I really enjoy shopping at this store for my little ones. They have great specials they post on facebook which me and my wife like to take advantage of. Almost everything we purchase from here could pass as new with at least 50% off or more from retail prices! We also take our used baby items in & exchange them for new ones & I have always been happy with the fair trade value

I have bought my furniture from this store & just about every other larger item I needed for my baby & at such savings off retail!. I also just recently traded back in my carseat/stroller travel system & used the credit to buy a brand new jogging stroller. I love the christian music playing in the background & the staff is super friendly! :-) I will continue to tell all my friends that this is the place to shop!!

I have shopped here for the past two years. I love how super friendly the employees are! I started selling my things in the last year as my child grew out of them. I took some of my maternity & kids clothes to sell & expected to get maybe $50 store credit. To my surprise I got $128!!! Sweeet! I bought some new Disney DVDs for my kids stocking stuffers & some super cute clothes & have tons of credit left over! I also sold my stroller/carseat travel system & swing. I was offered cash for those items but decided to use the credit (which was $16 more than the cash amount) towards a new jogging stroller. I always leave the store super happy & will continue to refer my friends to them :-)

I have enjoyed shopping in this store for 5 years now & I love it!! The staff is super friendly & I sell all my kids outgrown items for new ones. They have also recently made some changes to the store that are very nice!

and by the way...the store credit policy is posted on the front of the buying sheet when you sign in to sell your items, as well as the internet and I think also posted on the wall. I also overhear the staff constatnly telling people if they sell clothes the credit is good on all smaller items like clothes, shoes, books, toys and if you sell larger equipment items its good on everything in the store. When I sold my items the staff told me to bring it in clean so I could get paid more. Sellers cant get mad if they bring in items filthy dirty & get paid $50 then come back & see them priced for $125, when the owner has to pay people to clean these items making their cost to sell the item much higher.

I have to agree with many of the reviewers here-- going to sell your items here is a HUGE waste of time. They are so incredibly unorganized, the normal wait time (even if you're 2nd on the list) is an hour and a half. Once they finally get to you, they don't even take the time to look at what you have completely (all the clothes). When exchanging for store credit, they give you so little for what they actually take and mark up their prices so high, you're lucky if you have enough for a couple of clothes items!!!
They sell themselves as a "christian-owned/ Christian-run" business, but the way they run their business doesn't seem very Christian at all, just plain greedy and inconsiderate!!

First, let me start by saying that I truly enjoy the people who work there and the owners. They are great, friendly people and they have always been helpful and kind when we are shopping there. Unfortunately though over the last couple years the prices have gone way up. I also notice on quite a few occasions that they have bought clearance items from Old Navy, pulled tags off and priced them higher. (Old clearance tags are still partially visible) Many items can be found cheaper at the store NEW! I get that they are a business and need to make money, but...it doesn't seem right to knowingly charge more for something. I hope that they will soon go back to the way they used to price their items... I know that I won't be buying there until they do.

I have shopped here many times and got some really good deals. I have never sold to them, so I wouldn't know. They have been really friendly and the place is clean. But I would not say that it is the busiest or most popular. I usually go to one in Lamesa too. Now they are busy!!!

It makes you wonder when you see bad reviews and think didnt these peoples parents teach them, if you dont have anything nice to say, dont say it at all! What are they teaching their children! I know the owners and have been shopping in their store and their previous stores for years almost on a weekly basis. They are terrific people w/ good morals and they run a great business. The employees are very friendly and helpful and their prices and selections are great. I know that they are the busiest and largest resale store in all of San Diego They only play Christian music and Christian childrens dvds. Any business that stands out like this is bound to be scrutinized and judged harder by others, especially non believers. Christians are not perfect only forgiven by the one who is!Try this place, I love it and all my friends love it too!

I have 4 children and I like to save money. A friend of mine told me to sell some of my used baby items to this store and get store credit to purchase new items. First of all I went to their website to get the info on their buying days. I load all the baby stuff and baby in the car and when i get there they tell me they are not buying until a different day. Okay. No biggie. I come back as told and wait a half hour for someone to help me. Then they want to buy my items for an extremely low rip off price and they tell me that I can only use store credit for certain items. What? Why is that? I just took my stuff home with me. It was not worth the waste of time. This is a terrible over priced store, with rude employees!

Okay, so I sold some items to the Baby Exchange. Never again! I sold items because I needed to buy some items for my new baby. I wanted a specific type of baby swing, so I've patiently waited. I accepted "store credit" for my sale. They've had my items (which they ripped me off for...but that's another story) since June. I went in to "cash in" my store credit...and found out that certain items cannot be purchased with "store credit." What!!! What IS store credit then? It seems like this owner's greed will be her downfall. I'm a business woman but their policies seem to change daily. They have like TEN signs up at the register that spell out their policies. No thanks! Next time I'll donate my items to my church. They aren't forthcoming or honest. By the way, their furniture is MARKED WAY UP. I found a changer/dresser combo on Babies R Us online store for almost $200 less than they were selling it for. Don't waste your time here...they will rob you!
