I'm a new Grandma and I wasn't sure exactly what to buy since so many things have change since way back when!! I was hoping to save a little by going to a consignment shop. I could not believe how clean and organized everything was and the clerk helping me, Amanda, was so patient and informative. I also visited a shop in Central Park where they were rude and the prices were way too high for much less quality. I've told my daughters and all my friends that Happily Ever After is the best children's consignment shop in Fredericksburg. I'm glad they are picky about what they sell and they have great prices. Thanks! Gayle

The owner needs to work on her people skills! She is extremely rude and arrogant! Do NOT consign there! I did twice and found her contract and rules, extreme and her attitude very arrogant but at the time it was the only place I knew to consign. The last time I brought in items I didn't have to deal with the owner and instead had a nice girl look through my items. She returned a couple items of clothing due to stains that showed up under black light. They were not visible to the naked eye. I was fine with this as she was extremely kind about returning the items and explained the issues in a very nice manner. Today I went in to consign and I had several toys that had barely been played with that were quite costly to buy new. I thought the owner would be thrilled to have them in the shop. She first held up a cute stuffed snowman and told me, "ah, it's spring?!" like I didin't know that but the way she said it was unbelievable. Then she held up a dancing Mickey Mouse by the ear like it had something nasty on it and said, "and look at this" with a scowl. I said, that it was brand new and may have some dust etc. on it from sitting on the shelf not being used. Well then she pulled a bunny out and said it smelled! I am sorry but it DID NOT smell!!! My house is spotless and these items were clean and barely played with. I have never been so insulted in my life! Mind you this woman has taken tons of items from me two previous times and told me how gorgeous some of them were and how well I did on bringing in clean nice items. Of course the way she said it often makes you feel like a little kid at school. She treats her consigners this way. I guess today I got a slap on the hand. Well, I took all my stuff back and told her how rude she was. There's plenty of other children's consignment shops popping up every day. I will find one of them and suggest you do too!

I went to fill a prescription for oxycontin.
I was told it would be about an hour.
I piddled around for an hour and came back to be told that they didn't have enough to fill the scrip.
She suggested that I drive to another store down the street to see if they could refill it.
I said how about calling and finding out of they have it before I waste my time. She said she couldn't do that because it was a drug.
I saw red......I said what do you sell here for God's sake/ you sell DRUGS and you tell me you can't find out if another DRUGstore has a specific DRUG????? Of course my voice was rising with my blood pressure.Nope, I won't tell you what happened but I was happy.

I visited Happily Ever After right after it opened and became one of their first buyers and consigners. I love the selection and the price is good. I will say that the consignment prices and terms have changed numerous times over the years so be careful if you are looking to drop things off make sure you read the contract again. The clothing is geared along the name brand lines, rather than cheap play clothing so expect to pay more than a thrift shop or Goowill. The staff is friendly and the shop is set up to accomodate children.

This shop provides the new parents (or grandparents) a place to obtain good clothes and other items needed for the "apple of your eye" from newborn to other young children. I haven't looked for much older.
When I became a new grandmother, I found many treasures which were very useful for the grandbaby. They outgrow things so fast that a bargain is wonderful.
