What Are We Currently Buying?

We are happy to take a look at clothing for 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 clothing. When we buy out-of-season clothes we are more selective with brands/condition, and pay a little less because we will be storing it.

We are currently buying summer clothes in sizes NB-14 as well as maternity, kid’s books, toys, baby equipment and more. Hot items for summer include (but are not limited to) rain gear, cotton play dresses for girls, sturdy shorts, high quality sandals like Keens, swimwear, rash guards, sunhats and water shoes.

Fall and winter clothes are now considered out-of-season for us, but we are happy to take a look at your quality fall and winter clothes in sizes NB-14 and Maternity. When we buy out-of-season clothes, we are more selective and pay a little less. As always, we are eager to take a look at quality winter outerwear and Halloween costumes year-round
