What Are We Currently Buying?

We are currently buying Spring clothes in sizes newborn – 14 as well as maternity wear, kids’ books, toys, baby equipment and more. Some of the hot items we look for in the spring are: high quality rain gear, cotton play dresses, sturdy, high-quality sandals, and wide-brimmed sun hats.

While fall and winter clothes are now considered out-of-season for us, we are more than happy to take a look at any season, anytime! However, some sellers are more satisfied when they sell “in-season” clothing because we are able to buy more, and pay a bit more for in-season clothes. When we buy out-of-season clothing, we are more selective with brands/condition, and pay a little less because we will be storing it.

Did you know that we take in walk-in amounts to buy on Sundays now?
