My wife loves this place. Every time we are in the area we stop in to see what they have. The owner is super friendly and they always have such great prices and nice items.

The first time I can here, I had no idea what to expect and ended up buying my son some great clothing. Yes, there are a lot of them, so there's lots to choose from. I read some other poeple's not so nice comments and really, what you need to keep in mind, is you're not Nordstroms, so don't expect the clothing to be in brand new condition, but you are also not paying those prices. If you want that type of clothing then go to Nordstroms and pay 10x what you would pay here. In this economy I am so happy that these types of stores are available. I consider us the lucky shoppers. Also, when selling clothing back to her, she will only to take the best - don't give her stuff with holes in it or stains on them, or your boring t-shirt, because she won't to sell them to buyers like us. The whole thing makes sense. I love the store and go there often.

I have found so many great treasures including toys and clothing at Mother's Secret. I refuse to pay retail prices and I don't have to thanks to this store. Plus, you will not find a woman that works harder than the owner, Cathy does. She works her butt off day in and day out to keep this place going - and she's got a little one of her own. Yes this store is a little crowded but it is totally worth it if you don't mind doing a little looking.

If you are looking for an upscale Nordstrom's where the store is huge and meticulously organized, go somewhere else. If you want to support a local business owner, a genuinely good person, and find some incredible deals, check this place out!

I can't get enough of this place, especially since there is new merchandise coming in all of the time. On several occasions I have brought in baby stuff or maternity clothes for trade and have always ended up finding some really great toys or clothes.

You will need to do some looking for finds as the place is a little small, but the search is totally worth it. Plus, the owner is a really good person and it makes me feel good to spend my money there helping a local business owner.

This shop is full of treasures. It reminds me of shopping aardvarks, penny lane and elephant boutique.... but even better because there is so much more there for CHILDREN AND PREGNANT WOMEN!!! found tons of clothes and things for my kids up to junior and women's sizes. The nice thing is that this shop has items for all seaosons for sale and also accepts items for all seasons for store credit or consignment. Very diverse selection of items, anyone can go in and find something they like! Whoever didn't like this shop and wrote bogus bad reviews obviously didn't take a moment to relish the vast variety of items of take a minute to talk to the owner. she was very friendly, helpful and generally was great with us... and very helpful pointing us in the direction of what we were looking for. also, the owners son had helped other customers find what they were looking for while we were in the shop. very nice family run business, not many can pull that off and be successful. One big plus i noticed for moms of toddlers wanting to shop is that once you come in the main entrance, there is a cute pickett fence gate that latches shut for added security for the little ones!!! ;) leighandlaurapatellis

Mother's secret is the best secret in North Orange that every parent & grandparent should discover!!!!
Yes- the store is small & crowded. But that is because it's full of everthing You'll need!!
I recomend not coming in when You're in a hurry, it takes time to look through the huge amount of inventory they have there. But I know You'll kind what you need at a great price.
I've been going there for 2 years now. Kathy & her daughter have been nothing but friendly & helpful! Yes, somtimes they have to answer phones, but tha's part of business. I understand why every item is not priced, they have so much it would be impossible!!!!!
It's like Frederica M. said in her comment " this is not a fancy Botique". I work in one of those for children with a small resale section, If that's what you're looking for come down to my store: "Prettydotz Botique" in Corona Del Mar.
If you are looking for great deals at a greatt price go to Mother's Secret!!!!

I am a struggling single mom and I can trade my kids gently used stuff and my clothes at this store, so I don't have to spend any or a little money depending on what I bring in to trade and what items I choose to buy for my children this place is always overstocked with all seasons so when it's cold or hot I can always find what I need. If you dont like a huge selection, and you want everything tagged, and really organized, and your too good to look though bins, full of all different brands and styles of sweaters, jeans, shorts, shirts, skirts, ect... then you should stick to walmart ect...instead of coming in just so you can write a horible reveiw, about a single mother, who is working to help moms like me on a budget!

I love this store!!!! As an owner of a day care center I am always on the go. I stop in and the friendly owner always points out new items/toys or things that never fail with my kids. She has a great selection and knows where everything is. Everything I buy is always clean and am appalled some of the other reviews are so negative. I always find some unexpected treasures!!

I have been shopping here for a very long time and know the owner very well. Shes a sweet lady and works with her daughter and they both have babies and its great because my little one loves going and playing with them and I get to shop. They never would neglect their children and Kathy is such a good mom. Theres so much stuff to choose from and her prices are very fair considering she has brands like: naartjie, quicksilver, baby lulu, janie and jack , gap and more! it also doesn't smell unless a baby goes potty and then of course it will smell like a baby! If you don't like a hunt and a very personable owner then maybe this just isn't your store. But your missing out!

Overpriced, unorganized, dirty, no customer service skills. Your better off shopping at thrift stores, craigslist, or yard sales. The owner lets her toddler roam the store unattended, poor thing almost walked out of the store with us! She was on the phone yelling at someone loud. Just not a great experience. And I don't have the energy to look through this messy over stuffed smelly store! No thankx.

The store was crowded, dirty and did not smell fresh. There were no price tags, just signs with amounts ranging from $1.99-6.99 for items on the rack. Every item I checked on was $6.99. The staff was on the phone during my entire visit and never actually stopped to answer any questions. I would not recommend this store to anyone.

this store gave me a headache! perfect place to go if you want to experience claustrophobia. if your thinking your going to get a good deal, think again. the owner will look at the item and just throw you a price, and not a fair one. she's a rip off. i think she is a greedy one, i mean just look around its wall to wall clothing ,toys, shoes, and it goes no where. hmm wonder why? maybe she needs to drop her prices,i don't know. either way i didn't enjoy the store, matter fact i couldn't wait to get outside where i could breath, lol. also, the owner wasn't friendly, and she made me feel like i was bothering her when i was asking about prices. maybe she should invest in some price tags. i just think the place is a dump. i guess some people don't take pride in their stores.

I have been shopping with Mothers Secret for over 11 years. I LOVE this store. Kathy is amazing and friendly, and now that her daughter is all grown up and helping, she is just as amazing as her mom! As for the comments of the smell, if it does (which I've never noticed) maybe its from SO many babies being in there, I have NEVER had a piece of clothing that was dirty, or smelled. I always take my childrens old clothes and toys, and trade them for gently used clothing which is always good quality!

I love this store!!! I always find what I am looking for whether it is cloths or toys, and can take in the cloths my child has outgrown to trade for the next size. My husband and back this store 100% it is affordable and another way to lessen our carbon foot print. It is a way to recycle. The store is crowded but if you want nice perfect rack then either volunteer your time to help out this one woman shop, or go shop at babies r us and pay ridicules prices. I have never noticed a smell except maybe my sweat from excitement when I find something really good. Another great thing is that my daughter gets a bit jealous when we go there to get cloths for her baby brother, the prices are so good that she can always pick out a toy.

Every time I shop at Mother's Secret, the owner greets me with a smile and I always leave with adorable clothes for my girls. My best friend lives in the bay area and always wants to go there when she visits to find things for her son (mostly great pants). With regard to the comment about cleanliness that someone made, I have to say I would guess that the owner dry cleans everything before she puts it out because the clothing always smells fresh. I agree you must approach this shopping experience as a treasure hunt. If you do this you will be more than rewarded for your efforts with extremely well-priced items!

All the clothes are in excellent condition and Kathy would never sell anything with throw up on it. People need to stop posting such stupid comments about this store. I've been going there for for 6yrs and love it!!!! Since I was pregnant I have gotten everything I needed for a fraction of the price. Its owned and operated by a mom and her daughter, and remember they have to resale that is a very tough job to please the buyers and sellers. This is a service!! where else can you bring old stuff and get something else? Its recycling and saving money! its a wonderful store

While there is a large selection of children's clothing/strollers/toys, the store is really overcrowded and difficult to shop in. Also, there was a lingering smell of spit-up throughout the store that may make it hard to distinguish which clothes are clean.

Ive been going here for about 3 years the owner is great and true they have tons of inventory -go expecting to treasure hunt -you will find some great high end items for extremely fair prices -and please understand how hard it must be to work a retail store and have a large family while doing this all on your own ! Regardless if your a single mom or with a partner -how sometimes normal housework can be a task alone-Imagine running a store alone with your 1 year old there -ringing up customers answering the phone...etc. --If your looking for high end brand maternity denim etc great place ! there is tons and tons and tons of shoes ! robies nike vans etc etc .

Patience is a virtue - and one that comes in handy when shopping at this fabulous store! I have found so many steals for my daughters, and now that I'm having a son I know I'll be able to find even more. I've gotten a lot of high end brands here from Roxy, Doc Martens, Naartjie, and Gymboree. It is so worth it to take the time and go through the inventory. There is a lot of inventory, and it can seem overwhelming, but understanding how they work and with the help of the owner you can get some swesome deals. The owner is great, and is always helpful. In today's economy a store like this is a Godsend! I moved out of Orange County, but when I'm in town I always come back in to check and see what I can find. Love this store!

I have been to this store numerous times, and always leave with great deals. The owner of the store is so friendly and helpful. This is one of those stores that you have to dedicate some serious time to, but the results you get can be awesome! They have everything imaginable for pregnancy through preteens. Love this store!

This place is ok. I understand it takes a lot of time to price things so I recommend the owner group things by price. Like everything in this bin is $3, etc. People are way more willing to buy when they know the price! They have some cute things there you just have to hunt.

This store if fantastic, like a treasure hunt! If you're looking for a fancy boutique, this is not the place for you. The owner is great, hard-working, and very friendly.
I went there to sell some of my kids' clothes that no longer fit, and had the pleasure to get to know Kathy, the owner. All I can say is that I left the store with inspiration. This lady is raising a lot of kids all by herself, due to a tragedy in the family and this store is her income. I would urge everyone who is looking to get kids' clothes to give this store a chance. GREAT prices, and great finds, very, very good-condition clothes.
Kathy, it was very nice to know you, and I will be back very soon!

Mother's Secret, should not remain a secret. I have shopped there for years. It is small enough that you can shop and keep an eye on your children. Children grow at an alarming rate and saving money, especially in this economy is essential.

You as a consumer can also take items to sell, for cash or store credit.She does not require consignment.

I left the store the other day for under $35.00 and got 3 pairs of pants & 5 shirts, Gap, Tony Hawk, Quicksilver and other brand names. All without stains or tears. My 5 yr. old grandson was with me and not asking, "when are we leaving", It is child friendly, as you shop your kids are free to play with the toys the owner has available. Other treasures which can be found are strollers, bedding sets, books, puzzles, toys that are just for fun and educational. The list is to long to mention everything.

I have even found very expensive brand name clothing for my adult daughters, besides maternity clothes.

You must have time to search through a huge stock of what you are looking for, but it is worth the time. If you're in a hurry then I would recommend you pay retail, if not check it out.

You must have time to search through a huge stock of what you are looking for, but it is worth the time. If you're in a hurry then I would recommend you pay retail, if not check it out.

Worth going through her merchandise to find incredible deals on maternity pants. It was worth the 6 hour drive from Santa Cruz! The Owner is awesome! I found designer jeans that must have been over $200 new and never worn for under $40!

Did you know that this store is operated by a Single Mother of Six Kids who works 7 days a week, and only gets a day off when she closes her door, so give her a break! Everything is priced by brand, condition, demand, just like craigslist, ebay, but no driving, emailing, shipping, haggling or bartering, when you have lot's of item's coming in at one time impossible to tag when your buying, selling, trading, thats why there is such a big selection, it's resale & recycling not a retail store! Give her support, understanding and bussiness!!!

Horrible store customer service. Went there and no prices; disorganized. Asked for clarification and the person working there snapped indicating it is to hard to put prices on items. Will never go there again.

I began shopping Mothers Secret when I was pregnant with my 4th child. I wished I had known about it with my other children! I was able to find all the stylish maternity clothes at a fraction of the price. Now that my son is here, I am not only to find all the name brand items at great prices, but I am able to recycle his outgrown things as well. The staff is extremely helpful...if there is something you're looking for, you just need to ask!!

When I'm feeling the heat from my husband to not spend too much $$...This store always satisfies my shopping urge...and the owner and daugher are the sweetest people ever! She buys my used things for a fair price and I always leave with something from her shop..She has TONS of CLOTHING and I know all her hard work sorting and pricing makes it easy for me to find things! Thanks for all the hard work you do!!!

This store Rocks! I only wish I knew about it sooner I would have saved a ton of money getting ready for baby. I love that I can recycle my daughter's out grown clothes and toys, for ones more suitable for her age. She is our first and I had no clue how fast infants grow! Cool family run business. Plan to be their long enough to hunt through everything, There is a wall to wall inventory.
The owner has a website now too. www.motherssecretstore.com
which helps give you an idea of how the store operates, and what you can find there.

As a new father. I had no knowledge to how quick a child grows and the need for continuous clothing, toys and accessories. After visiting the Mothers Secret Store In Orange, CA. I found everything I needed and things I didn't know I would need. The helpful staff understood my needs and met more than I expected. They specialized in Maternity, Women's Clothing, Babies, Juniors, Toys even furniture. I would Highly recommend a visit to Mothers Secret before going to the retail store. You really have to see all that Mothers Secret offers to believe the savings and low to high end items they offer.

Not just a resale shop it is a adventure, I'ts a mall of pre owned inventory, all in one store, allow extra time to search, packed with great stuff, all seasons. They carry baby,infant,childrens, maternity, and womens clothes. Huge maternity section! 90% of maternity priced $3.99 - 8.99 and 90% of kids clothes are priced $ 1.99 - 5.99. Dedicated to single moms, and owned and operated by a mom of 5.

I've found this store to have a wide selection of clothing, sometimes too much clothing. At times it's hard to find something your looking for just because of the overwhelming amount of clothes. They are gently used and usually in very good condition. There's a great children's section and if you happen to have your children with you there is a small play area. The prices are reasonable and the staff is very friendly and helpful.

This is an independantly owned and run children's resale business. The selection of merchandise is very extensive, which can be a bit overwhelming. If you need something in particular, most likely you can find it here with a bit of searching. She keeps a very large inventory. The only drawbacks I have expericenced are that there have been a couple of times when I arrived at their stated opening time, and no one was around to open, also because there is so much merchandise it can be time consuming to look through everything, so I usually come when I have time on my hands and usually without my children.

I tried several times to buy maternity clothing here. I had no luck. Yes, the owner is very friendly, but this is more of a kids resale store than maternity store. The items were priced fairly high, and I usually thought I could get a similar item cheaper brand new from another store. I wouldnt drive far out of my way to browse here, but it youre close by, maybe you will get lucky.

Mother's Secret really is a secret. Nestled away along Tustin St.. in Orange, it is easy to miss. When I was pregnant with both of my kids, I shopped there frequently and bought many maternity items from this place. The owner is very nice. Very personable once you get to know her. She recognized me when I came and and made small talk. I got to know her a bit and really enjoyed my visits to this shop. It is somewhat small and a bit hard to navigate with a stroller, but there is a small play area in the back of the store for small ones. There is a selection of kids clothing from newborn on up. I don't know what size the clothing goes up to. She also has nice used toys. I rarely purchase any new toys for my kids. They get enough new stuff from nana. The toys I get them are usually used and in very good to excellent condition and can be found here. She also has kids shoes, hats, strollers, high chairs, some books and a very nice selection of maternity clothes. I'd say, almost anything you need for

PROS: Good Prices, nice selection, nice customer service.
CONS: None
