This store is desprite and will take ANYTHING you have to give with no reguard the condition!
They take advantage of people wanting to just rid of stuff and will low ball as far as they can go!!
I've sold to this store a few times, they take your stuff through the side alley of the store and don't have the room or the decentency to bring everything into the store you brought... you can't see all of what they're taking ......
the lady in the back will throw around you baby clothes, toys and books without really looking at them while talking away to the staff about personal things... taking things that are stained, broken... etc and relays the amount she came up with in her head while NOT paying attention to what she was doing....
This store sells damaged stuff, and very, very used/dirty items!
Wouldn't go back if you paid me!

I went in with a basket of folded clean girl clothes and they didn't want any of them just socks, mittens, and booties and gave me $10 store credit.They had just giving someone else $50 cash. I had so many cute clothes in the basket with no stains, rips, or faded. I was browsing through the store and i find nothing i liked for a boy, if i did it was faded. I can find better clothes in a thrift store. I'm better off selling them in a yard sale.

I do not agree with dazzleddes review at all. I continue to find nice items at great prices. I bought almost everything there for my baby including crib, stroller, wardrobe and even bedding and toys. The store is smaller than some and I think that is why they can charge a whole lot less than some stores. Sure you might get a few extra dollars buy selling it to some other place but for me I would rather support a store who is committed to having their prices lower to help moms like me out. I find nice name brand such as Gymboree and even found a LULU dress last week and I also find target type brand stuff. Some days I don't find much and on other days I score. The new owners are great just as the past were too. Change is different but sometimes good. Give it a chance!!!

Pros: BEST PRICES! NICE ITEMS! GREAT BARGAINS!

Cons: wish they had more stores.

To all who think that the baby trader is not worth it anymore. YOU ARE CRAZY! I sell my stuff to them and I rarely get anything returned to me. If you bring in junk they are not going to buy it. They have always paid me fair and are always nice. When you donate your items that they did not want to buy from you, they give it away! They will take it off your hands so that you don't have to deal with it. You can always keep your stuff! I find great items for both my daughter and my son every time I go. New owners came in a while ago and it took a little time for them to get in the swing of things but all in all I think they are doing a swell job. GO AND FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF, don't listen to other posts they don't know what they are talking about.

Some shoes are good buy. Clothes is over priced. If you sell them clothes they get 3 out of 10 and walk out feeling ripped off. However, they take donations? silly huh? Yes, I have overheard many women feel ripped off. I have also overheard women donate there clothes tons because they were not bought back; I wouldn't donate anything to this people cause they overprice big time. Some pregnancy clothes is a good buy but many items are over priced. Their stock is a lot shorter then before, any clue? I rather buy off cragslist now to help a fellow military or person in need, plus is tax free and more money on the hands of "many" not on the "few"

I go to Baby Trader in La Mesa about once a week for new clothes and other items for my son. They always have good prices and good quality stuff. No rips, stains, or dingy clothing. I bought a 2nd crib there today. I have 2 boys under 2 years old and this place makes it possible for me to stay in my budget. They almost always have a good size inventory of swings, cribs, bassinets, pack n plays, strollers, and bouncers. A++++++++ in my book.

I am just wondering if you all went here before they got new owners???? I think it is so bad now now nothing but cheap clothing that I could buy at target or walmart for the same cost. Also dont try to bring items in for them to buy back any more, I dont know if they have no clue on high end brand names or what but I have made alot more money even after the cost to list on ebay. I will point out one nice thing they are nice but I would bet the store will close this year . One more bad thing the store is a mess !!!!!

So Sad to see a good business go down

One of the review's I think id for a different store in a different city. The La Mesa one has gone way down hill since the new owners took over. They are very nice but the clothes are mostly Target and walmart now I dont buy those brands I used to find all sorts of better quality clothes. Dont bother bring stuff in to sale anymore they are not good a buying back it was a total rip off and that was the comment I heard from everyone else. I didnt see the quality of any one else's clothing but I know that all my items are very top quality and no rips or stains. I was givin $12.00 . The old owners were not as nice at all but much better at buying and what they choose to resell. I am not by any means a snob but I can go to target or walmart and get new clothes for near the price of the used ones. I used to enjoy going to Baby Trader 2 times a week to buy high end clothes at a discount. I will not be back any time soon. I have better luck at Amvets on Skyline.
Good Luck

Awesome prices, friendly service! A great mom and pop resale shop. We have been going here since they opened. We used to shop at the baby exchange but the prices are no longer fair and the buy back prices are terrible there. At the Baby Trader it may be a lil' smaller then most places but they sell things at extremely fair prices and offer more to buy back items then most other places. I have found things NWT and NIP there so it is a great place to purchase baby shower gifts or presents on a budget. I think you will find this store just as price friendly as craigslist if not sometimes better and that says allot to me!

PROS: great prices and service
CONS: small store

I heard about this store when I was pregnant from a woman that was in the laundromat next door to it - I am sorry to say I waited until my daughter was 7 months old to stop in. Bully for me I could have saved a bundle! They have anything you would need for your child and so many of the extras that aren't necessary, but nice to have, at prices that won't break the bank! The trade in value that they give is very fair compared to a lot of other places. The owners are so nice and seem to be (in my opinion) very family oriented - I was told by them that they would not sell anything that they wouldn't put their own kids in - which is wonderful! If you haven't been there don't wait to check it out! You will be so happy you did!

PROS: Great Service - Affordable - Clean

Baby Trader Childrens Resale is one of the few resale shops that actually gives you fair value for the baby items that you bring in for them to buy back. While many stores offer you a whole lot less then the item is actually worth, and then turn it around and sell it for a whole lot more, Baby Trader Childrens Resale does the opposite, they pay you a fair value for your items, and then turn around and sell them in their store at prices you, and other parents just like you can actually afford. Some of the items in the store look brand new, and even "gently used" items will definately stand up to a lot of wear, tear, and love. Your child grows so fast when they are small, why not buy high quality stuff for your baby for less. It makes no sense to pay full price at overly priced chain stores, when you can get the same exact items here for a whole lot less. The store is clean, and they are very up to date on current recalls, and will not sell anything that there has been a recall on. The prices, as I already mentioned are very affordable, and the employees are friendly, caring, and eager to answer your questions. Unlike some resale shops, you won't find spotted clothes here, instead you will find clothes that have been washed and "smell like new". Whether you are looking for something for your own child, or you are looking to purchase a gift, if you don't want to spend a fortune on baby gear the child will outgrow, give Baby Trader Childrens Resale a try, you won't be sorry that you did.

I've been in this store twice. The second time I went in was much better. Their racks had been cleared out so you could find stuff and they had a better selection across the board than previously.
They even had a nursing pillow I could previously only find on the Internet.
They had good deals on onesies and T-shirts-- at $1- $2 each, much cheaper than stores, plus no worse for wear, no stains or anything. They seem to have washed all their clothes to the same uniform scent-- last time I was in it smelled like old clothes, but not anymore.

I love this store, and always check there first ,when I need a baby item of any sort. They have loads of baby equipment, bedding, toys, books, clothing, if a baby/toddler needs it, they probably have it. They also buyback items you no longer need, and give you either cash or store credit. It is a family-owned business and they are so very nice,. and only sell items that meet safety standars and are in excellent condition Prices are very, very reasonable. Fun for kids too, they play with toys while you shop!!
