Great selection of girls sizes 4-6 (the sizes I was looking for). The rest of the store seemed FULL of clothes, accessories, and toys. Found some great deals on books as well. The customer service was great - greeted when I came in the door and very curteous. Was given information on how to become a consignor and will be back more to consign and shop!

I can't say I wasn't warned. I took in a tote of clothes. They left a Columbia jacket in it and two pairs of pants from Gap that STILL HAD THE TAGS ON. There was a little piece of paper in the tote that said the clothes were out of style and dirty or stained. The Columbia coat was from 2009 - not a stain on it. The pants were, again, new and had the fraying, whiskering, and fake little "holes" in them. IF the people there knew what they were doing when it comes to current styles, they could have looked online and seen the pants. Ridiculous. However, the lady behind me in line ran out to their parking lot while I was getting ready to leave and purchased the coat and the jeans. She gave me $100 for the lot. I guess Puddle Jumpers prefers to lose money because that's money that could have gone in their pocket AND I guess they prefer having their customers shop outside their store as this seems to be a common occurence. Won't go back to sell or buy.

The place used to be so cute. Now it looks dirty and rundown on the inside. Bathroom is filthy. The place has the smell of stale urine. Rude employees. Clueless when it comes to taking clothing. knowing what is in style, knowing the brands (they have no clue on boutique brands), or knowing what customers need/are looking for. Used to shop here all the time for grandkids. Not worth the jaunt over anymore.

Rude. Not a good selection of clothing. Ironic that people are saying they won't take clothing that is stained because I have given MANY stained, over-worn items off their racks to the people behind the counter. I have also seen them turn down great clothing and seen people completely baffled as to why. I have also purchased clothing from people in the parking lot! :-) I agree.....don't take your good stuff there. Sell it on Ebay. If you want to take anything to them, bring in old, outdated (and I mean SERIOUSLY outdated) clothing.

I agree with the customer who said the people are clueless who work there. I actually saw them give back a tote of khakis, jeans, and some other cute stuff to a customer. The woman read the little note they had put in there and it said they were being returned because they were the wrong style and they were "stained." She very nicely asked the teenage employee where the stains were on a couple pairs of pants she pulled out and the girl was SO RUDE!!! I actually followed her out of the store because her items were so cute and offered to buy some of her clothing! I went through them with her in the parking lot. She had Old Navy and Gap, some older Gymbo, some Hanna, and a couple super cute boutique pieces. I got a huge amount of quality clothing and Puddle Jumpers lost my business and some good sales. I don't know what "style" the employees are looking for, but they lost some good sales by NOT taking this woman's clothing. There was not a stain on ANY of the clothing. The Gymo lines she had were ones that I have seen on Ebay where just a plain cotton shirt with a bit of decoration goes for upwards of $35. I would also agree that the old owner was SO nice and so were her employees, minus the one bleached blond crazy one. Puddle Jumpers has really gone to pot.

You always have to call ahead to schedule an appt. I'm not sure when the person who said they lived two hours away did this because they do NOT get you in the same day. Even if you only have 1 item. I don't have problems with calling ahead to schedule, but just know that you won't get in the same day.

The store is lacking in sizes 8-10 for boys and girls. Part of the problem is that the people they have go through clothes are clueless. We brought in khaki and navy shorts for fall because it is still hot the first couple months and kids who wear uniforms wear these to school in August, Sept., and sometimes even Oct. Wouldn't take them. They aren't aware of current styles or trends or brands. I know people who have had new items given back to them because of "fraying" or "too much wear". Hello? Check out the Gap website.....this is all they are selling.

Gymboree has many lines that are older that people actually search out and collect. They won't take them, even in pristine condition. They have a policy that the clothes has to be less than 2 years old or they won't take them because "styles change so much." Slighly true but I don't know how much high quality jeans and khakis change.

I have looked there for uniform clothes for my kids as have my friends. They are told that "nobody brings them in." Yes, people do. They just don't take them. I had a tote full of them, all great condition and they turned them down. I sold them on Ebay for over $100. Ditto the Gymboree lines that they don't know a thing about.

The old owner treated customers with respect. Her store was super cute and boutique-y. Yes, the store has been expanded by putting in a stairwell, but the selection has gone downhill, the people are rude (especially the snotty teenager that works there), and the store is bland and bleak.

As a former owner of a consignment shop, and someone with years of experience in kids clothing, I find it quite sad that Puddle Jumpers is not the store of old. If you want to take the time to go through clothes that are in great condition only to have them given back to you - go here. If you want to find cute, trendy, high quality brands - don't go here. If you want to actually make money on clothing items - sell on Ebay. Puddle Jumpers used to be the premo place to shop. Unfortunately now it's all wet.

I am a shopper as well as a consignor. I recently brought some clothing in and had AWESOME customer service. I live 2 hours away and called ahead. They got me in right away and worked with my schedule. I couldn't of been more happier with their customer service and pleasant attitudes. I won't bring my children's clothing anywhere else.

When you have kids, you need to save money! A friend told me about this store several years ago. I have purchased many items here for my children - mainly jackets and pants.

They carry used name brand kids clothing. Some prices are higher than Kmart but you are getting name brands that will hold up to kids wear and tear.

The store is located in a house and the small parking lot is around the back. It is very crowded in the house. Different rooms are for different sizes. They also have baby items.

This store has a huge selection of clothes, accessories, toys, baby items - almost anything for kids. The brands are great, though I thought some items were a little pricey - you could probably get new for less on sale. They alway have interesting items sitting out in front of the store that grab your attention when you drive by. All in all, a great place to shop.

Great consignment shop for high quality newborn to children size 16 items. They take in only high quality items, no stains or tears. Items are all clean and very well maintained. They have a wide selection of clothing, as well as baby furniture. Cute little decorations from time to time as well. Need to check back often as stock rotates continually. Off street parking.

Since I was next door at the womens used clothing store, I decided to see if there were any clothes for my grandkids here. They have a ton of clothing here. What is nice is that they carry the larger size clothing for girls and not just the toddler items. You do need to have the time to search through the racks of clothes.

PROS: free parking
CONS:

Puddle Jumpers is a good place if you are looking for gently used childrens clothing. It is located on 7th Avenue in Marion, just west of the McDonalds. Unlike many of the used childrens clothing stores, Puddle Jumpers carries larger sizes not just baby or preschool sizes. I found that this is a great place to pick up jeans for my rapidly growing children.

This is a great quality consignment shop. Almost all the clothes are nice name brand items in excellent condition. They are a fraction of the cost of the item brand new from the actual store. Most items are reasonably priced. On the occasions I have been there, it seems that there are so many clothes, it is hard to get around and see all the clothes! Other then that definetly worth checking out.

They do have the clothes sorted out by size. But it is crowded in this house style business. The prices are good on some items and just over half the price of new. So you really have to watch that. Some of the clothes aren't in the best of shape even though they are picky (at times) what they will accept.
