Has anyone else found a local 2nd hand baby/kid store that they love? I have come to realize especially in smaller baby sizes that shoes and clothing you purchase or gifted may not even have been worn. That being said that you can find practically new items for a fraction of the normal price.

We ended up finding a store in town for us (after 2 other failed attempts) that is clean and amazing. They sella few new items and second hand, furniture, strollers, carriers, clothes, etc. They even have a "trade" counter where you can bring in items, if acceptable they will offer a cash or trade credit amount for anything in the store! If they don't accept the items you can put for them to donate to local charity/families in need.

I've never heard of a trade option at the 2nd hand stores I go to-- this is amazing! I'll have to shop around and find one.

Call me cheap but if mama doesn't have a lot of money, she's definitely doing second-hand shopping. There's nothing wrong with that and it saves money.

I love second hand items. We purchased about 50% of our daughters stuff second hand. It helped out friends of ours who were selling the items to buy new for their kiddo, and saved us money on things she was only going to use for a short time. I like to go into the second hand shops and support their business. You can often find things at decent prices in great shape or brand new.

Yes! Love our local second hand shop. It's actually just for baby clothes so the ladies there are AMAZING and always want to play with the babies. The clothes are in such good shape and so cheap!

Where are you located? Chicago has some good ones - Kangaroo Kids is our favorite. They have all ages from newborns to school years. They have toys, gear, clothes, shoes, etc. You can resell to them too for either credit or cash. They do not sell car seats or strollers though, I think that might be a Chicago rule about reselling those, but not 100%...

We only use second hand clothes and furniture. It saves money and helps out both sides of the sale. Stuff is too expensive to buy full price all the time.

Unfortunately, there is no second hand shop near me (( but I exchange baby and kids cloaths with my friends, it definitely saves money.

I absolutely love second hand shop near me, the staff is amazing, they love the kids and they even know what they want I usually donate my kids' clots or save them for my friends' kids.

A friend offered me the cloths from her kids, but I still don't have an opinion if I actually want only new cloaths for my baby or I am ok with the fact that some other kid had that before. I'm only 10 weeks now with my first and we were expecting this pregnancy so long to happen.....

We love Once Upon a Child! It's a national chain and they always have amazing deals!

New baby clothes can be so expensive and it adds up quickly when they constantly grow out of stuff. We love second hand stores for cycling through toys too, since kids tend to get bored with the same old stuff and it's ridiculous to buy new when there is so much used stuff out there. Thrift stores can be hit or miss, and don't usually have the same quality as second hand stores that hand pick their inventory but you do sometimes find a gem or two.

I love looking through second-hand stores for good deals. You can definitely get some great items for a great price if you take some time to look around. I know some people are picky about second hand, but as long as you sanitize the items before you use them, it's so much better to buy used and save the difference!

Yes, they're a great place to get cute clothes. Usually the kids can't seem to wear them out so everything is in pretty good shape.
