What Are We Currently Buying?

We are at the tail-end of our summer buying season, which means we are buying more selectively, but we are still looking for sturdy, good-condition summer clothing in sizes NB-14, as well as maternity. Walk in with 2 grocery bags full of clothes Monday – Saturday, or call to set up an appointment for large amounts.

As always, we are 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.

**Our fall/winter buying season kicks off August 6, so plan accordingly and don’t hesitate to call to set up your appointment!**

Did you know that we buy on Sundays now?
