What Are We Currently Buying?

We are currently buying fall and winter 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 fall are current-style jeans, warm pajamas, quality fleece jackets, sturdy and stylish school clothes, and like-new sneakers and waterproof shoes and boots. This is also a great time to sell your quality winter jackets, snow pants, snow boots, and Halloween costumes! Spring and summer clothes are now considered out-of-season for us, but we are happy to take a look at your quality spring and summer clothes in sizes NB-14 & maternity. When we buy out-of-season clothes, we are more selective and pay a little less.

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