I don't know where the people who gave negative reviews normally shop... but I drive 1.5 hrs to go to the Second Chance. I've been to many 2nd hand & thrift stores here in KS & was not pleased... until I found 2nd chance. Their prices are fair, as is their purchasing. When they're overstock on items, they may not purchase... but who can blame them. The rumor is... they may be closing due to owner illness soon & I for one will miss them terribly!

Bare bones, the clothes & gear are clean, fair to excellent quality and prices are very good.
However...The store is not being maintained. The interior is actually on par or worse condition then thrift/goodwill stores. The aesthetics are horrible. Unfinished wall repair/repainting. Shop packed to the hilt with stuff. My child had to use the restroom but we were forced to go to Penny Annie's because the stench of urine (ammonia) burned our throats and eyes. For older kids that need/want to try on clothes, the fitting area is in the oder-y back room.

I still resale there and shop there. Their incentive program is great, selection great but I think this is an excellent example of how when "you" are the only thing in town (only resale shop specializing in infant & children clothes), the small stuff is really discounted.

Second Chance, you have a second chance....clean up your shop or let someone else run it that can!

I wouldn't recommend this store if you are looking for good quality second hand stuff for your children. Firstly to sell stuff to them, they are so limited on space, they only look at your stuff sometimes 6 weeks later depending on what's sold down inside the store. They also give you very little for your items (we were offered $10 for a one year old car seat we paid $100 new). The selections are okay. Most of the stuff I've seen could have been cleaned up better and the clothes always seem to have lots of holes and stains. The baby gear and furniture is often in "very used" shape with lots of stains, nicks, and sometimes broken pieces. There used to be several resale shops in Lawrence and this is the last one. I would rather drive to Kansas City and go to a variety of other resale shops there than waste my time or money here.

and it's the only kids resale shop in town. They do have a great selection of clothes, books, toys, accessories and baby furniture. They will take just about anything I have brought in. The have a great selection of maturnity clothes. They have alot of large sizes and not very many smalls. But I guess they have no way to control what sizes people bring in. The prices are the best also.

I went here to find clothes for my dog, and I found tons of nice toys, books and clothing for children. Some of it is new with tags so i can get stuff for my friends with babies, or people who need help. I recomend it to all my friends with kids, or friends with dogs. The toys and books are clean and nice.. definately a great store!!

I am in bad need of a play pen. I went to Second Chance on Thursday this week at 5:50. The door was locked but there was an employee inside hanging clothes. I knocked on the door and she mouthed "we're closed". The recording on their answering machine says Thursday hours are 9-7. I called this morning at 9:10 a.m. (Friday) to ASK if they have a playpen. No one answered. The answering machine said they open at 9:00. I'm very frustrated and if I weren't in desperate need of a playpen (for grandchild) I wouldn't bother to call on them again.
