing, including brands like Gymboree, Janie and Jack, Justice, and Ralph Lauren.
You’ll find clothing here for sizes newborn through age 12, but you’ll also find a wide selection of toys, as well as baby gear like highchairs, bouncers, and strollers.
This consignment shop offers event sales throughout the year. Admission is always free and items you’ll find there include gently-used or new children’s clothing, toys, electronics, sports and play equipment, shoes, books, software, movies, games, strollers, furniture, baby equipment, nursery items and decor, and more.
This franchise has locations across the country, making it the nation’s leading buyer and seller of gently used children’s goods. You’ll find clothing, of course, but also books, toys, gear, and furniture.
Before you know it, your baby will be a teenager. And because your little darling will be nearly full-grown, that means your clothing expenses will go way down. Wrong! Baby Lulu will be replaced by Lululemon and $98 yoga pants. Baby Gap jeans will be replaced by $150 designer jeans. And that’s where Plato’s Closet, a trendy second-hand shop for teens, comes into play. They know what teens like—and you’ll find it here.
How to Sell Baby Clothes
While every resale shop is different, most post guidelines instructing you what they’re looking for on their websites. Most shops want clean clothing in great condition. Usually, there are specified dates and times when clothing is accepted. Most shops take clothing on consignment, meaning you’ll get paid when your clothes sell. There are some shops, however, that pay cash on the spot.
Children bring a lot of love to a home, but they also take up a lot of space.
