The owners husband, is rude , disrespectful and downright hostile and degrading and has shown himself to be that way on several occasions over the last 10 years . Tread carefully, lest you become and object of his scorn and disdain...furthermore, 'Douglas'( the one who is always yelling at people) is writing most of the glowing reviews for this shop ! trust me , a TRULY savvy shopper would NEVER consider this store a sweet deal ... and coupled with the bi-polar atmosphere ?? Not a chance...

This is possibly the cleanest, best organized and most complete children's resale shop in the Chicago metropolitan area. The owner, Debbie, has been in business since 1984. From the beginning she has maintained a fabulous pricing structure to the advantage of her many customers who are also very savvy shoppers. She is very knowledgeable about all aspects of her business and is more that willing to share that knowledge. She is helpful from start to finish and will even refer shoppers to other reputable resale shops in the area. Customers all return knowing that they will not leave empty handed. Lastly and perhaps most important, because Debbie has such impeccable manners virtually everyone has a pleasant and memorable shopping experience.

This store is lovely. It has high quality items for the working class. Expensive brands that are at least half of retail. New stuff comes in everyday which makes for a great turnover. If you like looking for wonderful things at random, this is the place. There are children's clothing with no spots or holes that are decently priced. I fully support this small business. Clean furniture that is sturdy. I'm sure it's hard to compete with the Chain Stores that have been popping up everywhere. I visit it often and suggest you do the same.

I've tried visiting this place a couple times now, hoping that what I found would be different.. and it wasn't.

The owners are unfriendly, unhelpful, and outright rude. The prices are way too high for resale, in some cases going over the price of the same item new! On my most recent visit (today) I was treated to the shop owner yelling "You're an idiot, you're an idiot!" to some people standing just outside. I'm not sure what was going on, but that doesn't speak well for any business, having the owner (or any employee even) being so rude and disrespectful with customers around.

Avoid this place, there are much better in the area, like the Be Smart Resale Shop, at 4904 West Irving Park Road. It's just down the road (Milwaukee to irving park, take a right, 1 block down.) the prices are better and the owner is super nice

Contrary to Amanda G's opinion, First Seconds Resale is beyond reasonable in pricing. Obviously if you are unaware of name brands you will think the prices are high. If one can find a pair of new Stride Rite shoes that retail around $50

The whole point of resale is finding a bargain, but at First Seconds, they want to charge you only a buck or two down from full price! Some merchandise is stored in Ziploc bags - other merchandise hangs in the window to fade from the sun. Children's clothes are ridiculously overpriced, and old worn toys are marked at outrageous prices. This shop seems to think its used, cheap merchandise is worth more than it was new!

PROS: None!
CONS: Overpriced!

This is a great place to shop for used clothing. I have never found anything here, that had either a stain or a hole in it. They offer excellent deals, on brand name clothing. They have really good items for maternity wear and baby clothes. I find alot here every time I visit. Everything is very easy to find, and kept neat and organized. I really recommend them hihgly.
