My kids grow like weeds, and while I am a dedicated bargain shopper and coupon clipper, I sometimes find it difficult to justify spending money on clothing my girls will only wear a few times. So I’ve recently added a new list of stores to my shopping rotation — children’s resale shops and consignment stores in Greater Boston!
Many of these stores have super cute, high quality clothes and shoes for a fraction of the price. And there are so many that sell only kids’ clothing! Here are some fantastic kids’ resale shops and consignment stores in the Boston area for the next time you need a new outfit for your littles.
North of Boston
This Melrose shop was opened by a hip mom devoted to reusing and recycling. It has won many “family favorite” awards and offers a wide selection of quality secondhand maternity and nursing apparel, children’s clothing from newborn to big kids size 10, and baby gear and goods.
In addition to secondhand clothing — up to teen sizes — this consignment shop features adorable window displays plus locally made onesies, handmade booties and bibs, and many seasonal gift items!
This resale shop supports the Fox Library and Robbins Library in Arlington, and they accept donations of gently used, like-new clothing sized newborn to big kid 12, plus toys, books, and baby gear. This store is run by volunteers and is a great place to find children’s clothing while supporting the community.
This resale shop features gently worn name-brand children’s clothing in sizes from newborn to 10. In addition, they sell baby gear, like high chairs and strollers and name-brand toys. All clothing, baby gear, and toys are current (within three years old) in order to ensure safety for all shoppers!
This is a four-day children’s clothing consignment sales event for gently used, name brand children’s clothing and gear.
