They sell children's resell and new items. From Cribs to socks they have it all! Because of them I was able to dress my son and daughter in namebrand clothes and shoes in excellent condition for a fraction of the cost! I have bought

I bought most of my daughter's spring clothes here at very good prices. The clothing is used, but they look brand new. I love shopping and getting good deals.

I've been shopping at this store since Janurary 2012, and I've got to say I am completely satisfied. I've bought a stroller, an Exersaucer and a Pack'n'Play, as well as smaller items. The staff has been great answering all my questions and

I think if you're looking for a great deal this is the perfect place to shop. They have great brand names like Gap, Children's Place, Ralph Lauren, and Old Navy at such low prices. I've shopped there for years and I will continue to shop

As a buyer, I felt that this was a good consignment store. They had a lot of clothes, Pack 'N Plays, strollers, bedding, etc.

Nice people, friendly service. It's a small store and if you're dropping off call first or you might decide they're rude if they don't take what you bring.

I completely disagree with the other postings, the manager and the staff are always friendly and helpful to me whenever I go in. It is true that you may only receive a dollar per CLOTHING item and you could get more at a yardsale, but this is much less work... you bring in the items and come back later the same day to get the money. I aslo agree that the prices have increased within the past couple of years but I have also noticed that the quality of the items has gotten much nicer, now they have a lot more brand new items still with the tags on them.

And one more thing.... ask to be put on their email list because they send you great coupons all the time!

I don't think I will purchase or ATTEMPT to sell things there anymore. First off, they used to give cash for things they bought from you. Now it's store credit. Plus, half the time the stuff I bring in is WAAY cuter or nicer than what they have in the store, and they don't buy it. They are also cheap. It's almost insulting that they think you'll be okay w.a dollar per piece or something. I could get more $ for stuff at a yard sale! Secondly, I don't feel that the majority of the prices are all that fabulous. I can find $12 jeans for my 6 yr.old on clearance, BRAND NEW for the same price or less. I have 3 children and I never pay full price. I'm a self-proclaimed deal finding pro! so, I've shopped here since my oldest was an infant, and the prices just keep going up. I find much better deals at the GOODWILL, and they have half price days, for really cute stuff!
I agree w/the other reviews about rude service the manager is not pleasant at all.

I recently purchased an item for my toddler that was in several pieces. The owner assured me that all of the pieces were there and even put it together. When I got it home, it kept collapsing, so I looked it up on-line and discovered that a crucial piece was missing. I called the owner to see if she could look around for it for me and all she said was, "I'm too busy to look. You bought it and all sales are final."

Clothing for children can be quite pricey, even costing the same amount as adult clothing, even when less cloth is used. Although the clothing here isn't new, it is tattered and torn to pieces. Everything they sell has been gently worn and it looks brand new. My young relatives don't know the difference and they love the fact that I am finding the brands that their friends where. I love the fact that I can make them happy and still save money.

A great place to pick up gently used kids things at great prices. Some of it is really cute! Store is well stocked but a little crowded - most resale stores are.

PROS: Great way to save a ton on kids clothes.
CONS: Have to spend a little time to find the really good stuff.
