as a foster parent I frequently shop for nice clothing in a variety of sizes. My biggest complaint is the way they have packed the clothes so tightly on the racks that it is almost impossible to look through them. I have to agree that most of the girls are not very friendly and I often have to ask for assistance, as it is rarely offered.
If you are willing to take the time to look, you can find some nice deals. BUT - watch carefully, I have recently seen some items that were priced higher than new things on sale in our local stores.

I am a busy mom of 4 and I go to this store at least once a month to buy and sell kids things. I luv the whole idea that I can trade stuff in for stuff that will fit my kids. They pay outright so I do not have to come back to check to see if anything has sold and they pay according to the name brands of the clothes so for Walmart stuff you do get a lot less, but that means that their prices are amazing for great name brands that I would not be able to afford otherwise. They seem to choose merchandise carefully which also means that what they sell is in great condition. Overall I really love this place and will continue to shop there til my kids out grow it.

I am very dissapointed with this shop. I went to sell alot of my son and i's gently used belongings. I brought in about 15 grocery bags with our belongings in it. Boys clothes that had no stains, womens clothing, tons of toys, and movies. They were so picky I brought back more than half of the previous things I brought in. They didn't give me a reason unless I asked. They kept four barbie dolls that I never open that date back to 2000, and all of those dolls cost more than $40.00 each!! I brought a couple of movies, both have been opened, but none damaged. But they decided to only keep the most expensive one. I brought in a TON of little boys clothes that never been worn and they didn't accept them!!! They also told me that they didn't accept certain things I brought in, and as I walked around the store, they DID have and sold those things!!! They also didn't accept my sons ten pair of shoes (HES NEVER WORN) because they told me they were to "dingy" and "worn", but they had about 100 shoes in their shoe bins that were worse than that!!!!! I shouldve taken all my stuff back, because of all the expensive things they kept they only gave me $30.00!!!! They don't talk much nor do they welcome you. Everyone would have better luck using eBay instead!! I'll be sure that I will never come back there! That was the first and last time!!

This is a great consignment shop. I'm glad they're a little picky. I don't want or have time to go through junk! I also thought the prices were fair on most of the merchandise. Would definitely recommend!

I love this place. It is the only place in town where you can actually get money for items you no longer need. Their selection is great probably because they carefully select the merchandise themselves. Their new furniture prices are also good. I go in everytime my kids outgrow their size and trade for new things for them

Yes, they have some GREAT furniture and clothing for sale. However, when giving them items for conseignment, dont expect to be treated nicely. They inspect each item of clothing, which im glad they do. However, they handed me back most of my clothing with no explaination, some of which were brand new. They make you feel dirty and unwelcome. Not to mention, there was never a smile or a hello from any of the girls in there. A place that deals with children/parents should be much friendlier.

I have had much luck finding good clothing here. They specialize in consignments of children's items, and will buy merchandise outright from you. They also offer a variety of new baby items.

Great prices on used children's toys, clothes and apparatus. Everything seemed to be in really good condition. I would check this place out before buying new.
